Abstract [en]

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) focuses on increasing a person's ability to live a fulfilling, meaningful life together with the discomfort of challenges. Values work in ACT is shown to play an integral part in building and maintaining psychologically flexible behaviour. ACT is rooted in behaviour analysis and defines values in terms of verbally established motivation. ACT empirical research on different levels shows insight into values and its role in psychotherapeutic processes. Research in basic, analogue and applied areas show strong support for valuing as an important process to promote meaning, well-being and improved quality of life across psychological problems but additional research is needed. Valuing is a complex verbal phenomenon and its conceptualization and measurement as a construct are not simple.
