Abstract or Description

Seventy-one students were randomly assigned to an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) group training or to a waitlist, completing measures at preintervention, one-month postintervention and two-month follow-up. Students receiving ACT exhibited significantly reduced levels of general psychological distress and negative emotional symptoms at follow-up. Mental health outcomes for ACT were mediated by increases in psychological flexibility and mindfulness. The study suggests that ACT group training could be an effective mental health intervention in educational settings.
