Vargas Nieto, Juan Camilo | 2020
According to recent research, repetitive negative thinking (PNR) is a recurring feature in the course of different psychopathologies that can be treated through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Therefore, the present study aimed to evaluate the effects of a 6-week ACT protocol, applied through cross-platform technologies, on emotional symptoms, psychological flexibility, and PNR in university students. The participants evaluated (N = 91) were randomly assigned to an online therapy program (iACT, n = 46) or to a waiting list group (WLC, n = 45). The statistical analysis showed significant differences between the iACT and WLC groups, and the estimated effect sizes for these measures were medium to high. It is concluded that Acceptance and Commitment Therapy administered by the Internet has effects for the treatment of PNR, emotional symptoms and improvements in ACT processes.
