Efecto de la aplicación de un protocolo de dos sesiones de act sobre la adherencia al tratamiento y la flexibilidad Psicológica en hombres que tienen sexo con hombres y viven con el VIH
Vélez Ocampo, Carlos Humberto | 2020
Difficulties in adherence to treatment for men who have sex with men living with HIV are linked
to patterns of experiential avoidance that keep them away from self-care behaviors. According to
this, this study aims to evaluate the effect of a brief protocol of two sessions of Acceptance and
Commitment Therapy on psychological flexibility and adherence to treatment. A single case
design AB + follow-up was performed with five men who have sex with men and are living with
HIV. Changes were measured by visual analysis and non-overlapping measures for adherence to
treatment behaviors; and by reliable change criterion for measures of psychological flexibility.
After the application of the protocol, changes were observed in the behavior of adherence to
treatment and in psychological flexibility in 4 of the 5 participants.
