Abstract:
The aim of this study is to investigate factors associated with success at valued living in a sample of individuals who have experienced psychosis. The association between psychotic symptoms, illness beliefs, experiential avoidance and success at valued living is explored. Method: Eighty-four individuals with experiences of psychosis completed standardised self-report measures of beliefs about illness, experiential avoidance and valued living. The researcher rated an individual’s psychotic symptoms with an interview-based measure. Data were analysed using correlations and path analysis, an extension of multiple regression. Results: Results indicated that success at valued living was best predicted by experiential avoidance. Neither psychotic symptoms nor illness beliefs were found to be directly associated with success at valued living. The clinical and theoretical implications of these findings are discussed.
