Description

Psychological flexibility refers to the capacity to engage in meaningful patterns of action while being mindful and accepting of any thoughts and feelings that may arise. This construct is used to predict a variety of mental health concerns. Using longitudinal data from the Survey of Psychological Flexibility and Health, this poster examines the relationship between measures of psychological flexibility and the Counseling Center Assessment of Psychological Symptoms (CCAPS). The CCAPS measures a variety of mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, eating concerns, academic distress, hostility, and alcohol use. The data was collected from consenting students at Utah State University who completed baseline and follow up surveys separated by 4 weeks. Relationships between psychological flexibility and the CCAPS may provide valuable insight for those who wish to predict, prevent, and intervene in student mental health.
