Abstract [en]

There has been an increasing interest in applying the concepts of acceptance, mindfulness, and value based intervention to enhance athletes’ psychological flexibility as well as their performance and wellbeing. Development of instruments for the measurement of psychological flexibility in sport settings has not kept the same pace. The Acceptance and Action Questionnaire II (AAQ-II; Bond et al., 2011) is often used to assess psychological flexibility in various interventions. However, AAQ-II provides a measure of the psychological flexibility in general. The purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate an instrument, the Acceptance, Defusion and Action Questionnaire (ADAQ), which measures psychological flexibility in sport contexts. A nine-item version of ADAQ was used for the study of 173 participants between the ages of 16 to 19. All of them were athletes at elite level in team and individual sports and enrolled at Swedish sport academies. Preliminary results from a confirmatory factor analysis indicated a reasonable fit of the model (Chi square=65,88; df=27; p-value=,000; RMSEA=,89). This and other psychometric results will be discussed.
