    Does executive functioning predict psychological flexibility?

    Online survey to understand the relationship between psychological flexibility and executive functioning (thinking skills involved in everyday planning) which is hoped to be used to improve future therapeutic interventions.

    This research aims to understand the relationship between executive functioning and psychological flexibility. Executive functions are everyday skills involved in planning, organising and carrying out tasks. Psychological flexibility refers to a set of six processes that help us to be open to our thoughts and feelings and take action in line with our values. These both relate to mental health and wellbeing in everyday life and therapy interventions. Executive functioning, psychological flexibility and psychological wellbeing will be compared for individuals with acquired neurological conditions, those with long-term health conditions and individuals without either condition.

    Just to say... Don't be put off by the grand sounding title of the research topic 😏

    It's the same set of questions I'm regularly asked in my clinic, so I can only presume many of you have too. xx
