Abstract
This study explored the role of acceptance in accounting for the heterogeneity in psychological functioning in adolescents suffering from cystic fibrosis. Thirty-four adolescents completed a battery of questionnaires assessing acceptance, anxiety, depression, and disability. Regression analyses revealed that acceptance had a significant and unique contribution in explaining adolescents' anxiety, depression, and disability beyond the effects of demographic variables and parameters of disease severity. Forced expiratory volume, a parameter of disease severity, had a unique contribution in explaining disability, but not in explaining anxiety and depression. Our results support the idea that accepting the limitations imposed by a chronic disease and readjusting life goals has a positive effect upon psychological functioning in adolescents with cystic fibrosis. Acceptance-based therapies might prove useful in promoting well-being in adolescents with cystic fibrosis.
