Abstract (summary)
Psychological flexibility (PF) is made up of six processes that are characterized by flexibly embracing life events and acting in favor of personal values (see Figure 1). Self-determination theory proposes that meeting basic psychological needs for competence, autonomy, and relatedness culminates in well-being. The Eudaimonic Activity Model (EAM; see Figure 2) proposes that need satisfaction mediates the relationship between doing well (eudaimonic motives and activities) and feeling well (subjective well-being). Our study will be measuring participants’ levels of PF, need satisfaction, and subjective well-being to test the associations proposed by this model.
