FINGER, Igor da Rosa  e  OLIVEIRA, Margareth da Silva. Predicting factors for the participation in an intensive psychological intervention for overweight and obese people. Aletheia [online]. 2015, n.47-48, pp. 122-135. ISSN 1413-0394.

The abandonment rate of these interventions continues very high. This study aims to evaluate which factors can predict the participation of overweight and obese people in an intensive psychosocial program of 8 hours in one day, that compares an intervention based on Commitment and Acceptance Therapy with a psychoeducational intervention. Method: This is a cross-sectional quantitative study in which 82 people (77 of them, women), with BMI 25 and higher and ages between 18 and 60 years, answered to a recruiting and confirmed participation. The instruments used were: DES, AAQ-II, AAQ-W, VLQ, CFQ-7, CFQ-BI, MEQ, BES, DASS - 21, sociodemographic questionnaire, weight and BMI. For the data analysis, it was conducted a multivariate binary logistic regression. Results: the variables with some degree of prediction in the adhesion to the intervention were the ones of behavior related to diet and physical activity, psychological flexibility and, more specifically, the psychological process of cognitive fusion.
