ACT for Anxiety Disorders—Our Book

This is a Web site for this book, with information on workshops, contact information for the authors, and additional information about the book and the ACT approach in general. Our intent is to make this Web site useful to you. Thus, we plan to include a section where you will be able to find audio and video training materials and additional clinical resources to help you improve the treatment of your anxious clients. We will also share some feedback and suggestions from readers that we think might be of interest and useful for other therapists. Most of the materials are available for everyone visiting the site. To access some of the advanced electronic training materials and clinical resources will require that you type in the following universal case-sensitive access code: ACTonAnxiety. A must see!

Center for Mindfulness in Medicine

This is the Web site for the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
