I got into the immediate study. I'm excited. I went to Amazon to read a bit more about the workbook. I like the blog posts from the author, he does seem genuin & thoughtful in his writing. I'm getting pretty excited to receive the workbook now.

I've never heard of ACT either. Cognitive, but not ACT. I'll be checking this out. A study not involving drugs ... now that is something I may try.

Sounded very interesting. I signed up. What could it hurt? It says you can quit at any time. Personally I feel this obligation to complete the study will help keep me motivated to work through the book. I like that a workbook is willing to survey itself to see if its effects long-term.

So I stumbled across this study being done, and if you participate you may be eligible for a free copy of the The Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety.

Taken from the website:

This is an invitation to participate in an exciting new research project that we are launching world wide over the internet. The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of a new self-help workbook for people who are suffering from anxiety and see their anxiety as a significant problem in their lives. The workbook, The Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety, is based on a revolutionary new approach to psychological health and wellness called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (or ACT, said as one word).

If you'd like to participate in this study, just follow the links on this page to find out more about the study itself, what it involves, and whether you are eligible.

To be Eligible for the Study, you should be:
1. at least 18 years of age;
2. be able to read and write in English at an 8th grade level or higher;
3. have regular access to a computer and the Internet;
4. Suffer or struggle with anxiety in some way;
5. Not have read the Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety; and,
6. be willing to agree to the study procedures.

If this sounds like you, then please explore this site and consider signing-up.

It sounds a lot like a book I'm working through called 'The agoraphobia workbook : a comprehensive program to end your fear of symptom attacks' /
by Pollard, C. Alec.
See if your library has it.
It is hard working through these feelings, false beliefs BUT I'm finding when I do I do better the next time. I'm actually driving a few more places now.

My doctor recently suggested I see a therapist who is trained in ACT therapy, and I was wondering if anyone else has tried this. Was it helpful?
Has anyone else even heard of it before?
