ACT Treatment Outlines for Anxiety and Depression (Forman et al., 2007 effectiveness study)
This page includes treatment outlines that were used in the Forman and colleagues (2007) effectiveness study comparing ACT and CT for anxiety and depression.
Please note (From Sue Orsillo): The research manual referenced in the Anxiety Outline attached below is no longer distributed since the publication of the book Mindfulness and Acceptance-based Behavioral Therapies in Practice. The book is intended to serve as a "clinical manual". The research protocol was an in-house protocol that states which questionnaires should be handed out in each session for the study, etc. That manual assumes the reader was trained by, and is supervised by, us. It is not written in a way that is easily useable by others.
