The GSU Psychology Clinic offers Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (“ACT”, said as one word) for adults with a range of clinical concerns under the supervision of Dr. Aki Masuda. ACT is a unique, empirically-based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness techniques, together with commitment and behavior change strategies, to enhance full-living. Full-living means contacting the present moment openly and at the same time choosing one’s actions wisely, not impulsively. ACT is often effective with individuals struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and body image concerns.
The GSU Psychology Clinic offers evidence-based assessment and treatment of anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, and related disorders in children and adolescents. Common concerns include excessive worry, discomfort in social situations, separation anxiety, specific fears/phobias, and compulsive or ritualized behavior. The treatment approach is cognitive-behavioral and has been supported by numerous, large-scale research studies. Supervision is provided by Dr. Nicole Caporino.
