Despite the demonstrated efficacy of cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) for social anxiety disorder (SAD), many individuals do not respond to treatment or demonstrate residual symptoms and impairment posttreatment. Preliminary evidence indicates that acceptance-based approaches (e.g., acceptance and commitment therapy; ACT) can be helpful for a variety of disorders and emphasize exposure-based strategies and processes. Nineteen individuals diagnosed with SAD participated in a 12-week program integrating exposure therapy and ACT. Results revealed no changes across a 4-week baseline control period. From pretreatment to follow-up, significant improvements occurred in social anxiety symptoms and quality of life, yielding large effect size gains. Significant changes also were found in ACT-consistent process measures, and earlier changes in experiential avoidance predicted later changes in symptom severity. Results suggest the acceptability and potential efficacy of ACT for SAD and highlight the need for future research examining both the efficacy and mechanisms of change of acceptance-based programs for SAD.

    The developed material for this ‘course’ was just the final exam. It was annoying not to find the correct answer indicated when a question was not answered correctly. Other providers include this feature. It wasted much time and energy. For this reason, I will not be using Foxy for my CEs moving forward. Too many other choices out there.

      I’m sorry you didn’t have a good experience with this module. Your review seems a little unfair, however, for two reasons: 1) We make it very clear on our product pages what our article quiz modules are: you read an article and take a quiz on it. We think it is valuable to encourage BCBAs to directly contact the research literature and then pass a quiz for comprehension. You may not like that format, but it should not have been a surprise to you. We also do not refer to this as a “course” anywhere on our website. 2) You *are* able to see the correct answers on the quiz: simply click the “Show solution” button at the end of the quiz. Best of luck to you with your future CEs.
