Mindfulness Technologies: The ACT App

Exploring the potential of mobile technology to aid acceptance and mindfulness therapy outside of the clinic, this interdisciplinary investigation empowers youth suffering from anxiety and depression by collaborating with them design sound and imaged-based applications for mobile devices.  These applications enable youth to externalize their personal sources of anxiety in a manner that reflects strategies they have found successful during acceptance and mindfulness therapy.  Participants will be able to use the applications to practice acceptance and mindfulness therapy during a moment of anxiety outside of therapy; a fresh a creative use of mobile technology to aid a complex and difficult healing process.
