Before you begin your independent study, please review this package to make sure you have received the following items:
Dr. Carbonell believes that people who struggle with chronic anxiety have been “tricked”, by their physiology and their “common sense”, into getting caught up in a struggle that increasingly complicates and degrades their lives.
His method is to help people walk a different path, one that fosters recovery by disengaging from the constant “anti-anxiety” struggle which now maintains their present difficulties. Take this program and come away with effective strategies from Acceptance and Commitment.
Therapy, Paradoxical Therapy, Metacognitive Therapy, and traditional CBT in a unique and innovative way.

Blending humor, compassion, and acceptance with cognitive behavioral methods, Dr. Carbonell, a sought after presenter, has taught his unique treatment methods to more than 3,000 mental health professionals at workshops across the country. Dr. Carbonell is the “Coach” at www.anxietycoach.com , a popular self help site, and the author of Panic Attacks Workbook (Ulysses Press, 2004).
He was one of the first psychologists in the U.S. to develop a private practice devoted solely to the treatment of anxiety disorders, and continues to practice full time in Chicago today. He’s a frequent speaker at the annual conferences of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America. He has a unique blend of CBT, ACT, metacognitive Therapy and Paradoxical Therapy to offer people with anxiety disorders, and the professionals who treat them, and it’s his goal for you to leave armed with an approach, and numerous specific tools, that you can use the next day.
