Thirty-seven panic disorder patients were randomized to hypoventilation therapy (TX, n = 20) or waitlist control (WL, n = 17) (Meuret, Wilhelm, Ritz, & Roth, 2008). In a secondary analys...

An acceptance-based therapy would be particularly suitable for such women, as it encourages them to experience uncomfortable sensations and thoughts. The aim of this study was to pilot-test the feasibility and acceptability of a brief acceptance-based therapy for pregna...
