The Research Project

Are you seeing clients using ACT or Mindfulness-based interventions?

Clinical psychology researchers at the University of Rochester are looking for people to participate in a project developing an online service that uses a new scale (the MPFI; Rolffs, Rogge, & Wilson, 2016) to generate multidimensional psychological flexibility & inflexibility profiles for clients. You could receive up to $100 for participating and each of your clients you enroll could receive up to $80 (available to roughly the first 100 therapists and 300 clients to participate).
