Study Contact: Maddy Frumkin, (617) 726-3508,

Study Description: We are currently conducting a research study comparing three different programs designed to reduce stress and anxiety in the treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). This study involves having a formal psychiatric interview, filling out questionnaires, ECGs, saliva samples, a urine test for drugs of abuse, and study visits over 12 weeks. No medication is involved. Each study visit will take a few hours.

You may be eligible if:

  • You are currently suffering from GAD (worry a lot, anxious of nervous often, muscle tension, difficult sleeping, poor concentration)
  • You are over 18 years old
  • You do not currently practice mind-body techniques (e.g., yoga, meditation, Tai-Chi, etc.) or cognitive-behavioral therapy.
  • You are not currently in psychotherapy for generalized anxiety.


Qualified participants will be compensated $40 for each of the 4 clinician assessments across the duration of the study, for a total of $160 for participation.
