ACT online: Stress reduction for parents who have children with DD  

Parents with who have children with autism and other developmental disabilities (DD) face enormous psychological challenges. However, little attention has been paid to these needs. Parents of children with autism and other DD experience high levels of chronic stress and tend to feel responsible and blamed for their children's conditions. The proposed research will address this major problem by developing a stress reduction program based on Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT).
