“Mindfulness and Acceptance for Anxiety:  Integrating New CBT Techniques into Psychodynamic Therapy”
Presenter:  Lynn Mollick, Ph.D.


When treating anxiety, Cognitive Behavior Therapy no longer focuses on relaxation procedures and Ellis and Beck’s cognitive techniques. Contemporary CBT focuses instead on acceptance and mindfulness of anxiety and other emotional experiences.  During this workshop, Dr. Mollick will describe:

  • Mindfulness- and acceptance-focused CBT.
  • How mindfulness and acceptance techniques can be integrated into psychodynamic therapy to facilitate development of a good therapeutic relationship.
  • How these techniques can promote exploration of interpersonal relationships and resistance.

The presentation will include case illustrations, experiential exercises, and group discussion.


Lynn Mollick, Ph.D., received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Rutgers University, one of the first programs in the country to teach Cognitive Behavior Therapy. She began her career as a Supervising Psychologist at the Central West-chester Mental Health Service in White Plains, and later worked as Chief Psychologist at the Equitable Life Insurance Company in New York.  She moved to New Jersey in 1983 where she co-founded Cognitive Behavioral Psychologists of New Jersey with Dr. Milton Spett.  A few years later, Drs. Mollick and Spett also founded the New Jersey Association of Cognitive Behavior Therapists, an organization dedicated to providing cutting edge CBT education for mental health professionals.  In addition to seeing patients, Dr. Mollick runs a bi-weekly group for professionals who want to expand their knowledge and proficiency with CBT.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to describe:

  1.    The 3 goals of all CBT for anxiety.
  2.    Mindfulness and acceptance-focused CBT; and
  3.    How mindfulness and acceptance techniques can bring unacknowledged feelings and memories into awareness and facilitate exploration of transference, countertransference, resistance, and conflict.
