The Laboratory for the Study of Anxiety Disorders (LSAD) was founded in 1988 by Professor Michael J. Telch, Ph.D.

The overall mission of our research is to increase scientific knowledge about the nature and treatment of anxiety-related disorders.

Based upon the assumption that all psychotherapies involve new learning, several of our recent clinical trials translate findings from basic research on the way the brain learns and changes to improve treatments for anxiety.

“Irrespective of their specific diagnosis, a patient’s idiosyncratic safety behaviors must be accurately assessed and then eliminated to maximize treatment of clinical anxiety.”   ❦
