The Science Behind DARE

The DARE app is an evidence based training program to help people overcome anxiety, panic attacks, worry, and insomnia. It is rooted in MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress reduction), MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy) and ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) which are widely-used and empirically-supported therapeutic approaches for overcoming anxiety. In their essence MBSR, MBCT and ACT are psychological interventions that have at their core the practice of mindfulness, an accepting way of relating to anxiety.
