Susan M. Orsillo, PhD, is Professor of Psychology at Suffolk University in Boston, Massachusetts. Her current research focuses on the role of emotional response styles, most notably experiential avoidance, in maintaining psychological difficulties. In collaboration with her doctoral students in clinical psychology, she has developed a number of prevention and treatment programs that integrate acceptance and mindfulness with evidence-based behavioral approaches. Dr. Orsillo has published over 70 journal articles and book chapters, coedited two books, and coauthored two books.
 
Together, Drs. Roemer and Orsillo have developed an acceptance-based behavioral therapy for generalized anxiety disorder. They are currently examining its efficacy as well as mediators and moderators of change in a study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. Their self-help book The Mindful Way through Anxiety draws from their decade of research in this area to provide guidance to people struggling with anxiety.
