Description: A three year follow-up of 22 individuals suffering from DSM defined anxiety disorder who participated in a time-limited, physician-referred mindfulness meditation program showed maintenance of the significant stress and panic reduction that had previously been observed during an initial three month follow-up. Measures used were Hamilton and Beck Anxiety and Depression surveys. The results seem to indicate intense, time-limited mindfulness based interventions can be effective in the long term treatment of anxiety disorders. (Zach Rowinski 2005-03-04)
