Alexandra J. Werntz, MA, is a graduate student in clinical psychology at the University of Virginia. Her research focuses on both implicit and explicit thoughts and attitudes about different forms of treatment, and how those thoughts interact to predict how patients actually use treatment and take care of their own mental and physical health. She is also interested in dissemination of mental health treatment information, as well as investigating novel forms of anxiety treatments.
Grants and Funding: We proudly support the research and programs of 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations and institutions such as: the Anxiety Disorders program of the Jane & Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior at the University of California, Los Angeles; the Pacific Institute of Medical Research; the International Foundation for Research and Education on Depression (iFred); and SchoolsForHope.org, an iFred educational project. Working with these partners enables Anxiety.org to extend its commitment to its mission. All the donations received, as well as 100% of Anxiety.org revenue in 2019, will be contributed to build, develop, and further the understanding, investigation, discovery, and treatment of the full spectrum of anxiety and related disorders.
