Recent studies have found that versions of the AAQ
that are tailored to problem areas better capture experiential avoidance specific to the problem behavior better than the AAQ
alone (e.g., Houghton et al.
What does the Acceptance and Action Questionnaire (AAQ

Dado que existe una adaptacion al espanol del AAQ

By injecting AAQ
into their eyes, researchers reported that light sensitivity in the eyes had been restored, with the mice's pupils contracting in bright light.
binds to ion channels in retina cells and alters the flow of ions in response to light, mimicking how normal rods and cone cells react to light and activate neurons.
In spite of promising data, some have expressed concern about perceived shortcomings of the AAQ
and the limitations of self-report measures in general (for a review, see Chawla & Ostafin, 2007).
The Acceptance and Action Questionnaire (AAQ

The chemical, called AAQ
