Our contest is over. We had many correct and almost correct responses. The winners are based on number correct and speed of answering. We had some postings on the blog and others to our emails. Again, recall that there were numerous “correct” possibilities, but we used the “correct” responses that lived in our heads. Unfair? To be sure. Here are the “correct” answers:

CT Cognitive Therapy
OCD Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
ABCT Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies
ERP Exposure and Response Prevention
EXP Exposure and Response Prevention
(okay, this was a tricky one and we decided in this one case to be unexpectedly “fair” and give credit for Experimental Psychology)

ACT Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
DBT Dialectical Behavior Therapy
FGU Fielding Graduate University (how did this one get in here?)
BT Behavior Therapy
IPT Interpersonal Therapy
PD Personality Disorder
PDD Pervasive Developmental Disorder
ADD Attention Deficit Disorder (if you want to follow the DSM IV, it should be ADHD)
MDD Major Depressive Disorder
BPD Borderline Personality Disorder
AN Anorexia Nervosa
PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
ASD Autism Spectrum Disorder
ODD Oppositional Defiant Disorder
APA American Psychological Disorder (oops, that should have been American Psychological “Association”)

If you are one of our winners, please email us ( anxietyocd@psychcentral.com ) with your street address and we will send you the book you asked for. Here are the winners:

2. “croak”

Thanks to all who participated and especially to Bonnie for bringing us some laughs. And Laurie S., if you’d like a book, please email us with your address–we went crazy and declared a sixth winner!
