Self-Injection Anxiety Counseling (SIAC)

     
 

Many people with MS are unable to self-inject their disease-modifying medications due to anxiety.
A 6-session program called "Self-Injection Anxiety Training," developed by David C. Mohr, PhD, and Darcy Cox, Psy.D. at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Behavioral Medicine Research Center (BMRC), has been shown to be effective in helping people overcome their fears and learn to self-inject.

The SIAC Patient Workbook and Counselor Manual can be downloaded in PDF format, as can information about the program's development and validation. The workbook and manual can also be requested from the PRC at healthprof_info@nmss.org. Additional information about SIAT and other MS research is available at the UCSF BMRC web site (www.ucsf.edu/bmrc).
