Therapist-assisted exposure and Self-exposure
Therapist-assisted exposure and Self-exposure (client-directed exposure instructions) are the technique of Behavioural therapy based upon the principles of classical conditioning.
You're gradually exposed to the object or situation you're afraid of and shown that it won't harm you. You're also helped to develop techniques for dealing with anxiety and panic.
The aim is to decrease a person's anxious and fearful reactions such as emotions, thoughts, or physical sensations, through repeated exposures to anxiety-producing material.
Variations in the delivery of exposure treatment: self-exposure; therapist-assisted exposure; group exposure; and exposure with response prevention.
Exposure treatment is recommended for the treatment of a variety of anxiety disorders, and substance-related disorders. This can be useful for people with a phobia. Counselling and Psychotherapy may be provided via Skype and FaceTime in the comfort of your home, office or any place of your choice.
