Exposure Therapy for Anxiety: Principles and Practice
Guilford Press, Mar 14, 2011 - Psychology - 398 pages
Exposure therapy is the most effective psychological treatment for anxiety, yet many clinicians lack confidence in their ability to implement it effectively while keeping clients engaged. This indispensable book provides guidelines for conducting exposure-based interventions and overcoming common roadblocks. Drawing on cutting-edge theory and research, the authors walk clinicians through assessment and treatment planning and demonstrate a wealth of specific exposure exercises. Chapters are organized around common anxiety triggers that may cut across different diagnoses, making it easier to tailor treatment to each individual's needs. Reproducible handouts and forms can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
