Exposure therapy has amassed a significant body of research and is widely appreciated as one of the most effective therapeutic treatments for anxiety spectrum disorders. Nevertheless, therapists often neglect to maximize this technique because they struggle with creating specific exposure exercises for clients' individual fears and phobias and because they are hesitant to suggest exposure exercises to anxious clients who may be resistant to facing their fears. The Clinician's Guide to Exposure Therapies for Anxiety Spectrum Disorders offers the solution - a detailed menu of specific exposure strategies for the most common fears and phobias clients experience. This book helps therapists introduce the concept of exposure therapy and integrate it with other evidence-based practices, such as cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy. It provides reproducible forms therapists can use to help clients make hierarchies of exposure. Along with exposure strategies, the book features guidance on using exposure therapy in general, including special sections on prolonged exposure therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder. A must-have resource for any clinician seeking to effectively treat anxiety disorders in their clients.
