Synopsis:

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.

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.
