"In this training video, anxiety disorder expert Reid Wilson demonstrates Exposure Therapy in two live sessions with a woman suffering from claustrophobia. Using the paradoxical principle that moving towards her fears is the key to her freedom, Wilson leads Mary through several experiments that give her the opportunity to face her fears of both suffocation and restriction, including breathing with a nose plug on; sliding a pillowcase over her head and sealing it with packing tape; and climbing into a large cardboard box. You will learn the core concepts of Wilson's approach to treating phobias; understand how to conduct a highly focused assessment; and identify tools for facilitating habituation through exposure therapy techniques. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." - Supplied by publisher.
