Executive Summary:

We created this course because there are few good psychological interventions for anxiety, phobias, and OCD, but exposure therapy and graded exposure are one such. The problem is that it is such a ‘common sense’ procedure that many people – professionals included – don't take the care to learn how to use it properly and so it doesn’t work well for them. This leads to disappointment for the client, and a likely exacerbation of the problem. And that’s why we created this short course: to show professionals how to use exposure therapy – and graded exposure in particular - effectively and well. 

The course covers how to apply exposure therapy – especially graded exposure – and what conditions it works well for. It also covers the pitfalls to avoid, and the conditions it usually doesn’t work well for. Those who attend the course receive a certificate to verify the fact, and accreditation that allows them access to any resources associated with the course.

What's covered on the course?

The course covers all you need to be able to use graded exposure effectively, namely:
