Description

Specific Phobias are some of the most prevalent anxiety disorders. This book helps clients become active participants as they explores the nature of specific phobias including definitions, prevalence, and causes of phobias. They also learn proven strategies for overcoming phobias including exposure-based and cognitive techniques for reducing fear. This program describes treatment strategies for a variety of specific phobias. "The Client Workbook" is divided into three parts. The first part describes the principles necessary for understanding specific phobias. The second part describes the principles necessary for treating specific phobias. The third part provides detailed guidelines for overcoming particular types of specific phobias. Although written for the client, the program in the "Client Workbook" should be carried out under the supervision of a mental health professional, because many of the concepts and procedures are relatively complex. The most effective intervention requires an understanding of the principles underlying the treatment procedures and a person who can guide the client through the demands of treatment.show more
