Exposure Therapy for PTSD & Anxiety
With Shawn Carter, M.ADS., BCBA
Executive Director, Gateway Recovery Centre
Exposure therapy is a psychological treatment that was developed to help people confront their fears. When people are fearful of something, they tend to avoid the feared objects, activities or situations. Although this avoidance might help reduce feelings of fear in the short term, over the long term it can make the fear become even worse. In such situations, a psychologist might recommend a program of exposure therapy in order to help break the pattern of avoidance and fear. In this form of therapy, psychologists create a safe environment in which to “expose” individuals to the things they fear and avoid. The exposure to the feared objects, activities or situations in a safe environment helps reduce fear and decrease avoidance. Join Shawn Carter, Executive Director at Gateway Recovery Centre, on Thursday, November 3 between 12-1pm EST as he further explains exposure therapy as a treatment option for PTSD and anxiety.
