EXPOSURE THERAPY

EXPOSURE THERAPY

Exposure therapy is a confrontational type of PTSD therapy. The goal is to desensitize the victim to the upsetting memories and feelings that he or she may be facing because of the traumatic experience. Since irrational fear is a learned behavior, exposure therapists seek to have their patients “unlearn” the conditioned fear response, and instead take control over the feelings associated with the trauma. This is done by repeated discussions about the traumatic event; with each discussion, the memory will be less overwhelming and the patient will have an increasingly enhanced ability to keep his or her feelings under control.
