Chapter 6 first teaches adolescents to increase awareness of their experiences more broadly, and then helps adolescents use the same strategies to increase awareness during emotionally evocative situations. Awareness training is an important step in the treatment process. This module will assist the adolescent in adopting a practice of present-moment awareness and nonjudgmental awareness in different situations and across varying triggers of increasing intensity. This may in turn eventually reduce attempts to avoid uncomfortable emotional experiences. The adolescent will use awareness strategies during generalized emotional exposure practice at the end of the module, and the therapist should identify and process any subtle avoidance behaviors observed with the client.
