Chapter 11 of Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders: Therapist Guide focuses on interoceptive exposure, or exposure to physical sensations that are associated with (and can sometimes trigger) intense emotions. The exercises described in the UP workbook are designed to assist patients in gaining further awareness of physical sensations that are part of an emotional reaction. Further, these exercises, and continued exposures focused on physical sensations, are expected to help patients learn to tolerate and think differently about the sensations and provide an opportunity to break the conditioned association between the sensations and strong emotions such as fear, anxiety, and sadness.
