Chapter 12 of Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders: Therapist Guide focuses on Emotion Exposures. These are exercises designed specifically to provoke strong emotional responses so that patients can put into practice the skills they have developed thus far in therapy. Following a brief introduction to the concept of Emotion Exposures and the rationale for engaging in these exercises, therapists assist patients to gradually confront internal and external stimuli that produce intense emotional reactions while helping them modify their responses to those emotions. Therapists will help patients incorporate the skills learned in therapy (present-focused awareness, nonjudgment, cognitive reappraisal) into their exposure practice and address any emotion avoidance (or other behaviors) that may impede treatment progress.
