This chapter presents case examples to more fully illustrate how to implement exposure therapy with a variety of presenting problems. The case presentations in this chapter focus on the less commonly used and less intuitive methods of imaginal and interoceptive exposure. The cases demonstrate the application of exposure to obsessions and compulsions, general anxiety and worry, as well as panic. Each case example begins with a brief description of the case and then conceptualizes the case using the model presented previously in this book. The examples then describe family involvement, discuss the creation of a fear ladder, present a detailed exposure, and comment on the course of treatment. Each case illustrates a broader point related to the implementation of exposure, which is discussed last.
