Chapter 11 details the structure of the remaining sessions of the therapy program. These sessions will perform exposures in order to help participants overcome anxiety by facing their fears. The situation for the first exposure is constructed, performed, and processed, using subjectie units of distress (SUDs) to measure discomfort. As participants become accustomed to exposure exercises, the exposures will need to provoke more and more anxiety in order for more advanced cognitive-restructuring skills to be used.
