Chapter 8 outlines the sixth SAM program session. This session continues a focus on transforming the meaning of somatic sensations of anxiety and ending the fear-of-fear cycle. Cognitive restructuring is completed in the context of interoceptive exposure, with the goal of helping patients end anxiogenic responses to symptoms. These skills are also applied to benzodiazepine withdrawal sensations, with review of the benzodiazepine flu model. Home practice of regular symptom inductions with interoceptive exposure is the most important homework.
