Chapter 9 outlines the seventh SAM program session. This session continues a focus on transforming the meaning of somatic sensations of anxiety and on ending the fear-of-fear cycle. A new element of treatment is the integration of interoceptive exposure with in vivo exposure practice. Emphasis in this and subsequent sessions is on helping patients learn comfort with feared sensations, while also eliminating other elements of the fear-of-fear cycle (e.g., the tense-up response to symptoms).
