Summary:
Martin M. Antony demonstrates cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques while treating a woman in her late 20s with obsessive-compulsive disorder. In this session, Antony primarily focuses on the behavior modification aspect of CBT that includes exposure to triggers and response inhibition. Antony ensures that the exposures are conducted in a supportive and planned manner while alerting the client that increasing the frequency and intensity of them will lead to greater results. He uses the Subjective Units of Distress Scale to gauge the client's level of anxiety during several exposures to triggers. Antony concludes the session by recommending further exposures as homework.
