Abstract [en]

Exposure is being employed more frequently and more experience and data are now available for consideration in clinical settings. In this presentation I will focus on clinical aspects of applying exposure with particular emphasis on the choice of exposure delivery methods e.g. in-vivo versus introceptive exposure. The current evidence will serve as a guide for helping the clinican to make choices as well as to determine what outcomes might be expected. Current research demonstrates that not all patients respond equally well to exposure techniques. Moreover, contrary to the model, some data even suggest that in-vivo exposure is of little help for those who have the most fear and distress. Possible solutions to such problems will be provided and discussion will focus on meeting these challenges in the clinic. New aspects of applying exposure will also be sketched such as determining what exactly the patient may be fearful of (e.g. pain, injury, work) and new variations of exposure such as home-based behavioral experiments. Finally, the need, as well as some directions, for new research will be underscored.
