New Directions in Implementing Exposure and Response Prevention: An Inhibitory Learning Perspective

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this clinically-oriented workshop we will cover new strategies derived from an “inhibitory learning approach.” We will discuss using fear tolerance to teach patients to manage their anxiety regardless
of habituation, as well as combining exposure media during ERP to deepen extinction learning. We will demonstrate how to help patients consolidate learning using linguistic processing, and present alternatives to the traditional hierarchy to enhance outcomes. Finally, we will explain the importance of expanding intervals between sessions and practicing exposure in multiple contexts.
