Exposure Therapy

Do you have fear that disrupts your life? Exposure Therapy is an effective strategy for a variety of anxiety problems, including PTSD, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and Phobias.  The core of most exposure therapy strategies consists of reducing anxiety by overcoming avoidance, and learning new “safety” ideas.

Learning to be Afraid:  Anxiety often is the result of learning to become upset by situations, triggers, or memories. As the anxiety takes hold, the feelings become a source of stress in addition to the situations, triggers or memories–you become afraid of the anxiety emotions. As a result, the anxiety becomes even more rooted as you avoid not only the triggers or memories, but you work hard to escape the feelings of anxiety. In other words, you reward your avoidance by reducing your exposure to both situations and your own feelings. 

How Anxiety Thinking Starts: Eventually you develop not only avoidance, but ideas that make both triggers and feelings seem very risky. Thinking, and sometimes images in your mind, become prone to frightening material. These are often called distorted thinking–and in anxiety, these distorted thoughts usually tell you that a horrible catastrophe is certain to occur, and you won’t be able to do anything about it.

Parenting Children with ADHD

In 2016, Dr. Bill Pelham and his team put out a great paper. In it, he compared teaching parents behavioral skills or using medicine for ADHD children. What he found was the order you first use the parenting skills and medicine matters. 

Parenting benefits children with ADHD when it includes direct behavioral strategies. For example, parents must be more careful about how they give attention to ADHD children. Attention, even negative attention, can reward the very behaviors parents want to stop. Strategies like focusing on positive behavioral expectations, and rewarding them with praise and attention, can benefit children with ADHD quite a bit.
