In this 5-minute clip, Mary comes for a 2-session treatment for her claustrophobia and fear of flying. [See previous clip: “Strategic Practice of Homework”.] Those who experience claustrophobia focus on two issues: suffocation and restriction of movement. Here, about 30 minutes into the first session, Dr. Wilson uses interoceptive (inside the body) exposure (plus a little humor) to help Mary learn that the primary cause of her panic attacks during flights (as well as tunnels, parking garages, and elevators), is from her interpretation of her sensations, not her sensations themselves.

About the DVD. Decades of research have shown that exposure therapy is by far the most effective way to get long-lasting results in the treatment of specific phobias, but most therapists have never had a chance to see exposure therapy in action, let alone be trained in it. Here, prominent anxiety expert Reid Wilson shows you how it’s done, as he conducts two remarkable sessions with a woman suffering from claustrophobia.

Mary loves to travel, but dreads airplanes. In fact, any enclosed space where she feels trapped triggers her fear of suffocation, so she spends much of her time avoiding parking structures, elevators, and coping with panic attacks when avoidance is impossible. With conviction and humor, Wilson engages Mary in two transformational sessions, based on the paradoxical principle that moving towards that which she fears holds the key to her freedom.

Wilson leads Mary through several experiments which give her the opportunity to face her fears of both suffocation and restriction. From breathing with a nose plug on, to sliding a pillow case over her head and sealing it with packing tape, and finally to climbing into a large cardboard box, Mary courageously confronts layers of terror, gradually shifting her point of view from “I can’t handle this” to “I want this fear and I can handle it.” With Wilson’s constant support and encouragement, Mary makes an incredible amount of progress in only two sessions, demonstrating how powerful these tools really are.

In this 6-minute clip, Mary comes for a 2-session treatment for her claustrophobia and fear of flying. Later today she will take a flight. As session 2 opens, Mary details her exposure practice after session 1. She provides an excellent example of a client spontaneously taking ownership of a self-help strategy (versus a client only complying with the therapist’s instructions).

In this 6 minute video, Dr. Wilson talks about the possibility of and advantages of perceiving treatment as a mental game.

Course Description: Anxiety Disorders are the most common mental disorder, affecting nearly 1 in 5 adults each year. They take over peoples' lives by causing them to develop seemingly irrational rules in order to cope. Five anxiety disorders -phobias, panic, social anxiety, generalized anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)- control people by generating an absolute standard for certainty and comfort. This workshop will examine the common psychological aspects of this mental game, along with specific manifestations for each disorder. Using cognitive-behavioral principles, therapists will learn a strategic approach on how to help their patients find the courage and motivation to challenge their old beliefs and attitudes and rid themselves of this debilitating fear by confronting it head-on. Practical methods will be presented and demonstrated to enable patients to ignore the content of their obsessive worries and to explore the feeling of uncertainty rather than fleeing from it. After the presentation of general concepts, the workshop will focus on the treatment of panic disorder and OCD. For panic disorder, participants will learn how to divide and conquer: to interrupt anticipatory anxiety and then to manage physical symptoms using cognitive strategies, paradox, pattern disruption, exposure and interoceptive exposure, and peel away the ever-present "safety crutches." For OCD patients, participants will learn that persuading patients to adopt a new frame of reference is the therapist's primary task. This persuasive strategy, begun in the first session, will frame the entire treatment protocol. Concrete examples of interventions for both obsessions and rituals will be offered.
