Creating a MAP - Part 2

Sessions 4-6: Behavioral Tools Part 1, Including Physiological/Feeling Tools 

These tools are designed to teach you how to increase a sense of calm and relaxation in your body, and to reduce or eliminate unwanted physiological arousal or anxiety. In addition, you will learn how to make an anxiety hierarchy, also called a fear ladder, that you will later “climb” as part of the exposure portion of your personal MAP.

Objectives:  

To help further your understanding about how anxiety presents in the body, and to learn how to decrease unwanted physical signs of anxiety by applying various relaxation tools. If you choose a specific relaxation tool you like, you do not need to learn other relaxation tools. Stick with what you pick! The second objective is to develop a fear ladder, which will serve as an important item on your road map as you learn a variety of skills using this program.
