Exposure - Face Your Fears 1.0
MoodTools
Features: • Enter your own personal fear • Create a fear hierarchy•Complete exposure tasks while live updating your anxietylevelsEffective against: • Phobias (snakes, spiders, heights,flying, etc.)• Social anxiety disorder• Post-traumatic stressdisorder• Panic disorder• Generalized anxiety disorder•Obsessive-compulsive disorders Overview:Exposure therapy is one ofpsychology's greatest, most effective treatment tools that havebeen discovered over the past few decades. A key technique inbehavior therapy for anxiety, exposure therapy involves graduallyexposing someone to their feared object, situation, or task withoutany danger in order to overcome their anxiety. This app enablespeople to go through exposure therapy.Before exposure, users firstcreate a fear hierarchy - a list of activities that induce anxietyranked from highest to lowest. Then, they work through theactivities in the fear hierarchy, starting with the leastanxiety-inducing activity and working their way up.Warning: Wehighly recommend using this app under the guidance of a mentalhealth professional. Detailed Guide: Many people with phobiasrecognize their fear as illogical, but their mind is still afraidnonetheless. This is because the primal fear centers of our mindact subconsciously whenever it spots anything it thinks isdangerous (such as lions or snakes) in order to escape immediately.However, in today's modern society when we don't have to worryabout predators eating us, our minds can often trigger false alarmsto things that aren't actually dangerous. The fear center of ourmind learns through association, not logic. If you were afraid ofpigeons, every time you see a pigeon your fear would rise. Thenwhen you run away, your mind becomes even more convinced that apigeon is dangerous because you ran away, your fear levels dropped,and you were safe. This cycle repeats itself, sustaining theillogical fear until maybe you avoid going to certain placesbecause there might be pigeons there. To break this fear, the mindneeds to learn to un-associate pigeons with fear. Luckily, the mindcan only sustain a fear response for so long. So if you go to wherepigeons are and just stay there instead of running away, eventuallyyour mind will learn that pigeons are not actually dangerous. Themost important principle is to make sure that the fear leavesbefore you do. This app helps you break the fear. First, add whatyou are afraid of and then construct a list of activities that willinduce various levels of anxiety. Then, you can start exposingyourself by doing these activities starting from what gives you theleast amount of anxiety. During the exposure process, you can trackyour anxiety levels by updating it continuously, and finish when itfalls to 20/100 or lower. As you work your away through theactivities, your fear should continue to fall! Warning: We highlyrecommend using this app under the guidance of a mental healthprofessional. If you leave the activity before your anxiety falls,then this will actually reinforce your fear instead of lowering it.Try starting with the easiest activity first. Going straight to achallenging task might actually increase your fear. It is verydifficult to stay in a situation when your entire body is screamingat you to leave, especially if there is no person there coaxing youto stay and wait.
