Creative Applications of Exposure Therapy and Habitat Reversal Therapy

Presenter: Joelle Beecher-McGovern

Cognitive-behavioral therapy has strong empirical support for a number of psychiatric disorders among children and adolescents. It includes several treatment modalities, including exposure therapy for pediatric anxiety and habit reversal training for tic disorders and trichotillomania. Despite the strong evidence for these treatments, they can be difficult for children and families to implement for a number of reasons, including logistical barriers, motivation issues, and difficulties with follow-through in out-of-session work. In this presentation, Dr. Joelle Beecher McGovern will briefly describe these treatment modalities and discuss some of the practical issues associated with implementing these treatments with children and adolescents. Dr. McGovern will then discuss some creative applications of these strategies to enhance these treatments for children and adolescents. Examples of areas that will be covered include: 1) how technology can be used to supplement treatment (e.g., using the smart phone to monitor progress or supplement exposures), 2) how to strengthen reward plans to improvement motivation, and 3) creative ways to enhance exposures with young children (e.g., through the use of games and puppets).
