Intensive Treatment of Specific Phobias in Children and Adolescents
Davis, Thompson E., III; Ollendick, Thomas H.; Ost, Lars-Goran
Cognitive and Behavioral Practice, v16 n3 p294-303 Aug 2009
One-session treatment (OST), a variant of cognitive-behavioral therapy, combines graduated in vivo exposure, participant modeling, reinforcement, psychoeducation, cognitive challenges, and skills training in an intensive treatment model. Treatment is maximized to one 3-hour session. In this paper, we review the application of OST for specific phobia in youth and highlight practical matters related to OST and its use in a clinical setting. We also briefly review results of treatment outcome studies and suggest future directions for clinical research and practice. We conclude that OST is an efficient and efficacious treatment.
