IMAGINAL EXPOSURE

Involves revisiting the traumatic experience in one’s imagination and describing it out loud during therapy sessions.

 

Imaginal exposure to the traumatic memory is very effective in reducing trauma- related symptoms and helping to gain new perspective about what happened before, during, and after the traumatic events

IN VIVO EXPOSURE

In vivo means confronting avoided situations “in real life.” Clients are asked to gradually approach situations that they have been avoiding because they remind them of the trauma.

 

In vivo exposure has been found to be very effective in reducing excessive fears and avoidance after trauma.
