- Rate them for levels of anxiety they produce. Then order them from least feared to most This is called a ‘FEAR HIERARCHY
- Plan and Practice Graduated Exposure to the first situation on your list DAILY (if possible) until the situation causes a minimal amount of anxiety.
- Then move on the the next situation on your Fear Hierarchy
