Step 3. Rapid recovery PRACTICE – Graduated Exposure

Graduated Exposure
Behavioural Experiments

When you lose your fear of obsessional thoughts

Your thinking will return to normal

To lose your fear you have to PROVE to yourself that the

thoughts in themselves CANNOT cause you any ACTUAL harm

and that it is only your reaction TO the thoughts

that is causing you any anxiety

To DO that you have to GRADUALLY face and

experience the thoughts (along with the feelings

and sensations they trigger) so that you

can practice with your new understanding and skills.
