In addition, many clinicians hold negative or false beliefs about this treatment. This presentation addresses myths associated with exposure therapy, outlines ethical considerations therapists and patients should be aware of when conducting or engaging in this treatment and offers suggestions for the ethical use of this treatment.

  3. Describe strategies to conduct ethical exposures in five areas of ethics
