Exposure Hierarchy
Exposure Hierarchy
Exposure hierarchies are a basic CBT tool for the treatment of anxiety. Use the hierarchy to gradually introduce clients to feared stimuli. Begin by creating a list of anxiety-producing situations and identifying the severity of anxiety that they produce. Clients will eventually be exposed to these situations, beginning with the least anxiety-producing situations and slowly moving to the most anxiety-producing situations.

This worksheet provides a template for clients to begin identifying and rating their anxiety-producing situations.

Use this worksheet to introduce clients to their triggers, thoughts, and emotions related to anxiety.
