This webinar has the following two broad aims. First, this webinar will cover the inhibitory learning model, and how it is distinct from the former fear activation model of exposure therapy. Included in this coverage will be how the inhibitory learning approach has greater appeal to clinicians. The second aim is to demonstrate how these different approaches within the inhibitory learning model may be applied to anxiety related clinical problems. This latter aim will be covered through illustrative case examples.
