Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP) Therapy is a type of Cognitive behavioral Therapy (CBT). It is often used to help individuals with OCD and related conditions. With ERP Therapy, you are exposed to situations or objects that cause a trigger and work towards reducing resulting compulsive or ritualistic behaviors. Similar to Exposure Therapy, you work with a therapist to identify a hierarchy of situations you can be exposed to over time. You start with the least anxiety-provoking situation and work towards exposure to the highest anxiety-provoking situation. When you are exposed to these experiences, you aim to reduce compulsive and ritualistic behaviors and gradually learn to tolerate the discomfort associated with exposure to the feared stimuli.

Exposure Therapy is a type of Cognitive behavioral Therapy (CBT) intended to help overcome fears and anxieties. To do this, you are gradually exposed to the feared object or situation in a safe and controlled environment. Together with the therapist, you will determine a gradual hierarchy of the feared situations or objects that you work through over time. It is commonly used for anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and PTSD. However, it may be used in other situations. Exposure Therapy can help reduce the intensity of anxiety, improve emotional regulation, and ultimately lead to greater self-esteem.

With this awareness, the focus is on reshaping unconscious thoughts and behaviors to move toward personal growth, understanding of oneself, and self-empowerment.
