Confrontation in Short-Term, Anxiety- Provoking Psychotherapy pdf free download. Confrontation is a therapeutic technique that is widely used in various kinds of psychiatric treatment. During desensitization therapy, for example, the therapist confronts the phobic patient repeatedly with the object which he fears. In snake phobia, first a snake is shown to the patient on film or video tape. This fear-provoking confrontation is repeated until the patient is ready for the next step, which involves the introduction of a toy snake. A child
playing with a live snake (nonpoisonous, of course) is then presented to the patient. When he is able to deal with a fear-producing situation adequately, a more anxiety-provoking task is presented to him until he, finally, is able to handle the snake all by himself.
