Fright Night - Group Therapy

“Fright Night” therapy is available to all of our current clients who wish to participate with others in order to practice exposure tasks. Under the supervision of a skilled clinician, clients can come in for an evening session to “practice being afraid” with other clients.  Whether they have a public speaking phobia, contamination obsessions, health anxiety or agoraphobia, our clients can learn and practice the principles of successful exposure together in a supportive setting. For more details talk to your therapist. Cost: $15/ client -- donated to a local mental health initiative including the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) and Alberta OCD Foundation (AOCDF).

The Centre for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy's FRIGHT NIGHT was featured in the October 2016 edition of Avenue Edmonton Magazine. The article tells a story of five brave young women who have OCD and participated in our July 2016 FRIGHT NIGHT. The story highlights the struggles Tess (name has been changed) has experienced battling her OCD and phobic avoidance of knives, driving, and germs. By attending FRIGHT NIGHT, Tess confronts her fears in a safe and supportive environment. The article was written by Caroline Barlott with illustrations by Lee Nielsen.
