The aim of this diary is to evaluate a graded exposure exercise by answering a number of questions. First you describe which trigger in the fear hierarchy you faced and whether you were able to resist the urge to carry out safety and/or avoidance behaviour. You then describe your level of anxiety, what went well and what didn’t go well. Finally, you can reflect on what you would like to do differently in your next graded exposure exercise. By evaluating your exercises in a diary, you gain valuable insights to keep facing your fear.
