Exposure therapies are based on the premise that fears are acquired through associative learning (classical or operant conditioning). Commonly used behavior therapies are flooding and systematic desensitization in patients of phobia. However, in our index case, we could not introduce any of these modes of therapy due to patient-limited factors; thus, we introduced modified exposure and response prevention in which we tried to overcome the limitations of commonly used behavioral therapy techniques. She underwent 12 sessions and showed good and quick results.
