We took a walk around Samantha's neighborhood to work on her issues with strangers. We encountered a small child, one of her biggest triggers, wearing squeaky shoes! We were able to get within 20 yards with no overreaction from Samantha, which was great. We will continue this desensitization and counterconditioning plan in the coming weeks.
