We all have them; some are typical, such as being scared when you see a hairy spider, and others not so typical, such as being struck motionless by the sight of a clown. Phobias are fascinating. This guidebook provides essential information on phobias, but also serves as a historical survey, by providing information on the controversies surrounding its causes, and first-person narratives by people coping with phobias. Patients, family members, or caregivers explain the condition from their own experience. The symptoms, causes, treatments, and potential cures are explained in detail. Essential to anyone trying to learn about diseases and conditions, the alternative treatments are explored. Student researchers and readers will find this book easily accessible through its careful and conscientious editing and a thorough introduction to each essay.
