Phobia: When an irrational fear takes control: treating phobias: Behavioral therapy, hypnosis, flooding, and SSRIs

Description

For a person with a phobia, overcoming the fear--or at least learning how to resist its debilitating effects--can open the door to a fuller, freer life. This two-part series takes an unflinching look at the biological and psychological mechanics of terror, as determined patients seek to master their irrational fears through behavioral therapy, virtual reality, hypnosis, EMDR, and the controversial techniques of flooding and TFT. MRI scans, EEG tracing, and thermographic imaging enhance these compelling documentaries.
