Efficacy of EMDR: Case study of a child with a choking phobia
Certain dysfunctional behaviors at early ages are normal phenomena in childhood and mild and moderate fears are part of normal development. Typically, at age 7-8 months children first become anxious when separated from their mothers or when facing strangers. Later, children (aged two to four) become fearful of animals and social situations. Usually, these fears are transitory and can be regarded as adaptive and protective responses. Changes in the nature of childhood fears are related to cognitive development and their perception of their physical and social environment (Emmelkamp & Wittchen 2009). [Excerpt]
