Description
This report analyzes and compares four of the most promising techniques used to date on treating phobias namely flooding, modeling and desensitization (both systematic and in vivo). These techniques are analyzed through five selected and thoroughly examined case studies. This report also analyzes the results obtained from experiments utilizing the abovementioned procedures in order to judge effectiveness. In order to be deemed effective, these processes need to be able to not only eradicate the fear response but also maintain participant safety and comfort in treatment and produce longevity, as to not result in redevelopment of the phobia.
