The term ‘phobia’ is derived from the Greek word ‘Phobos’, which means morbid fear or aversion. In medical terminology, phobia is a kind of anxiety disorder and it could have different triggers. Phobias are categorized into specific phobia, social phobia and Agoraphobia. While specific phobia is fear of a certain specific thing, like fear of heights or fear of water or certain animals, insects and the like, social phobia is when the affected person fears a certain kind of situation and is worried that others will judge them. Agoraphobia is the fear of a situation that makes the affected person feel that they cannot escape it. Different kinds of phobias need to be treated differently, depending on their trigger and the extent of the problem. Doctors and psychiatrists use extensive counseling, systematic desensitization, virtual reality technique, progressive relaxation, hypnotherapy and medications.
