Phobias

In today’s blog we are going to talk about phobias, which are defined as an excessive fear of an object or situation. While phobias seem to be a common thing that many people have, only around 8-10% of people are actually diagnosed with one! Interestingly enough, there are around 400 known phobias that one may have, but the good news is they are not very common and they can be treated! Let’s look at a couple interesting phobias before we begin:

Ablutophobia – A fear of bathing.

Arachibutyrophobia – A fear of peanut butter getting stuck to the roof of your mouth.

Nomophobia – A fear of not having your cell phone.

Turophobia – A fear of cheese.

In this blog, we will listen to an audio about getting treatment for a phobia of flutes! Let’s get started!

Now try the following exercises:
