The Successful Treatment of Specific Phobia in a College Counseling Center
Adler, Jonathan M.; Cook-Nobles, Robin
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v25 n1 p56-66 2011
Specific phobias are highly prevalent among college students and can be quite debilitating. However, students often do not present for treatment for phobias and, when they do, often do not receive effective treatment. This article will present a case study of the effective treatment of specific phobia using cognitive-behavioral therapy with an emphasis on in vivo exposure. It will provide a template for how to conduct this efficient and effective therapy and suggest several benefits of incorporating this treatment into the repertoire offered by a college counseling center.
