Specific Phobias

What are specific phobias?

Specific phobias are defined as intense, persistent, irrational fears of specific objects, situations, activities or people. This fear is often greater than the actual danger of the threat. Children and teenagers with specific phobias will actively avoid the object or situation they are afraid of to the point that it gets in the way in their lives.
