Phobias: Living In Terror
Discovery Home and Health  |  June 18, 2010

Where do phobias come from? From traumatic events, genetic vulnerability or emotional conflicts? This show examines the phobia - the excessive and irrational fear of a situation that poses no real danger. They affect an estimated 20 million Americans and can invade people's thoughts, restrict their activities and lives. Millions never seek treatment and suffer needlessly. Experiments along with interviews with experts show how new scientific discoveries provide insight as to why some people develop phobias and others do not.
