This chapter discusses specific fears and phobias, and provides an informational and theoretical base from which will be expanded into more complex anxiety disorders in later chapters. Specific phobias will be considered within a three-systems perspective, including behavioral, physiological, and cognitive components of the fear response. Unique features of some of the specific phobias will be discussed, and empirically supported treatment procedures will be described.
