The purpose of the Claustrophobia Study is to examine the best way to administer strategies for reducing claustrophobic fear. Cognitive therapy involves evaluating the accuracy of your feared outcomes. Exposure therapy involves gradually confronting your fears in a controlled manner. We know that cognitive therapy and exposure therapy are effective strategies for reducing claustrophobic fear, whether used together or alone. However, no research has explored whether the way in which these strategies are combined makes a difference in how effective they are for reducing claustrophobic fear.
