How to Control Your Fears and Phobias - Systematic Desensitization

Hear it Here - https://adbl.co/3XaytgD

Systematic desensitization therapy is a type of behavioral therapy used to treat things like anxiety, phobias, OCD, and PTSD.

The idea is that people can be conditioned to avoid or be repelled by a certain stimulus, in just the same way that Pavlov’s dogs were conditioned to salivate whenever the bell rang and signaled that food was coming.

But if these associations can be conditioned, the theory goes, that means they can also be deconditioned.

If you are merely exposing yourself to things that freak you out, you will only reinforce those pathways and become more effective at freaking out!
