    It's called flooding- exposing someone to their worst fear in the hope they realise it isn't so bad.

    Obviously, it doesn't really work- the best thing to do is build it up gradually, making sure the person is happy with the smaller aspects e.g. the word chicken and build it up.

    Very much so :yes:
    I remember they showed us a video in Psychology of someone getting over an acute fear of feathers and birds, by gradually being okay with a feather in the room, then a metre away, then in her hand etc etc

    This is such an intelligent answer. I will hug you for it :hugs:

    I just found the video really sickening, because people have fears of all kinds of things, but unless it's heights or spiders, it seems it's always looked down upon.

    I had a fear of dogs when I was younger...thankfully I've grown out of it through a gradual process of my sister's friend having a pet puppy that has grown into a dog
