Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 26, 2016
Emetophobia is the fear of vomiting, seeing others vomiting, or experiencing the effects of vomiting. Surprisingly, millions of children suffer from this little known and understood fear, a fear that is often times misdiagnosed as the fear of attending school, the fear of being sick, feeling panic, and the fear of eating certain foods. The fear is often times debilitating and children who suffer from it miss many days of schools or end up having to withdrawal from school all together. These same children will refuse to attend sporting and social events, and seeks constant reassurance that they are not getting sick. The fear becomes all-consuming for both child and caregiver.
The Emetophobia Supplement Program is designed to be used with the award-winning audio treatment program Turnaround: Turning Fear Into Freedom. Turnaround speaks directly to the child through a highly entertaining audio adventure story and teaches kids what they need to overcome their fears. The Emetophobia program addresses more specifically the fear of vomiting and together the programs effectively reduce, and in most cases eliminate the child’s fears so that they can resume school and child activities once more.
The Emetophobia Supplement Program:
- Is a 60-minute audio tutorial for parents and PDF packet with all the materials needed to help the child over this fear.
- Educates both parent and child in what Emetophobia is and how to best treat it.
- Provides parents with a step-by-step guide in how to walk their child through the material.
- The PDF packet includes all the materials needed to facilitate the exposure therapy techniques utilized to overcome the fear.
