Application of Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy on Management of Astraphobia: A Single Case Study
Background: The abnormal fear of thunder and lightning termed as astraphobia (ICD-10: F40.2) is a type of specific phobia in which an individual reflects fearful behaviour as well as physical symptoms with an underlying psychological conflict. Virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET) is an increasingly common treatment for anxiety and specific phobias. Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy help to improve prolonged exposure because it creates fictitious, safe, and controllable situations that can enhance emotional engagement and acceptance
