Treatment of Toxiphobia
Treatment for accident phobia is in a process of continual development and refinement. Initial cognitive therapy is needed, aimed at helping the person to realise that he is a survivor, and that there is no reason to suppose that an accident that has happened once will be repeated. Therapy using the person's imagination, and the use of video-taped material may be useful.
Accident phobia is atypical in that it is closely linked with post-traumatic stress disorder but hast as its main elements, phobic fear and avoidance.
