House of Agoraphobics

Show description

Following on from the highly successful House of Obsessive Compulsives, House of Agoraphobics follows three long-term sufferers through an intensive and emotional journey with Professor Paul Salkovskis, Clinical Director of the Maudsley Hospital Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma at London’s Institute of Psychiatry.

The team of therapists once again implement the unique, intensive 14-day experimental treatment plan pioneered last year, this time on three sufferers of Agoraphobia with Panic Disorder – a fear of being in situations where escaping would be difficult, including big open spaces busy outdoor locations, streets, traffic and transport which induces panic attacks.

All three will leave their homes for a fortnight, and move in together to undergo intense exposure and response therapy in the hope of curing them of their debilitating conditions once and for all.
