PHOBIAS AND ADDICTIONS PAPER 2 Phobias can be developed through classical conditioning. Classical conditioning this type of learning includes an introduction of a new stimulus, to create a reaction that a pervious stimulus created unconsciously. “ This learning process involves three different factors, First, an original stimulus, called the unconditioned stimulus, second, an unconscious reaction to the original stimulus, the unconditioned response, and third, a new stimulus to be paired with the original, called first the neutral stimulus and becoming the conditioned stimulus” (Kowalski & Western, 2011) (Makayla Heisler,2014),. One way a phobia can be developed by classical conditioning, is by repeat exposure; for example, exposing a person to the a small enclosed room with no existing phobia of claustrophobia, make the windows no working or a fear based option that the person is being restricted. As long as the actions are consistent, the phobia will stay with the person. Take another phobia for example, Emetophobia is the fear of vomiting, it is an extreme fear of vomiting, with the repeated times of almost chocking or waking up puking and embarrassment could cause a traumatic like state for the person suffering from the phobia.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
