What are phobic disorders?
Phobic disorders are intense, persistent, and recurrent fears of certain objects (such as snakes, spiders, or blood) or situations (like heights, speaking in front of a group, and public places). These things may trigger a panic attack. Social phobia and agoraphobia are examples of phobic disorders.
