The History Of Phobias

Relating the history of phobias is much more about recognizing the fact that ‘phobias’ (irrational, extreme and constant fear of a particular thing or situation) have affected men at all times.

Contrary to the popular view that phobias are a consequence of industrialization, in-depth analysis of phobias establish that phobias generally arise from a negative experience with a subject relating to the phobia and have always existed.

This view, however, was not formed in a day. Extensive studies of the history of phobias prove that the conception and the causal factors of phobias have undergone sea changes.

Back in the heydays of philosophy when medicine was not a very organized curative discipline, people were often detected with such fretting disorders.

It lay upon the philosophers to unwind the complications and to unearth the exact causes behind.

One among the earliest interpretations (the Pythagorean interpretation) was that the phobias were ‘reminiscences’ from former lives (and was essentially believed to have a religious association).

The second half of the nineteenth century, however, saw a massive change in this sphere. Roundabout this time psychiatry began to flourish as a fully developed medical discipline.

These psychiatry professionals uncovered the real causes behind these spectacular mental disorders, putting aside all misconceptions and delusions associated with phobias.

This phase of the history of phobias is not only interesting but also exceptionally significant. It is in this phase that having identified the causal factors behind the different phobias, the psychiatrists for the first time attempted cures for them.

The year 1966 happens to be an important year in the history of phobias. It was in this year that the first phobia organization in the world, ‘The Open Door’, was founded.

Now the organization has been re-named PAX – a Latin word, which means peace. PAX stands for panic attacks & anxiety disorders and ensures the peace of mind for all.
