In this book, the authors discuss new developments in the study of the psychology of fear. Topics include clinical-analogue studies investigating the renewal of fear; psychophysiological reactions and brain activity in phobic subjects; an experimental study investigating right-wing authoritarianism and the reduction of fear; and the extinction of fear-motivated responses used in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder and other fear-motivated learnings.
