Lovitz spent years trying a combination of traditional talk therapy and self-help books--nothing seemed to reduce her anxiety. In desperation, she tried the most radical approach available: exposure therapy. With an experienced therapist's guidance, she systematically exposed herself to the very thing she had avoided all her life. Within weeks she showed signs of improvement and within months she had overcome emetophobia. The history of exposure therapy for treating emetophobes is covered.
