Abstract [en]

Claustrophobia is huge problem which affects a lot of people in their everyday life, not to mention the financial and scientific difficulties with prematurely terminated MRI-sessions, due to claustrophobia. In this essay there will be a further introduction of phobias in general and also a deeper presentation of claustrophobia in order to reach a better understanding of the nature of this disorder and how it affect people’s daily life compared to the effect of a single claustrophobic reaction, when it is caused by the experience of a confined space. The objective of this essay is to investigate several treatment options, to find the most effective way of treating the condition in an attempt to diminish the personal and societal issues.
