Transcript of Phobias
-The fear of being buried alive
The first written reference was in the works of an ancient physician, Hippocrates.
Celsus, a roman doctor, created the term "phobia."
About 100 years ago phobias were ignored or misunderstood as some kind of craziness.
In 1947 phobias became a separate diagnostic category.
In the 1960's phobias were divided into three categories: Agoraphobia, social phobia and specific phobia.

In 1960 social phobia was separated from other phobias.
Up until 1985, research on phobias was lacking leading some to refer to it as the "neglected anxiety disorder."
From 1995 to present day, four medications have been found to treat social phobias.
A phobia is an irrational fear that causes extreme panic, distress, and anxiety. The phobia can be of an animal, person, place, or situation. Phobias are most common kind of anxiety disorder. Over 50 million people in the USA live with a phobia. They can affect people regardless of age, sex, and social status.
In the early 1900s, psychiatrists used terms like social phobia and phobia neurosis to refer to extremely shy people.
This was very common around the 18th and 19th centuries.
It is known that George Washington and Edgar Allen Po both had Taphophobia.
As a result of this fear, many safety coffins were invented to help people stay alive and/or alert others so they could be rescued.
It is rumor that the phrase "saved by the bell" came from certain safety coffins made with a bell.
