Transcript of Copy of Anatidaephobia

The vast majority of cases of Anatidaephobia are self-diagnosed. The individual realizes that their fear of being watched by a duck is irrational and is severely interfering with their ability to function on a daily basis.

The anatidaephobic person may then discuss their fears with their doctor. Typically the doctor will not assign a diagnosis of Anatidaephobia based on that initial discussion. More routinely, after ruling out any physical reasons for the phobia, the doctor will refer the individual to a mental health professional for further evaluation and assessment.
Symptoms How is
anatidaephobia treated? Final Boss! Citations First off,
what causes
anatidaephobia? Perhaps the individual was
intensely frightened by some species of water fowl. Geese and swans are relatively well known for their aggressive tendencies and perhaps the anatidaephobic person was actually bitten or flapped at. Of course, the Far Side comics did little to minimize the fear of being watched by a duck. When the fear that a duck is watching becomes so intense as to disrupt an individual's daily functioning, there are a number of ways to treat Anatidaephobia. These can include:
•Talking to the primary physician who can refer the person to a therapist who specifically treats phobias.
•Traditional "talk" therapy that will assist the person to identify and control their fear.
•Self-help techniques.
•Support groups with other people coping with this phobia.
•Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or Desensitization Therapy.
•Exposure Therapy.
•Relaxation techniques such as deep breathing or meditation.
•In the most extreme cases of Anatidaephobia, anti-anxiety medication can be prescribed.
