Talking About Phobias and Obsessions

Synopsis
Dr John Alderdice explores phobias and obsessions. Looks at the difference between those that need outside help and those who don’t; at the problems they create and what it is like for the sufferer and the family. He discusses the forms of treatment that are available and the role and functions, not only of professional people, but also of family, friends and interested volunteers.
