Patient discussion about sociology

Q. i suffer from fear of heights ... is there any sociological way to treat it and make it less effective?

A. Fear of heights is a very common specific phobia, in psychiatric terms. Nowadays the best way of therapy is called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT),in which a person learns how to deal with the phobia through cognitive thinking in steps. It is a very recommended method in psychology/ psychiatry these days.
