Article: Stuck In An Elevator
This article titled, “Stuck in an Elevator”, is written by Fredric Neuman, a therapist with many patients who have been stuck in elevators and “Their anxiety level spiked, lessened, then spiked again.” Most of his patients were elevator phobics and were trapped overnight in their worst nightmare during the New York blackout a few years ago. They suffered "Claustrophobia (the fear of enclosed spaces, such as elevators)," lead to panic attacks and can cause discomfort and effects such as "psychological fear of losing control."He discusses treatments of panic disorders such as simply remaining in the phobic situation until the attack settles and slowly goes away. By allowing the attack to run its course a person will eventually experience them enough for their fear to disappear completely.
