Children can be helped to cope with fears before they become serious problems. When therapy is needed, two of the most effective treatments for fear reduction are counter-conditioning and modeling. In counterconditioning a calm, relaxation, or coping response is substituted for the fear response by way of classical conditioning procedures, in which the feared object is gradually paired with pleasant or neutral events. Therapeutic modeling is a procedure in which the child observes other people in progressively more active or direct encounters with the feared object.
