Claustrophobia and Anxiety in Children

Claustrophobia in Children

My 8 year old is generally an anxious child, which we manage through basic mindful strategies.

Over the years he has experienced phases of very specific anxieties and phobias (darkness, certain foods, being alone in a room, etc), but these have always been self-limiting and have ultimately passed.

However, as these phases have passed, one specific phobia has always remained –claustrophobia.
