Emetophobia treatment

About Login

The EmetStudy online treatment program for emetophobia is no longer taking volunteer applicants for the university research study. A brief consumer summary of the reseach results from the EmetStudy program will be made available on this site January 2014.

A detailed and technical summary of the program is expected to be published in early 2014. A free online CBT treatment for emetophobia (fear of vomiting) will be made available at www.emetophobe.com in January 2014. This treatment requires that you complete this treatment program with the assistance of a licenced mental health professional as no other therapeutic support will be provided.

The emetophobe.com program is not a research study. It is a variant of the EmetStudy program and consequently the treatment outcomes may be different.

The program is currently undergoing change to support the therapist assisted model. The fear of vomiting CBT program will be free to use.
