10. Sounds – Kids

The previous steps of animation and video had sound effects so this step isn’t entirely new. However, variety and repetition are important to overcome the phobia so here are additional auditory exposures.

First is a link to a website with throwing up sound effects. They are all relatively brief (less than half a minute for most) and there is a great deal of variety. The page doesn’t have any hierarchy, so there isn’t a way to put them in order of increasing challenge other than the length of the clip. At this point in the process, listening to them somewhat randomly is beneficial anyway.

This video has two video clips that repeat over and over. The videos are not in sync with the sounds. The primary part of this exposure is the sounds. There are 35 minutes of sounds and you will likely need to break that into smaller time increments.

Next step is interoceptive exposures
