Abstract
The one session treatment approach (Ost, 1989) incorporates cognitive behavioural techniques into a single 3-hour intensive session. This treatment approach has led the field in the development of more efficient and intensive approaches for treating childhood anxiety problems, and for childhood specific phobia is now considered a 'well established' treatment (Ollendick & Davis III, 2012). This review examines the clinical phenomenology of specific phobia in youth, provides a brief description of OST along with the evidence to support its efficacy, and provides suggestions for future research.
