Agraphobia

Agraphobia

Agraphobia (also contreltophobia) is the abnormal fear of sexual abuse, a particular case of specific phobia.

Sufferers of agraphobia have usually had a past experience linking emotional trauma with sexual abuse. Such experiences do not have to happen to the sufferer: watching sexual abuse occur (even in movies or on television) can act as a trigger to the condition.

The sympthoms and treatment are the same as for any specific phobia.
