We are used to think that fear is an emotion to be repressed and defeat but fear, warning us of the presence of a threat and spurring us to react, has always been a guarantor of our sur- vival. For human beings, therefore, it is natural, even healthy, feel fear, and it is normal for the little ones to talk about it. Unfortunately, it is true, however, that when it is experienced in an exaggerated way and out of a context of real danger can become a problem, such as in the case of phobias or panic attacks.

The purpose of this volume is to better define this emotional dimension and suggest antidotes, remedies, and good practices for a healthy experience of fear, in the belief that greater awareness of what fear and courage are and what they are for would allow to face more serenely the complexity of world we live in.
