This volume contains three parts. Part 1 is a literature review. This systematically reviews evidence for maintenance factors of specific phobias in adults. The maintenance factors are derived from cognitive-behavioural models. The review includes studies which demonstrate that the maintenance factor has a causal influence on phobic symptoms. Part 2 is an empirical paper. This paper describes an exploratory study of intrusive mental imagery in adults with a specific phobia of vomiting. Information about the presence and nature of imagery was derived using quantitative semi-structured interviews. Imagery data was compared against severity of phobia data. The study also includes a single case experiment which investigates the effectiveness of imagery rescripting for phobia of vomiting. Part 3 is a critical appraisal. This paper provides reflections on the research process and an expanded discussion of the findings.
