In behavior therapy and hypnosis, the so-called flodding can be used. This is the counterpart of systematic desensitization. Here, the client is not confronted with the fear-inducing stimulus step by step, but is flooded with it. The goal is to confront the fearful situation and endure it until the negative emotions disappear more and more. However, this type of confrontation is not suitable for every client. Moreover, it requires days, if not weeks, of preparation. It is also not about torturing the client and showing him what he can endure. Rather, the goal is to give the affected person a different self-perception.
