"Youthful Enthusiasm" help adults overcome fear of water

USING “YOUTHFUL ENTHUSIASM” TO HELP ADULTS OVERCOME THEIR FEAR OF WATER When helping adults overcome their fear of water, I believe that one of the most overlooked components of that process is something that can be subtle, even unrecognizable, yet plays an unmistakingly significant role in a positive outcome.
