Humans are evolutionary wired to avoid potentially dangerous situations. Although such ability allows humans to cope with threatening circumstances, individuals may sometimes excessively avoid cues or situations even when a threatening outcome is highly unlikely. Angelos Krypotos provides insight into the psychological mechanisms that govern avoidance learning and describes how these insights can be relevant for clinical practice.
