      Bhavana Arya, Sandhya Verma, Rakesh Kumar, Ruchir Mishra
Abstract: Fear of public speaking is a highly prevalent condition that can adversely affect the social and occupational life of an individual. Cognitive Drill Therapy (CDT) is a new approach to the treatment of stimulus bound anxiety. CDT utilizes the basic tenets of classical conditioning, operant conditioning, cognitive appraisal and linguistics. This case demonstrates the role of cognitive drill therapy in the treatment of fear of public speaking. The planned application of CDT resulted in significant reduction in the fear of public speaking. Pre and post intervention scores showed a marked difference in the anxiety experienced by the subject. Based on the theories of Emotional Processing and Inhibitory learning, CDT is a highly potential candidate to be added to Exposure therapies
