Here below you can find a list of literature and resources on the topic of Emetophobia and other conditions correlated with it. As you might be aware, there are not many resources out there on this topic, therefore I did my best to include the ones I found and which I thought could be of good use to sufferers or family members. In case you are aware of other interesting resources, please feel free to contact me and I'll be very happy to add them to the list. The list will be updated regularly with new and hopefully useful resources.
