Coulrophobia is the fear of clowns. It can cause intense anxiety or discomfort when an individual encounters a clown, or even just the idea or image of them. This fear is often present in children as well as adults in varying degrees.
The presence of clowns in various cultural contexts and entertainment spheres prompts an exploration into the extent of coulrophobia's influence on individuals. The Fear Of Clowns Questionnaire is an important tool for evaluating and measuring an individual's level of coulrophobia.
Based on extensive psychological research, this questionnaire assesses the impact of interacting with clowns in any way on one's behavior, cognition, threat detection and emotional responsiveness, providing useful insight into the reasons behind one's fears as well as cues for helpful, targeted interventions for treating coulrophobia.
