In this article, we mentioned the therapeutic strategies we deem appropriate to treat fear of heights. We compared several studies that used various techniques and refer to our clinical experience and research. We considered also the new treatments that use virtual reality environments for the treatment of acrophobia. Currently, virtual reality (VR) is used by governments, industry, academia and individual researchers, by encouraging a multiplicity of possible products and applications in various areas. These systems also have numerous applications in the field of psychology, for example in the evaluation and treatment of eating disorders and various phobias such as fear of spiders, fear of flying and claustrophobia. We conclude that, until the present moment, the practice reinforced Leitenberg (1976) is the best-studied treatment for acrophobia. The main purpose of treatment of phobias is the decrease of avoidance of feared situation or stimulus, the molding of behavior appropriate approach. The therapist provides the client with a gradual exposure to the target threatening and reinforces successive improvements in the clients' ability to interact with the target stimulus. The duration of exposure may be based on length of time or a number of presentations practices.
