Fobia ketinggian/acrophobia tergolong sebagai fobia spesifik yang didefinisikan sebagai ketakutan terhadap ketinggian yang ekstrem. Acrophobia sering dihubungkan dengan penghindaran bermacam-macam situasi yang berhubungan dengan ketinggian misalnya, perjalanan dengan menggunakan pesawat terbang, menaiki tangga, menaiki lift, jembatan dan menghindari bekerja di gedung yang berlantai tinggi. Exposure based therapy merupakan salah satu terapi pilihan yang terbukti efektif selama beberapa dekade untuk menurunkan kecemasan, distress dan hendaya fungsional atau okupasional yang diakibatkan oleh penghindaran obyek atau situasi fobia.
