Teaching 5-7-year old children with fear problems to cope with them is a substantial issue for many parents. The techniques that rapidly and effectively correct problematic child fears are essential for child psychologists. This study aims to reveal how to work effectively with children’s fears through short-term psychological support. A total of 90 students enrolled at various schools in Moscow between the ages of 5-7 participated to the study with a high number of fears. The study utilized the “Fear House” technique developed by Panfilova to determine the fears of children. The art therapy technique “Eliminating fears”, developed by Venger was also used to help children cope with their fears. The application indicates that there was a significant decrease in children’s fears.
