Nostophobia is repugnance or dislike of the past, the antithesis of nostalgia.[1] Nostophobic reactions are often encouraged to reduce resistance to workplace or similar changes.[citation needed] The fear of returning to one's childhood home is nostophobia combined with its comorbidity ecophobia: fear of house.
