What is Anxiety Disorder?
Anxiety Disorder (sometimes called Generalized Anxiety Disorder) can be seen as just mental and emotional, or perhaps include physical symptoms (i.e.: sleeping difficulty, tremendous sweating, rapid pulse rate). We can help your child who is struggling with the chronic condition of Anxiety Disorder, which is marked by a debilitating level of fear, often accompanied by panic attacks; phobias can be provoked by particular things or situations, and may include social anxiety disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Full-blown attacks can feel paralyzing to those who are suffering.
Ozark Trails Academy – Here to Help your Teen with Anxiety Disorder
Getting an early diagnosis and care for Anxiety Disorder is essential, in order to keep the anxiety from escalating to the point of clinical depression, even leading to self-medicating with drugs, alcohol or other damaging behaviors.
There might be a combination of therapies that make up your teen’s treatment approach. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the more beneficial ones for high-level anxiety. That therapeutic approach focuses on pointing out thought patterns that can lead to anxiety, and then blocking the damaging behaviors by training for new responses to those triggering events.
Some children benefit from medication to help in dealing with anxiety, although others find the side effects too difficult to tolerate.
It is quite difficult for some parents to comprehend the original causes that trigger these responses but early diagnosis and professional help generally allows for Anxiety Disorder to be treated with fairly high rates of success.
