Here’s How Anxiety Disorder Looks:
We can help your teenager in her battle with Anxiety Disorder, which is sometimes called Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Full-blown attacks can feel paralyzing to those who are suffering this chronic condition, which is distinguished by an incapacitating intensity of fear. It may be identified by panic attacks, specific phobias provoked by particular situations, and may include social anxiety disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It can appear with physical symptoms (such as a racing pulse, profuse sweating, sleep problems) or be simply mental and emotional. Typically, a diagnosis typically requires that the anxiety have lasted for six months, at a minimum.
New Lifehouse – Offering a Unique Approach for Your Daughter With Anxiety Disorder.
It is essential that Anxiety Disorder be diagnosed and treated, keeping the anxiety level from building to the point of clinical depression. Parents often find it hard to comprehend the underlying causes that elicit such responses in their child, but with early diagnosis and professional help, Anxiety Disorder is generally treated with fairly high rates of success. Your girl’s treatment approach might include one or more different therapies. Cognitive behavioral therapy is quite effective treatment for high-level anxiety. That approach focuses on recognizing thought patterns that lead to anxiety, and then blocking damaging behaviors by coaching her 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 handle.
