Values, taste perception and psychological blind spots ». Psychopharmaparenting. Neuroanthropology has found a highly amusing video clip from the satirical US comedy show The Colbert Report on the increasing use of psychiatric drugs in children, something he dubs ‘psychopharmaparenting’. Colbert riffs on 2006 article from The New York Times that reported a five-fold increase in children being prescribed antipsychotics. These drugs are typically not prescribed because a child is experiencing psychosis for reasons that no-one is entirely sure of, children only rarely become psychotic but because of behavioural problems. One antipsychotic drug risperidone has been approved in some countries for children with autism who are aggressive, self-injure or have severe tantrums, but the concern is that these sorts of drugs are being used more widely to simply pacif...

Nissan recently announced it will be adding an innovative bodystyle to its Murano line-up: a two-door soft-top it calls the CrossCabrio. It will retain the Murano’s drivetrain, including all-wheel-drive availability so potentially a vehicle for all seasons. Compete used a combination of survey and clickstream to determine some early consumer perceptions of the vehicle and the environment in which it will play. One way to measure the impact of adding the new bodystyle is through changes in cross-shop results. Compete charted the extent to which Murano shoppers also shopped what could be seen as like vehicles over the past year. Among vehicles shown, Murano shoppers cross-shopped the Ford Edge the most. Edge is also the freshest model, redone for MY 2010. More recently, Murano natur...

People go to great lengths to conceal bad odors or enhance pleasant ones. For example, a store shelf will reveal a myriad of deodorants while upscale name brand perfumes may be “designed to capture the essence of a garden on the Nile”. In fact, celebrities are capitalizing by adding their names to the bottle of perfume. An NPR news report cites rapper 50 Cent, as selling the “smell of success” in a bottle. The implication of these developments is the importance of others noticing the “smell of success” or the scent of “a garden on the Nile” when near yo...

In 1958 he published 'The Psychology of Interpersonal Relations', which expanded upon his creations of balance theory and attribution theory. Heider published two important articles in 1944 that pioneered the concepts of social perception and causal attribution: "Social perception and phenomenal causality," and, with co-author Marianne Simmel, "An experimental study of apparent behavior." Subsequently, Heider would publish little for the next 14 years. In his book, Heider presented a wide-ranging analysis of the conceptual framework and the psychological processes that undergird human social perception. 3 In 'The Psychology of Interpersonal Relations,' Heider argued that social perception follows many of the same rules of physical object perception, and that the organization found in object perception is also found in social perception.

When it comes to dropping money on nice sticks we tend to buy something that we will define as worth it. If Opus X s came in 33 gauge mini cigars with a price point to match his bigger brothers many cigar aficionados would be weary of purchasing them in lieu of buying bigger ones so they last longer- even if they may enjoy them less. So even if spending 10$ on a 20 minute smoke is too much for you to handle I am here to bring you a short selection of what I think are good small cigars that you can enjoy in the winter months without wincing- or during any other season for that matter. But first, why small cigars. If well made they provide just as good taste and mouth feel as a ful...

The First Drug that Could Ease Social Withdrawal in Autism By Maia Szalavitz @maiasz Sept. An experimental drug showed promising results in treating the key symptom of social withdrawal in people with Fragile X syndrome, the most common known inherited cause of autism with intellectual disability, according to a recent clinical trial. The new study, published in Science Translational Medicine, hints that arbaclofen could be the first drug to treat symptoms of Fragile X and other autism spectrum disorders, and even other conditions involving social avoidance. In previous studies of mice that are missing the FMR1 gene and show autistic symptoms like repetitive behavior and social avoidance, arbaclofen has been able to treat these problem...

Is the School Required to Provide Social Skills Training. 05/07/12 by Wrightslaw. My daughter with autism needs help with social skills. She gets 90 minutes of social skills counseling a month. I think she needs to learn “hands on” in class, lunch, or recess, not in the “office.”. Is the school required to provide social skills training? Would this be considered a related service. Here’s an easy to read description about social skills. Social skill is not a “service” but a functional skill necessary for daily living activities. Learn what the IDEA, the federal regulations, and the Commentary say about Present Levels of Functional Performance and IEP goals for functional skills.

Topics Arts Humanities Business, Law, Society Campus Community Science Health World Environment Videos Photos Search. Sociability may depend upon brain cells generated in adolescence. Mice become profoundly anti-social when the creation of new brain cells is interrupted in adolescence, a surprising finding that may help researchers understand schizophrenia and other mental disorders, Yale researchers report. The Yale team decided to explore the function of these new brain cells in mice of different ages. However, adult mice that had neurogenesis blocked during adolescence showed no interest in exploring other adult mice and even evaded attempts made by other mice to engage in social behavior. “These mice acted like they did not recognize other mice as mice,” Kaffman said. Blocking adult neurogenesis had no effect on social behavior, suggesting t...

DIY Brainless Robots Exhibit Collective Behavior. By Tessel Renzenbrink on March 19, 2013 Posted in: technology Tags: BristleBots, mechanical intelligence, robots, swarm behavior, swarm intelligence, swarm robotics. We’ve all seen the amazing capabilities of flocks of birds and schools of fish to move seemingly as one. A lot of research is going into figuring out how swarm behavior works in order to mimic nature’s capabilities in swarm robotics. The ability of an individual agent to participate in collective behavior is often linked to cognition and social interaction implying that swarmbots require computational power and a sensor to function. But now scientists of Harvard university have demonstrated that brainless robots self-organize into coherent collective motion. The robots used in the experiment are BristleBots Bbots. These are very simple robots anyone can build for $5 from a toothbrush, a pager motor and a battery. When the brush head is pressed to the ground, the angled bristles give it forwar...

*  Farm Social Groupings
... Social Groupings within farm animals The social behaviour of farm animals is an important aspect of their sentience. Farm animals in natural conditions have quite complex social lives and social conventions. Living in groups requires awareness and understanding of the behaviour of others, and the ability to manage social interactions. Animal behaviour scientists have studied and compared the social lives of farm animals in natural, semi-natural and intensive farming conditions. In spite of thousands of years of domestic use, and decades of intensive breeding and farming, experts agree that the basic behaviour patterns and motivation of farm animals has changed little compared to their wild ancestors. Farmed pigs and chickens can revert to wild behaviour without difficulty. Cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens naturally live in herds or flocks. Many commercial farming methods cause social problems by joining unnaturally large numbers of animals together, changing or splitting up groups and mixing them with ot...

*  The ASMR Experiment: ASMR and social grooming
... The ASMR Experiment. ASMR and social grooming. In previous posts I described a theory of ASMR check out the ASMR theory tag on the right side of this page ; my conclusion is that ASMR is primarly drived by triggers' precision, which leads us to a state of physical and mental stillness : a condition whose importance is often ignored in the West, but widely recognized by traditional cultures. Now it's time to look at a phenomenon which can sometimes lead to ASMR: grooming. Note: linking ASMR to biology may sound strange, as I previously supported a theory which explains this phenomenon in terms of acoustics and brain waves. Social grooming. Grooming is - according to etologists - the way members of some animal species take care of each other, primarly for igienic purposes; in some species, however, grooming becomes an important social activity. The first example is massage; even in this case the ASMR effect is not directly connected to the task, and it only takes place when a massage is "tingle-oriented" b...

Obese adults are admitted to the hospital more frequently and for more days than adults who are normal weight, finds a new study that looks at how being obese leads to a need for more health care services. The study also finds that duration of obesity—how long an adult has been obese—has a direct impact on length of hospitalization. “A somewhat surprising result in our study was the fact that the length of time a person has been obese makes a much bigger impact than how severe the obesity actually is.” The study appears in the December issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, a peer-reviewed scientific publication of the American Sociological Association.

Friends' support can help cancer patients. Friends' support can help cancer patients. Ask questions, but stay positive. Of course, relationships are affected during a disease as devastating as breast cancer, but we have some control over whether this effect is negative or positive. Even though you may not know what to say in a given moment or what to do in a given situation, experts remind us the relationship that counts is with the person, not with the illness. Breast cancer is one of the most commonly found types of cancer. A woman's concept of breast cancer may color all her interactions, making it difficult to relate normally. According to studies, attitude can affect treatment and have real consequences in terms of well-being and survival. Certainly the most important thing anyone can do to support a friend or relative with breast cancer is to be there while she begins to navigate the grueling course of treatment, recovery and ongoing lifestyle adjustments. Each woman's ability to deal with cancer differ...

Online contributes to the diversity of social networks. Some years ago there was interest in the possibility of what was known as ‘cyber-balkanisation’ – the expectation that online activity would create silos of communities of interest at the expense of diversity of networks; and perhaps that local communities based on face-to-face contact might atrophy as a direct consequence. I even wrote an article for the New Statesman about it, it must have been at least ten years ago. Now here ’s research to confirm that social networks are not less diverse when mediated by online, and that online use makes a ‘positive and substantive total contribution’ to network diversity and hence to the social capital that is accessible through personal networks. This is the most recent output from Keith Hampton and his colleagues based on the data collected for the Pew Internet and American Life Project which has grabbed our attention a couple of times in the past, here and here. The argument goes something like this....

Social Network Theory and Physician Prescribing Behavior. March 23rd, 2011. Sources: MIT Technology Rev., WSJ Health Blog Subjects: Providers, Social media. Tweet. Several years ago, scientists led by Harvard’s Nicholas Christakis showed how happiness and obesity can spread through social networks. The team showed for example, that when certain people gained weight, the chances increased that others in their social network would also gain weight. Similar analyses have mapped-out the impact of social networks on influenza outbreaks and cigarette smoking. Now, Christakis has teamed-up with Larry Miller to create MedNetworks, a company that uses the same network mapping methods to identify physicians that most strongly influence their colleagues when it comes to prescribing drugs. If their work proves successful, they will surely find plenty of drug makers who will pay for their insights. The Boston-based start-up relies on medical claims data for its mapping studies. It claims to be able to track growth in t...

If you re not familiar with the way many of the social networks and websites represented in this video work, then you re probably going to be more confused than amused. But, if you are familiar, I m pretty sure you ll be thinking this is pretty clever. It s nearly the end of October and I ve only posted once this month. Practically unheard of. Yes, I ve been busy at work and have really struggled trying to find time to write. I ve started posts, but find myself paralysed at the keyboard, knowing that if I m going to do the post justice then I need to invest a couple of hours into its construction and I just don t have that time available. So I start, then stop, and for the first time ever I have drafts sitting in my dashboard, taunting ...

For the big players in the space, February. Facebook certainly had more ups than downs in 2007, but can the site continue its rapid growth into 2008. For the big players in the space, February represented a slight decrease in traffic, but the year- over-year growth rates seem to indicate that social networking as an industry has yet to peak. The table below shows the top social networks in February 2008, ranked by monthly visits. Myspace was down slightly from February 2007 in terms of total US visits. Facebook visits fell slightly from January 2008 to February 2008, but over the year the site has grown by over 75%. Niche markets are still...

(1/1365) Loud, sad or bad: young people's perceptions of peer groups and smoking.

This paper suggests that most 13 year olds and many 11 year olds have a clear and detailed grasp of their own social map, recognize the pecking order which is established amongst their peers and are aware of the different levels of risk-taking behaviour, including smoking, adopted by different peer groups in their school year. Thirty six 11 year olds and 40 13 year olds took part in the study. Their remarkably consistent views about which pupils adopt or reject smoking are closely related to their perceptions of their social map. Their accounts differentiate top girls, top boys, middle pupils, low-status pupils, trouble-makers and loners, associating smoking behaviour consistently with three of the five groups--the top girls, the low-status pupils and the trouble makers. Top boys, although sharing many of the characteristics of top girls, have an added protection factor--their keen interest in football and physical fitness. From their descriptions, it is apparent that different groups of pupils smoke for different reasons which are related to pecking order and group membership. The implications of these young people's views for health education programmes to prevent smoking and other risk-taking behaviours are far reaching.  (+info)

(2/1365) Building peace from scratch: some theoretical and technological aspects.

A peace-building process is based on activity, acceptance, understanding of political reality, communication, and empowerment. Acceptance means accepting everybody as he or she is and let each know it. This is at the heart of peace work, it is the prerequisite for effective communication, and includes accepting other even in cases of severe disagreement. Peace work requires both an understanding of political reality and the expression of one's own political opinion. Acceptance and the expression of political opinion are not at variance but complementary. Combining acceptance and understanding of the political context provides hope for real communication in which messages are both sent and received, with appreciation and interest. Empowerment implies overcoming of the feeling of powerlessness, often present in conflict by all sides and in all social groups. It includes recovery of self-respect and respect for others. Education and economic independence are important facets of the empowerment concept. Essential principles of peace-building process are responsibility, solidarity, cooperation, and nonviolence. Responsibility encompasses caring for human rights, the suffering of others, and for consequences of our own intended and unintended actions. Solidarity allows learning through listening and understanding. Even with the best intentions on both sides, cooperation may be difficult and painful. Nonviolence is a way of life.  (+info)

(3/1365) Effects of perceived patient demand on prescribing anti-infective drugs.

BACKGROUND: Although patient demand is frequently cited by physicians as a reason for inappropriate prescribing, the phenomenon has not been adequately studied. The objectives of this study were to determine the prevalence of perceived patient demand in physician-patient encounters; to identify characteristics of the patient, physician and prescribing situation that are associated with perceived demand; and to determine the influence of perceived demand on physicians' prescribing behaviour. METHODS: An observational study using 2 survey approaches was conducted in February and March 1996. Over a 2-day period 20 family physicians in the Toronto area completed a brief questionnaire for each patient encounter related to suspected infectious disease. Physicians were later asked in an interview to select and describe 1 or 2 incidents from these encounters during which perceived patient demand influenced their prescribing (critical incident technique). RESULTS: Perceived patient demand was reported in 124 (48%) of the 260 physician-patient encounters; however, in almost 80% of these encounters physicians did not think that the demand had much influence on their decision to prescribe an anti-infective. When clinical need was uncertain, 28 (82%) of 34 patients seeking an anti-infective were prescribed one, and physicians reported that they were influenced either "moderately" or "quite a bit" by perceived patient demand in over 50% of these cases. Of the 35 critical prescribing incidents identified during the interviews, anti-infectives were prescribed in 17 (49%); the reasons for prescribing in these situations were categorized. INTERPRETATION: This study provides preliminary data on the prevalence and influence of perceived patient demand in prescribing anti-infectives. Patient demand had more influence on prescribing when physicians were uncertain of the need for an anti-infective.  (+info)

(4/1365) Dispelling the stigma of schizophrenia: II. The impact of information on dangerousness.

This study addressed a relatively neglected topic in schizophrenia: identifying methods to reduce stigma directed toward individuals with this disorder. The study investigated whether presentation of information describing the association between violent behavior and schizophrenia could affect subjects' impressions of the dangerousness of both a target person with schizophrenia and individuals with mental illness in general. Subjects with and without previous contact with individuals with a mental illness were administered one of four "information sheets" with varying information about schizophrenia and its association with violent behavior. Subjects then read a brief vignette of a male or female target individual with schizophrenia. Results showed that subjects who reported previous contact with individuals with a mental illness rated the male target individual and individuals with mental illness in general as less dangerous than did subjects without previous contact. Subjects who received information summarizing the prevalence rates of violent behavior among individuals with schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders (e.g., substance abuse) rated individuals with a mental illness as less dangerous than did subjects who did not receive this information. Implications of the findings for public education are discussed.  (+info)

(5/1365) Treatment-resistant schizophrenia and staff rejection.

This study examined the relationship between characteristics of patients suffering from treatment-refractory schizophrenia and staff rejection and criticism. Subjects were 30 inpatients with treatment-resistant schizophrenia and the 29 staff members treating them. Measures included assessment of the patients' symptoms and aggression risk profile using the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) and assessment of staff attitudes toward these patients using the Patient Rejection Scale (PRS). Nursing staff completed the Nurses' Observation Scale for Inpatient Evaluation (NOSIE). PRS ratings did not correlate with patients' demographic and treatment characteristics. Significant correlations existed, however, between increased staff rejection and higher scores for PANSS cognitive factor and NOSIE manifest psychosis factor. Negative symptoms, although preponderant in the patient sample, were not significant predictors of staff rejection on the PRS. Older nursing staff tended to view patients as more irritable and manifestly psychotic. These findings suggest that disorganized behavior and impaired cognition dysfunction areas are more likely to be associated with high levels of rejection among staff working with treatment-resistant schizophrenia patients. Incorporation of the relatively new concepts of cognitive dysfunction and treatment resistance in staff training programs and multidisciplinary team reviews may greatly benefit schizophrenia patients and the staff treating them.  (+info)

(6/1365) Effects of the label "schizophrenia" on causal attributions of violence.

We investigated the relation between the label of "schizophrenia" and causal attributions of violence. Undergraduates read 1 of 10 scenarios in which two variables were manipulated: a psychiatric label and environmental stress. The scenario described an employee who acted violently toward his boss. Subjects made causal attributions for the employee's behavior by completing an adapted version of the Causal Dimension Scale II. Subjects also completed a questionnaire designed to explore several issues concerning the effects of the schizophrenia label on perceptions of behavior. Contrary to the primary hypothesis, the schizophrenia label did not lead subjects to make significantly more personality causal attributions for violent behavior. With increasing environmental stress, subjects did make significantly fewer personality attributions. A follow-up study using practicing clinicians as subjects yielded similar findings. The results of these studies are discussed in light of perceived stereotypes of persons with schizophrenia and conceptual issues in attribution research.  (+info)

(7/1365) Developmental theory for a cognitive enhancement therapy of schizophrenia.

Recent findings on psychosocial and neurodevelopmental anomalies in schizophrenia patients indicate that deficits related to social cognition-the ability to act wisely in social interactions-may be important constraints on complete social and vocational recovery. Social cognition is acquired over many decades and appears to be partially independent of formal IQ and neuropsychological problems. It invites a more developmental approach to the rehabilitation of schizophrenia, one that we call Cognitive Enhancement Therapy (CET). CET draws on an emerging literature that implicates both pre- and postonset neurodevelopmental difficulties, as well as a complementary literature on diffuse neuropsychological impairments that supports the notion of a neurodevelopmental insult. We analyzed evidence for an associated developmental basis to social cognitive impairment in the context of a model that addressed both the acquisition of interpersonal wisdom and the adaptive process that might follow developmental failures. A contemporary model of human cognition is then used to identify the metacognitive functions that characterize the developmental acquisition of normal cognition and, by inference, the associated difficulties of many patients with schizophrenia. A rehabilitation strategy for schizophrenia, designed to facilitate the metacognitive transition from prepubertal to young adult social cognition, would thus emphasize developmental learning experiences during the remediation of social cognitive deficits. A "gistful" appraisal of interpersonal behavior and novel social contexts best reflects the theoretical intent of this new intervention.  (+info)

(8/1365) Practice principles of cognitive enhancement therapy for schizophrenia.

Cognitive Enhancement Therapy (CET) is a developmental approach to the rehabilitation of schizophrenia patients that attempts to facilitate an abstracting and "gistful" social cognition as a compensatory alternative to the more demanding and controlled cognitive strategies that often characterize schizophrenia as well as much of its treatment. Selected cognitive processes that developmentally underlie the capacity to acquire adult social cognition have been operationalized in the form of relevant interactive software and social group exercises. Treatment methods address the impairments, disabilities, and social handicaps associated with cognitive styles that appear to underlie the positive, negative, and disorganized symptom domains of schizophrenia. Style-related failures in secondary rather than primary socialization, particularly social cognitive deficits in context appraisal and perspective taking, are targeted goals. Illustrative examples of the techniques used to address social and nonsocial cognitive deficits are provided, together with encouraging preliminary observations regarding the efficacy of CET.  (+info)


What is the evidence that maternal smoking in pregnancy affects the eventual height of the child?


I am researching the effects of maternal smoking during pregnancy, in particular the commonly cited influence upon the eventual adult height of the child.

Most of the research I have found so far compares the heights of children of smoking mothers with a control group at particular ages. Many of these studies find that the children of smoking mothers are indeed shorter.

However, it occurs to me that research has shown greater adult height to be associated with higher socioeconomic status, thought to be related to height-linked social perceptions and advantages.

Given that there are higher rates of smoking among lower socioeconomic groups, it is my interpretation that this could mean that those of shorter adult height are more likely to smoke (and presumably have shorter children irrespective).

Has anybody heard of any studies about the affects of maternal smoking on adult height of the child which account for this type of causation?

I'd be really grateful for any direction.
----------

well i smoked all the way through my pregnancy and my baby was fine and the per center weren't grey either like people say it will be he was all ok and he was 7lb in weight so he weren't small and im 5 ft 5 and my mums really short and she smoked when she was pregnant on me


What duties does a social worker do in the emergency room department?


I will be interviewing for a social worker position in the emergency room department, night shift. I'd like to be prepared for the interview by knowing what the social worker would being in this position.
----------

Some assist in supporting victims of crime, accidents and the families. They also help people bought in with no place to live, no benefits and counseling relatives when the patient dies. Being a social worker in an emergency room , especially on night duty is a very stressful job, and you need a strong stomach and character to deal with people in a time of personal tragedy and crisis. You will deal with reporting abused children and also telling the parents. You will also have to finish your work and leave it at the door if you want to not burn out, as you will meet many people who due to circumstances, budget, time restraints and job limits you are unable to help even though you know that you were there last chance.

A very important part is to have a very good knowledge of the various health laws. Also a very strong collection of resources to direct people to so they can get help from suitable places in the morning.

VIP, you cannot save everyone and some people despite asking for help do not really want it or use it.

Be prepared that they may give you a scenario and ask you what you would do. 


How has social stratification influenced the quest to determine Pellagra's underlying dietary cause?


(Social stratification is the hierarchical separation of a population into various groups, generally based on income, race, educational achievement, or family background. Some strata are “upper”; others are “lower.”)
----------

Are you a minority? Sounds kinda like a case of social B.S. The cure is usually watch less T.V. Study hard,stay open eared and closed mouthed ,smile at your opponents, Is Pellagra's a who or an it? dietary cause? WTF?  Hope your brain don't explode,poindexter.


What clinical skills are required in the provision of contemporary social work to patients in a hospital?


Need to describe examples of when social workers have demonstrated a high level of clinical skills in the provision of contemporary social work services to patients and their families within an acute hospital setting.  Need to know what the social workers did.
----------

Social workers help in cases such as death/dying. Take a patient who does not have the potential of full recovery, the doctors, social workers and family sometimes the patient as well have what is called a family meeting. The social worker then explains exactly what the physician said but in words that a patient would understand. Sometimes a Doctor can say something and it is mistaken in the form of false hope. Social workers also play a huge roll with insurance, and finding further placement for that patient if needed, they are responsible for obtaining the patient home health if needed. Most of the social workers that I work with are/were nurses who wanted a change in career, so they do have a lot of medical background.


How do personally balance your family life with your social life after having children?


When I say social life, I mean literally leaving the home to see friends, etc.  I'm just interested to hear other's opinions.
Desmeran- I added you as a contact and I hope you don't mind.  What you said to me a few days earlier was good information and I just wanted to thank you.
----------

most of the time that i'm with friends our kids are playing together and we're hanging out while watching them. and that comes out to quite a bit of social time for an introvert like me.  we have also twice gone on vacation with other couples whose kids are the same ages as ours.

but i'm married; my husband and i are in this parenting thing together; and we each are happy to watch the kids sometimes so that the other gets a chance for some grownup time.  usually i want that time totally to myself but once a month i go out with a group of neighborhood moms and very occasionally i will use my time to myself for some other social thing.

we also have a great babysitter whom our kids adore, plus my parents recently moved reasonably nearby.  so once in a while we'll go out as a couple and do things ... again, usually just the two of us, but sometimes with friends.  probably the latter once every three or four months.

*i'm relieved that you took it in the spirit in which i meant it.  and i'm fine with anyone who doesn't delete my q&as adding me as a contact.


How much do you get from your monthly social security disability payments?


How much does your monthly Social Security Disability pay?
I know it depends on how long you worked, but How much is it in dollars? Like what it a person worked for 5 or 10 years before they started getting disability? About how much would they get a month? And I assume you also get food stamps in addition to the disability payments? Is that true? Or do they expect the person to use their disability payments for food?
----------

There are great calculators on the SSA website. The amount of Social Security Disability you receive is based on your income when you became disabled.

How do you go about filing for social security disability for a mental disorder?


I think I have social anxiety disorder or something like that. Have not left my house in over a year, running out of money, need help. Not currently seeing a therapist.

you have to get a psychiatrist to agree to your disability, then you just file for it at social security office


I have extremely bad case of social anxiety, besides medication and therapy are there other ways to overcome i?


I didn't  know what it was at first I thought it was just "shyness" and that I would grow out of it well I developed social anxiety. I consider it a extreme case because it causes skip classes (college) to avoid during presentation and other "social activities". I was actually suppose to graduate already but I'm still in school because this issue. My major is social work irronically and I don't want to change it because I really want to help people but it would be impossible to do with the level of anxiety I feel in social settings.
----------

you can overcome this........i have.........listen to your therapist......it takes work........it is awful having it.......It still crops up occassionally when I am shopping in a mall or in a grocery store. Basically you have to expose yourself to what is uncomfortable. I started at first just imagining being in a social situation.....that even made me uncomfortable. Just the thought of it. Then you work your way slowly.......exposing yourself to uncomfortable situations. the funny thing is after a while because you have practiced it.........it isn't uncomfortable anymore. finish the degree and you'll figure it out after you graduate. good luck :)
