Predicting delayed anxiety and depression in patients with gastrointestinal cancer. (1/2412)

The aim of this study was to examine the possibility of predicting anxiety and depression 6 months after a cancer diagnosis on the basis of measures of anxiety, depression, coping and subjective distress associated with the diagnosis and to explore the possibility of identifying individual patients with high levels of delayed anxiety and depression associated with the diagnosis. A consecutive series of 159 patients with gastrointestinal cancer were interviewed in connection with the diagnosis, 3 months (non-cured patients only) and 6 months later. The interviews utilized structured questionnaires assessing anxiety and depression [Hospital Anxiety and Depression (HAD) scale], coping [Mental Adjustment to Cancer (MAC) scale] and subjective distress [Impact of Event (IES) scale]. Patient anxiety and depression close to the diagnosis were found to explain approximately 35% of the variance in anxiety and depression that was found 6 months later. The addition of coping and subjective distress measures did little to improve that prediction. A model using (standardized) cut-off scores of moderate to high anxiety, depression (HAD) and intrusive thoughts (IES subscale) close to the diagnosis to identify patients at risk for delayed anxiety and depression achieved a sensitivity of 75% and a specificity of 98%. Levels of anxiety and depression at diagnosis predicted a similar status 6 months later. The results also indicated that the HAD scale in combination with the IES intrusion subscale may be used as a tool for detecting patients at risk of delayed anxiety and depression.  (+info)

Increased postwar symptoms and psychological morbidity among U.S. Navy Gulf War veterans. (2/2412)

To investigate reports on war-related morbidity, 527 active-duty Gulf War veterans and 970 nondeployed veterans from 14 Seabee commands were studied in 1994 with a questionnaire, sera collection, handgrip strength, and pulmonary function testing. The questionnaire assessed postwar symptoms, war exposures, and screened for chronic fatigue syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, and psychological symptoms suggesting neurosis (Hopkins Symptom Checklist). Sera were tested with four nonspecific reactant assays: C-reactive protein, transferrin, ferritin, and haptoglobin. Gulf War veterans reported a higher prevalence for 35 of 41 symptoms, scored higher on psychological symptom scales, were more likely to screen for post-traumatic stress disorder, had lower handgrip strength, and had higher serum ferritin assay results. Numerous comparisons of these morbidity outcomes with 30 self-reported exposures demonstrated many associations, but no unique exposure or group of exposures were implicated. Morbidity data are consistent with other postwar observations, but the etiology for morbidity findings remains uncertain.  (+info)

Stillbirth as risk factor for depression and anxiety in the subsequent pregnancy: cohort study. (3/2412)

OBJECTIVE: To assess women's symptoms of depression and anxiety during pregnancy and the postpartum year in the pregnancy after stillbirth; to assess relevance of time since loss. DESIGN: Cohort study with four assessments: in third trimester and 6 weeks, 6 months, and 12 months after birth. SETTING: Outpatient departments of three district general hospitals; subjects' homes. SUBJECTS: 60 women whose previous pregnancy ended in stillbirth after 18 weeks' gestation; 60 matched controls. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Depression and anxiety measured by Edinburgh postnatal depression scale, Beck depression inventory, and Spielberger state-trait anxiety scale. RESULTS: In the third trimester women whose previous pregnancy had ended in stillbirth were significantly more depressed than control women (10.8 v 8.2; P=0.004) and had greater state anxiety (39.8 v 32. 8, P=0.003) The difference was accounted for by those women who conceived less than 12 months after the stillbirth, who were also more depressed at 1 year. Results in those who conceived 12 months or more after stillbirth were similar to those in their controls at all points and showed lower trait anxiety 1 year post partum. One year after the birth 8% of control women and 19% of subjects scored high for depression (P=0.39), with most of the depression among the more recently bereaved (28% v 11%; P=0.18). In the women who had experienced stillbirth, depression in the third trimester was highly predictive of depression 1 year after subsequent birth (P+info)

Frontal lobe syndrome reassessed: comparison of patients with lateral or medial frontal brain damage. (4/2412)

Examination of mood and behaviour changes after frontal damage may contribute to understanding the functional role of distinct prefrontal areas in depression and anxiety. Depression and anxiety disorders, symptoms, and behaviour were compared in eight patients with single lateral and eight patients with single medial frontal lesions matched for age, sex, race, education, socioeconomic status, side, and aetiology of lesion 2 weeks and 3 months after brain injury. DSM IV major depressive and generalised anxiety disorders were more frequent in patients with lateral compared with medial lesions at 2 weeks but not at 3 months. At 3 months, however, patients with lateral damage showed greater severity of depressive symptoms, and greater impairment in both activities of daily living and social functioning. At initial evaluation depressed mood and slowness were more frequent, whereas at 3 months slowness, lack of energy, and social unease were more frequent in the lateral than the medial group. Patients with lateral lesions showed greater reduction of emotion and motivation (apathy) during both examinations. Medial frontal injury may fail to produce emotional dysregulation or may inhibit experience of mood changes, anxiety, or apathy. Lateral prefrontal damage may disrupt mood regulation and drive while leaving intact the ability to experience (negative) emotions.  (+info)

Slapping and spanking in childhood and its association with lifetime prevalence of psychiatric disorders in a general population sample. (5/2412)

BACKGROUND: Little information is available in Canada about the prevalence of and outcomes associated with a history of slapping and spanking in childhood. The objectives of this study were to estimate the prevalence of a history of slapping or spanking in a general population sample and to assess the relation between such a history and the lifetime prevalence of psychiatric disorders. METHODS: In this general population survey, a probability sample of 9953 residents of Ontario aged 15 years and older who participated in the Ontario Health Supplement was used to examine the prevalence of a history of slapping and spanking. A subgroup of this sample (n = 4888), which comprised people aged 15 to 64 years who did not report a history of physical or sexual abuse during childhood, was used to assess the relation between a history of slapping or spanking and the lifetime prevalence of 4 categories of psychiatric disorder. The measures included a self-administered questionnaire with a question about frequency of slapping and spanking during childhood, as well as an interviewer-administered questionnaire to measure psychiatric disorder. RESULTS: The majority of respondents indicated that they had been slapped or spanked, or both, by an adult during childhood "sometimes" (33.4%) or "rarely" (40.9%); 5.5% reported that this occurred "often." The remainder (20.2%) reported "never" experiencing these behaviours. Among the respondents without a history of physical or sexual abuse during childhood, those who reported being slapped or spanked "often" or "sometimes" had significantly higher lifetime rates of anxiety disorders (adjusted odds ratio [OR] 1.43, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.04-1.96), alcohol abuse or dependence (adjusted OR 2.02, 95% CI 1.27-3.21) and one or more externalizing problems (adjusted OR 2.08, 95% CI 1.36-3.16), compared with those who reported "never" being slapped or spanked. There was also an association between a history of slapping or spanking and major depression, but it was not statistically significant (adjusted OR 1.64, 95% CI 0.96-2.80). INTERPRETATION: There appears to be a linear association between the frequency of slapping and spanking during childhood and a lifetime prevalence of anxiety disorder, alcohol abuse or dependence and externalizing problems.  (+info)

Anxiety disorders in late life. (6/2412)

OBJECTIVE: To review the epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and treatment of anxiety disorders in late life. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: Epidemiologic and comorbidity data are derived from well designed random-sample community surveys. There are virtually no controlled data specific to treatment of anxiety in the elderly. Guidelines for treating anxiety disorders in late life, therefore, must be extrapolated from results of randomized controlled trials conducted in younger patients. MAIN MESSAGE: Generalized anxiety disorder and agoraphobia account for most cases of anxiety disorder in late life. Late-onset generalized anxiety is usually associated with depressive illness and, in this situation, the primary pharmacologic treatment is antidepressant medication. Most elderly people with agoraphobia do not give a history of panic attacks; exposure therapy is the preferred treatment for agoraphobia without panic. CONCLUSIONS: Physicians need to make more use of antidepressant medication and behavioural therapy and less use of benzodiazepines in treating anxiety disorders in late life.  (+info)

Assisted bibliotherapy: effective, efficient treatment for moderate anxiety problems. (7/2412)

Specific psychological treatments of proven effectiveness for moderate anxiety disorders are not often easily accessible in general practice. In this study, selected patients were supported in learning skills to manage their symptoms. This approach was efficient, acceptable, and led to clinically significant symptom reduction for a high proportion of patients. This improvement was well sustained at three-month follow-up.  (+info)

An analysis of 60 cases of culture bound syndromes. (8/2412)

Of 60 cases of culture bound syndromes seen in psychiatry OPD, Dhat syndrome was most common (76.7%), followed by possession syndrome (13.3%). Depression by the most common associated psychiatric disorder. As the data on culture bound syndromes in Indian subcontinent is less, this study calls for careful evaluation of these patients psychologically to detect and treat the associated psychiatric comorbidity appropriately.  (+info)

Everyone experiences situations in their life that cause them to feel anxious, such as a big job interview or starting school. However, when anxiety becomes debilitating, an individual may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorder is the most common mood disorder, affecting 1 in 5 adults or 20% of Americans, according The Solace Center website.. Anxiety disorders are characterized by feelings of worry that control or inhibit your daily life, including your job and relationships. Symptoms of an anxiety disorder may include unreasonable stress, racing and unwanted thoughts, fatigue, and irritability. Although everyone experiences stress in their life, those suffering from anxiety disorders may have irrational stress in relation to the event that is causing their anxiety. For example, a person with anxiety disorder may not be able to function in a normal social situation due to high levels of worry. Anxiety disorders can also trigger panic attacks, which are episodes in which an ...

Anxiety disorders such as generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder are typically chronic conditions associated with high health care costs and are often accompanied by psychiatric comorbidity, including major depressive disorder, substance abuse, and other anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorders are associated with significant functional impairment in social, vocational, and familial spheres and with diminished overall quality of life. The following clinical overview provides informal guidelines for identifying remission in patients with an anxiety disorder. A systematic approach to treatment that includes patient education, encouragement of exposure, attention to relevant comorbidities, use of empirically proven pharmacotherapies, and psychosocial interventions of adequate intensity and duration will improve outcomes and move patients toward marked improvement and remission.

Anxiety disorders are common in children and youth. Despite high prevalence rates, most children with anxiety disorders do not receive treatment. In fact, for the few children who are receiving treatment, schools are the primary source of mental health care. When left untreated, children experience significant disruptions in their academic, social, emotional, and behavioral functioning. Therefore, it is important for those working in schools to recognize and treat children with anxiety disorders. The present study surveyed school psychologists (n = 178) to assess their knowledge about anxiety disorders and about empirically supported school-based treatments. Also, this study sought to investigate school psychologists knowledge about many of the difficulties faced by children and youth with anxiety disorders. In addition, this study sough to gain an understanding of the referral and identification processes involving children with anxiety disorders in school and the types of services and supports
Anxiety and anxiety disorders are related, but are different from each other. Anxiety is a normal feeling that occurs whenever something important is about to happen. Anxiety disorder, however, is a persistent overwhelming feeling of distress and fear. It is chronic, unremitting, and can grow worse. Sadly, anxiety disorders are the most common illnesses in America. There are about 40 million adults who suffer from it. Anxiety disorders can be treated, but only one-third of those who suffer from anxiety disorder receive treatment.. The disease, no matter what type, is usually debilitating. One good example is the Generalized Anxiety Disorder or GAD. In this condition, the person is unable to lead a normal life and is forever worried or tense without valid reasons. Because of this, most people suffering from GAD never relax, so that they are often tired and irritable. Their condition is also coupled with other mental health problems, such as depression. Physical symptoms of GAD include: fatigue, ...

Social anxiety disorders can take the form of agoraphobia, which is the fear of open places or large crowds, or generalized anxiety disorder where a person is tense and anxious at all times. These types of anxiety disorders are specifically related to people and especially strangers; rarely do they occur when someone is safe in their own home or in a familiar place.. Panic attacks are also classified as a type of anxiety disorder. This feeling of panic can come on at any time or anywhere; some even experience them when in their own bed! They can also be triggered by certain uncomfortable events or circumstances, such as being in a crowded room or when needing to do some public speaking. Panic anxiety disorder can be experienced by children, or can develop in adults for what seems like absolutely no reason at all..

Anxiety disorders cover a range of conditions in which the major symptoms are nervousness, intense fear, being easily startled, having panic attacks, avoiding feared situations, and, for some, having intrusive thoughts and compulsive behaviors.

There have been suggestions that the threshold for amygdala activity is lower in individuals with anxiety disorders than in healthy individuals. However, despite its immediate plausibility, there have been relatively few tests of this hypothesis. Specifically, there have been very few explorations of the performance of patients with anxiety disorders on measures known to implicate the amygdala.. Although the high co-morbidity of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) complicates the issue, the fact that the disorders doubly dissociate suggests that they are due to dysfunctional activity in separable neurocognitive systems. We would suggest that the hyper-responsive amygdala hypothesis is more likely to be linked to the explanation of GAD. In contrast, SAD may be due to reduced activation thresholds for units in a system that responds to social threat and which recruits lateral orbital frontal cortex. Thus, the current project will determine the performance of ...

Background: Guided Internet-based cognitive behavior therapy (ICBT) has been tested in many trials and found to be effective in the treatment of anxiety and mood disorders. Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) has also been treated with ICBT, but there are no controlled trials on guided Internet-based psychodynamic treatment (IPDT). Since there is preliminary support for psychodynamic treatment for GAD, we decided to test if a psychodynamically informed self-help treatment could be delivered via the Internet. The aim of the study was to investigate the efficacy of IPDT for GAD and to compare against ICBT and a waiting list control group. Method: A randomized controlled superiority trial with individuals diagnosed with GAD comparing guided ICBT (n = 27) and IPDT (n = 27) against a no treatment waiting list control group (n = 27). The primary outcome measure was the Penn State Worry Questionnaire. Results: While there were no significant between-group differences immediately after treatment on the ...

So this is a two-part question. First we will answer the question, when does anxiety become a disorder? Anxiety disorders are diagnosed by psychiatrists utilizing the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, with DSM-5 as the latest version (American Psychiatric Association [APA], 2013). Anxiety disorders are clinical diagnoses, meaning they are diagnosed based on clinical history and patient interview. Psychiatry currently has no biological tests to confirm the diagnosis of an anxiety disorder. So with a clinical diagnosis of an anxiety disorder, multiple factors are analyzed to determine if a person has an anxiety disorder, which includes the following: number of symptoms, difficulty controlling the anxiety, duration, frequency, intensity and impact on daily living. Each of the anxiety disorders has a list of symptoms, and each has a threshold number to meet the criteria for the diagnosis. So if one has the minimum threshold number of symptoms, then an anxiety disorder is likely. ...
Nearly everyone experiences some degree of stress during their college years. The multiple obligations of studying for exams, writing papers, friend or relationship issues, family concerns, participation in athletics, Greek life and other campus activities can contribute to feeling pressured and anxious. However, an anxiety disorder differs from normal stress in that symptoms such as worry, panic and/or physical discomfort are more intense and frequent, and persist even when the situational pressures of life lessen. An anxiety disorder typically causes a great deal of distress, and interferes with the ability to relax and experience a sense of enjoyment and well-being. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety disorders comprise the most common mental health diagnosis in the U.S. Approximately 1 in 9 people suffer from an anxiety disorder at any given time. It is important to diagnose and treat an anxiety disorder that develops or worsens during the college years to help ...

Research shows that anxiety disorders are common and problematic in children. Treatment studies demonstrate that cognitive-behavioural interventions for children can successfully minimise these problems. Further, when implemented as early intervention or prevention programs, these interventions can prevent the onset of anxiety problems in 7 to 14 year olds and reduce existing levels of anxiety. This type of preventive approach has enormous potential for improving community mental health in a low cost model of service delivery. Yet, to develop this as a viable service model, these programs need to be evaluated under real world conditions as opposed to specialist university clinical teams. In this research, the long-term effectiveness of an ecological model of the prevention of anxiety disorders for children was conducted. In the first study, teachers (N = 17) were trained intensively in the principles of anxiety and the FRIENDS anxiety prevention program (Barrett, Lowry-Webster & Holmes, 1999). ...

Abstract: OBJECTIVE: The anticipation of adverse outcomes, or worry, is a cardinal symptom of generalized anxiety disorder. Prior work with healthy subjects has shown that anticipating aversive events recruits a network of brain regions, including the amygdala and anterior cingulate cortex. This study tested whether patients with generalized anxiety disorder have alterations in anticipatory amygdala function and whether anticipatory activity in the anterior cingulate cortex predicts treatment response. METHOD: Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was employed with 14 generalized anxiety disorder patients and 12 healthy comparison subjects matched for age, sex, and education. The event-related fMRI paradigm was composed of one warning cue that preceded aversive pictures and a second cue that preceded neutral pictures. Following the fMRI session, patients received 8 weeks of treatment with extended-release venlafaxine. RESULTS: Patients with generalized anxiety disorder showed greater ...
The Intolerance of UncertaintyModel was initially developed as an explanation for worry within the context of generalized anxiety disorder. However, recent research has identified intolerance of uncertainty (IU) as a possible transdiagnostic maintaining factor across the anxiety disorders and depression. The aim of this study was to determine whether IU mediated the relationship between neuroticismand symptoms related to various anxiety disorders and depression in a treatment-seeking sample (N=328). Consistent with previous research, IU was significantly associated with neuroticism aswell as with symptoms of social phobia, panic disorder and agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and depression. Moreover, IU explained unique variance in these symptom measures when controlling for neuroticism. Mediational analyses showed that IU was asignificant partial mediator between neuroticism and all symptom measures, even when controlling for symptoms of other disorders. ...

Generalised anxiety disorder affects about 4.4% of the adult population in England.1 It is characterised by worry and apprehension. Worries are typically widespread, involving everyday issues and a shifting focus of concern; a person with this disorder finds it difficult to control their worries.2 3 Like other anxiety disorders, it is often chronic if untreated,2 and it is associated with substantial disability equivalent to other chronic physical health problems such as arthritis and diabetes.4 People with generalised anxiety disorder have high levels of service use (visits to general practitioners and hospital), a consequence of somatic symptoms and worries commonly associated with the disorder and because it commonly coexists with chronic physical health problems.5 6 7. This article summarises the most recent recommendations from the partially updated guideline from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) on generalised anxiety disorder and panic disorder (with or ...
While there have been studies showing the effectiveness of treatment of childhood anxiety disorders in the short term, a new study provides evidence of treatment effectiveness over the longer term. Although researchers in this new study found that young people diagnosed with anxiety disorders were more likely to be in remission six years later if they had responded during the acute phase of a treatment study, they also found that "Relapse occurred in almost half (48%) of acute responders, suggesting the need for more intensive or continued treatment for a sizable proportion of youths with anxiety disorders." ...
Anxiety disorders, such as panic disorder (PD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and phobias are common psychiatric disorders, characterized by exaggerated, prolonged and debilitating levels of anxiety. They are complex diseases with onset influenced by both environmental and genetic factors, but so far little progress has been made in identifying solid susceptibility genes. The aim of this study was to shed light on the genetic basis of human anxiety disorders by genetic analyses of putative susceptibility genes. Altogether, 333 single nucleotide polymorphism markers from 30 genes were tested for genetic association to anxiety disorders in a sample (N = 974) derived from the Finnish population-based Health 2000 cohort. Three other samples from Spain (N = 503), Sweden (N = 2020) and USA (N = 1128) were used for replication attempts or meta-analyses. The studied genes were 1) selected based on a mouse model of anxiety-like behavior; 2) ...

Experts dont know exactly what causes anxiety disorders. Several things seem to play a role, including genetics, brain biochemistry, an overactive fight-flight response, stressful life circumstances, and learned behavior.. A child with a family member who has an anxiety disorder has a greater chance of developing one, too. This may be related to genes that can affect brain chemistry and the regulation of chemicals called neurotransmitters. But not everyone with a family member who has an anxiety disorder will develop problems with anxiety.. Things that happen in a childs life can set the stage for anxiety disorders in childhood or later in life. Loss (like the death of a loved one or parents divorce) and major life transitions (like moving to a new town) are common triggers. Kids with a history of abuse are also more vulnerable to anxiety.. Growing up in a family where others are fearful or anxious also can "teach" a child to view the world as a dangerous place. Likewise, a child who grows up ...

Dr. Sophia Frangou was recently appointed UBC Presidents Excellence Chair in Brain Health.. New research published recently in JAMA Psychiatry shows for the first time that patients with mood and anxiety disorders share the same abnormalities in regions of the brain involved in emotional and cognitive control.. The findings hold promise for the development of new treatments targeting these regions of the brain in patients with major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and anxiety disorders.. "These brain imaging findings provide a science-based explanation as to why patients with mood and anxiety disorders seem to be locked in to negative mood states," said Dr. Sophia Frangou, the studys senior author and a psychiatry professor at UBC. "They also corroborate the patients experience of being unable to stop and switch away from negative thoughts and feelings.".

Anxiety disorders and externalizing problems are both associated with substance use disorders. However, the nature of this relationship remains unclear. To examine whether presence of an anxiety disorder changes the association between externalizing problems (conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and substance use disorders, we analyzed data from the National Comorbidity Survey-Replication, which is based on a nationally representative sample of 9282 English-speaking adults. Presence of externalizing problems was associated with an increased odds for alcohol abuse (OR: 6.7, CI: 5.6-8.1), alcohol dependence (OR: 7.6, CI: 5.9-9.6), substance abuse (OR: 9.9. CI: 8.1-12.2), and substance dependence (OR: 13.1. CI: 9.6-17.8). Similarly, anxiety disorders were associated with increased odds for substance use disorders. The highest association was found between post-traumatic stress disorder and substance use disorder (OR: 9.2, CI: 5.4-15.5). ...
General anxiety disorder or generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is an anxiety disorder that is characterized by uncontrollable worry about everyday things. The frequency, intensity, and duration of the worry are disproportionate to the actual source of worry, and such worry often interferes with daily functioning. GAD sufferers often uncontrollably worry over things such as their job, their finances, and the health of themselves and their family. However, GAD sufferers can also constantly abnormally worry over more mundane things such as timeliness for appointments, keeping the house clean, and whether or not their workspace is properly organized. For a diagnosis of GAD to be made, worry must be present more days than not for at least six months.. Physical symptoms of GAD can include: cold, clamy hands; difficulty swallowing; gastrointestinal discomfort and diarrhea; jumpiness; muscle tension; nausea; and sweating. GAD sufferers also easily become tired and have trouble sleeping. They also tend ...
Anxiety is a complex combination of feeling apprehension, dread, fear, nervousness and worry, in anticipation of problems or misfortune. If youve ever had to speak or perform in front of a large group of people, youve probably felt a little anxiety. Most people do. In fact, its perfectly normal to feel anxious when facing difficult, dangerous or even challenging situations. However, for about 18% of the adult population (about 40 million people), anxiety is something far more serious and persistent. These people have anxiety disorders, which are often severe enough to interfere with family relations, socializing and work. Anxiety disorders include panic disorder (panic attacks), phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. Severe anxiety can manifest as shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat or heart palpitations, muscle tension, trembling, insomnia, irritability, chest pain, cold sweats, feeling faint and general feelings of stress. ...

Patients with anxiety disorders exhibit excessive neural reactivity in the amygdala, which can be normalized by effective treatment like cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). Mechanisms underlying the brains adaptation to anxiolytic treatments are likely related both to structural plasticity and functional response alterations, but multimodal neuroimaging studies addressing structure-function interactions are currently missing. Here, we examined treatment-related changes in brain structure (gray matter (GM) volume) and function (blood-oxygen level dependent, BOLD response to self-referential criticism) in 26 participants with social anxiety disorder randomly assigned either to CBT or an attention bias modification control treatment. Also, 26 matched healthy controls were included. Significant time x treatment interactions were found in the amygdala with decreases both in GM volume (family-wise error (FWE) corrected P-FWE = 0.02) and BOLD responsivity (P-FWE = 0.01) after successful CBT. Before ...
About 20% of people will be affected by an anxiety disorder in their lifetime. Anxiety disorders tend to be associated with major impairments and, in some cases, even profound suffering. Fortunately, they are highly treatable and the success rates of available anxiety therapies are the highest of all psychological treatment schemes. Yet, on average half of all sufferers are never offered adequate treatment. To change this, it is crucial that both the public and health professionals are adequately informed and mental-health professionals comprehensively trained in effective anxiety treatments. Additionally, empirical research remains indispensable to help devise strategies that prevent the development of anxiety disorders, while reliable early screening approaches are needed to avoid chronicity. Still, 20-30% of patients that have received appropriate treatment will not benefit sufficiently. It is this treatment-resistant group in particular and thus the improvement of existing interventions that ...
There are several recognised anxiety disorders, including:. Panic disorder: people suffering from this condition have feelings of terror, sometimes known as panic attacks, which may strike suddenly and repeatedly with no warning. Other symptoms of a panic attack can include sweating, palpitations (irregular heartbeat), chest pain and a feeling of choking, sometimes making a person feel like they are having a heart attack or losing control.. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): people with OCD are overcome by continual thoughts or fears that in turn cause them to perform particular rituals or routines. These disturbing thoughts are known as obsessions, and the rituals are called compulsions. An example is a person with an unreasonable fear of germs who constantly washes their hands.. Social anxiety disorder: also known as social phobia; social anxiety disorder involves overwhelming worry and self-consciousness about everyday social situations. The worry often centres on a fear of being judged by ...

Objective: This study evaluated the efficacy and tolerability of agomelatine in the prevention of relapse in patients with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).. Method: Patients with GAD (Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale [HARS] ≥ 22, with items 1 and 2 ≥ 2, item 1 + 2 ≥ 5; Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale [MADRS] ≤ 16; and , 20% decrease in HARS total score between screening and baseline) who responded to a 16-week course of agomelatine 25-50 mg/d treatment were randomly assigned to receive continuation treatment with agomelatine (n = 113) or placebo (n = 114) for 26 weeks. The main outcome measure was time to relapse during this maintenance period. The estimated risk of relapse was calculated using the Kaplan-Meier method, and groups were compared using a log-rank test stratified for country. The study was undertaken in 31 clinical centers in Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, and Sweden from November 2007 to September 2009.. Results: During the 6-month maintenance period, ...
BACKGROUND: Internet-administered cognitive behavioural therapy (ICBT) has been found to be effective for a range of anxiety disorders. However, most studies have focused on one specific primary diagnosis and co-morbidity has not been considered. In primary care settings, patients with anxiety often suffer from more than one psychiatric condition, making it difficult to disseminate ICBT for specific conditions. The aim of this study will be to investigate if ICBT tailored according to symptom profile can be a feasible treatment for primary care patients with anxiety disorders. It is a randomised controlled trial aimed to evaluate the treatment against an active control group. METHODS: Participants with anxiety disorders and co-morbid conditions (N = 128), will be recruited from a primary care population. The Clinical Outcome in Routine Evaluation (CORE-OM) will serve as the primary outcome measure. Secondary measures include self-reported depression, anxiety, quality of life and loss of ...

Anxiety disorders constitute the most common psychiatric diagnosis, but our understanding of their underlying neurobiology is still limited. Moreover, unlike many psychiatric symptoms, anxiety has clear adaptive analogues. Anxiety evoked when walking through a shadowy park at night, for instance, can prime defensive reactions and promote harm avoidance. One possibility therefore is that the pathological and adaptive states of anxiety share common underlying neurobiology. To this end, I will present studies in humans using a) a model of adaptive anxiety that has been back translated from animal models - threat of unpredictable shock - and b) studies in patients with anxiety disorders. I will first present neuroimaging data implicating coupling between the amygdala and the medial wall of the cingulate and prefrontal cortex in maintaining both adaptive and pathological anxiety. Next, I will present data suggesting that this coupling can be modulated by components of both pharmacological and ...
The first step in the treatment of an anxiety disorder is to make an accurate diagnosis. To do this, the practitioner must conduct a thorough examination considering the symptoms and signs, the precipitants of symptoms, the persons life experiences and personality, current medications (including those for non-psychiatric reasons), the medical history, the social history, the family history, and the stressors impacting that persons life. The practitioners experience in treating anxiety disorders is important so that the right questions are considered. If the person has not already been evaluated for anxiety caused by an underlying general medical condition, laboratory testing is conducted to rule out common general medical disorders that have anxiety as a symptom.. The second step is to relieve the severity and frequency of the manifestations of the anxiety disorder. This is the reason that the person seeks treatment and is a prerequisite for restoring adequate social and occupational ...
When anxiety disorders are related to physical illnesses, treatment for the medical condition can relieve or in some cases completely resolve the anxiety symptoms. For some medical patients, the anxiety has become a learned-behavior and may still require mental health therapy or psycho therapeutic medications (anti-anxiety drugs and/or anti-depressants). Therapies that are used to help people with anxiety disorders are designed to help them cope with anxiety and to work better with the emotion for more positive responses to it. Some therapies include "exposure techniques" in which an anxiety sufferer is slowly exposed to the phobia(s) that are causing them problems in life, so that they become less fearful of them.. Biofeedback techniques may also be used, which helps anxiety sufferers to observe their bodily responses to anxiety and stress and to develop strategies for redirecting those responses and channeling them into positive, rather than negative reactions. One of the more successful ...
Patients with generalized anxiety disorder experience worry or anxiety and a number of physical and psychologic symptoms. The disorder is frequently difficult to diagnose because of the variety of presentations and the common occurrence of comorbid medical or psychiatric conditions. The lifetime prevalence is approximately 4 to 6 percent in the general population and is more common in women than in men. It is often chronic, and patients with this disorder are more likely to be seen by family physicians than by psychiatrists. Treatment consists of pharmacotherapy and various forms of psychotherapy. The benzodiazepines are used for short-term treatment, but because of the frequently chronic nature of generalized anxiety disorder, they may need to be continued for months to years. Buspirone and antidepressants are also used for the pharmacologic management of patients with generalized anxiety disorder. Patients must receive an appropriate pharmacologic trial with dosage titrated to optimal levels as judged

OBJECTIVE: Anxiety in cancer patients may represent a normal psychological reaction. To detect patients with pathological levels, appropriate screeners with established cut-offs are needed. Given that previous research is sparse, we investigated the diagnostic accuracy of 2 frequently used screening tools in detecting generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).. METHODS: We used data of a multicenter study including 2141 cancer patients. Diagnostic accuracy was investigated for the Generalized Anxiety Disorder Screener (GAD-7) and the anxiety module of the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS-A). GAD, assessed with the Composite International Diagnostic Interview for Oncology, served as a reference standard. Overall accuracy was measured with the area under the receiver operating characteristics curve (AUC). The AUC of the 2 screeners were statistically compared. We also calculated accuracy measures for selected cut-offs.. RESULTS: Diagnostic accuracy could be interpreted as adequate for both ...
When some people hear the term "anxiety disorder," they may lump all the different symptoms together as one condition. But the truth is there are different types of anxiety disorders, says the American Psychiatric Association, and each has its own specific symptoms and diagnostic criteria. Still, there are a few common signs to look out for:. Related: Symptoms of anxiety disorders. Panic Disorder is characterized by panic attacks, which the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) says can come on without warning. During a panic attack, people experience heart palpitations, shortness of breath, an upset stomach and fear.. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) takes the form of repetitive behaviors, caused by intrusive and often irrational thoughts or fears. For example, a person with OCD might check, double check, and triple check that the stove has been turned off for fear of accidentally burning the house down, even though she realizes that the stove is turned off the first time she ...
Anxiety disorders produce symptoms of fear that are felt at times when nothing alarming is happening. Anxiety disorders can produce physical symptoms such as heart palpitations, dizziness, or digestive problems.Most people have an exaggerated fear of something such as heights, performing in public, or small creatures. In most cases, people can live a happy life in spite of these fears. But for millions of people, the problem is severe enough to cause them suffering - or to restrict their activity.Anxiety disorders include:

Anywhere from 24 percent to 31 percent of patients with heart disease also have symptoms of anxiety, Dr. Martens notes.. Anxiety may be linked with surges in "fight or flight" hormones called catecholamines that may be related to heart risks.. Or it is possible that people with anxiety may be more likely to seek medical care when they have symptoms of a cardiovascular event (although researchers noted this would not explain the higher rates of death).. Or a common underlying factor may increase the risk of both anxiety and heart events.. The research included over 1,000 people with stable coronary heart disease who were assessed for anxiety disorder at the start of the study and then followed for an average of 5.6 years.. During that time, there were a total of 371 cardiovascular events (heart attacks or other incidents that may cause damage to the heart).. The yearly rate of cardiovascular events was 9.6 percent among the 106 patients with generalized anxiety disorder and 6.6 percent among the ...

Social anxiety disorder remains the least understood anxiety disorder with many people going undiagnosed. A large part of the problem is that social anxiety is difficult to fully understand because you cant see it, and it is happening internally.
Virch-Egress Anxiety Disorder (VEAD) also sometimes called "Ril-phobia" is an anxiety disorder characterized by intense fear of physical social relations after long term immersion in virtual realities, causing an impaired ability to function in three of the five basic life areas (family, social, work, education, or leisure). The diagnosis can be of a specific disorder (when only some particular situations are feared) or a generalized disorder. Generalized virch-egress anxiety disorder typically involves a persistent, chronic, fear of being visually or behaviorally observed and judged by others and of being embarrassed or humiliated by typical physical-social characteristics or behaviors. These fears can be triggered by perceived or actual scrutiny from others in physical-social settings ...
When you think about separation anxiety disorder you most likely associate it with children. But theres now evidence that the condition is also present in adults. In adults, the condition causes an irrational feeling of anxiety and fear when a spouse or loved one is out of sight or has been out of contact for a relatively short period of time. Psychologists are actually contemplating adding the condition to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. About 1/3 of children suffering from separation anxiety disorder go on to be adults suffering from the disorder with these adults accounting for 22.5% of adults suffering from separation anxiety disorder. However, the vast majority of adults suffering from separation anxiety disorder develop the condition as a result of events that have occurred during adulthood. A higher percentage of adults suffer from separation anxiety disorder than children. While 7% of adults develop the condition only 4% of children develop separation anxiety ...
Racial/ethnic differences in health are evident among men. Previous work suggests associations between mental and physical health but few studies have examined how mood/anxiety disorders and chronic physical health conditions covary by age, race, and ethnicity among men. Using data from 1,277 African American, 629 Caribbean Black, and 371 non-Hispanic White men from the National Survey of American Life, we examined associations between race/ethnicity and experiencing one or more chronic physical health conditions in logistic regression models stratified by age and 12-month mood/anxiety disorder status. Among men ,45 years without mood/anxiety disorders, Caribbean Blacks had lower odds of chronic physical health conditions than Whites. Among men aged 45+ years with mood/anxiety disorders, African Americans had greater odds of chronic physical health conditions than Whites. Future studies should explore the underlying causes of such variation and how studying mental and chronic physical health ...
Social anxiety can be defined as nervousness in social situations. Some disorders associated with the social anxiety spectrum include anxiety disorders, mood disorders, autism, eating disorders, and substance use disorders. Individuals higher in social anxiety avert their gazes, show fewer facial expressions, and show difficulty with initiating and maintaining conversation. Trait social anxiety, the stable tendency to experience this nervousness, can be distinguished from state anxiety, the momentary response to a particular social stimulus. Nearly 90% of individuals report feeling a form of social anxiety (i.e., shyness) at some point in their lives. Half of the individuals with any social fears meet criteria for social anxiety disorder. The function of social anxiety is to increase arousal and attention to social interactions, inhibit unwanted social behavior, and motivate preparation for social situations such as performance situations. Social anxiety is a normal and necessary emotion for ...
The Samenta study was conducted in 2009 in the Greater Paris area to estimate the prevalence of psychiatric disorders among the homeless. A cross-sectional survey was performed with a three-stage random sample of homeless people (n = 859), including users of day services, emergency shelters, hot meal distribution, long-term rehabilitation centres and social hotels. Information was collected by a lay interviewer, using the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview, and completed by a psychologist through an open clinical interview. In the end, a psychiatrist assessed the psychiatric diagnosis according to the ICD10. One third of the homeless in the Paris area had at least one severe psychiatric disorder: psychotic disorders (13%), anxiety disorders (12%) or severe mood disorders (7%). One in five was alcohol dependent and 18% were drug users. Homeless women had significantly higher prevalence of anxiety disorders and depression and men were more likely to suffer from psychotic disorders. Homeless

There are long-term, biological, environmental, and social causes of panic attacks. In 1993, Fava et al. proposed a staging method of understanding the origins of disorders. The first stage in developing a disorder involves predisposing factors, such as genetics, personality, and a lack of wellbeing.[11] Panic disorder often occurs in early adulthood, although it may appear at any age. It occurs more frequently in women and more often in people with above-average intelligence. Various twin studies where one identical twin has an anxiety disorder have reported a 31-88% incidence of the other twin also having an anxiety disorder diagnosis.[12]. Biological causes may include obsessive compulsive disorder, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, post traumatic stress disorder, hypoglycemia, hyperthyroidism, Wilsons disease, mitral valve prolapse, pheochromocytoma, and inner ear disturbances (labyrinthitis). Dysregulation of the norepinephrine system in the locus ceruleus, an area of the brain ...
The National Comorbidity Survey Replication Adolescent Supplement (NCS-A) was designed to estimate the lifetime-to-date and current prevalence, age-of-onset distributions, course, and comorbidity of DSM-IV disorders in the child and adolescent years of life among adolescents in the United States; to identify risk and protective factors for the onset and persistence of these disorders; to describe patterns and correlates of service use for these disorders; and to lay the groundwork for subsequent follow-up studies that can be used to identify early expressions of adult mental disorders. The core NCS-A interview schedule was an adaptation of the World Health Organization Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI). NCS-A also administered the non-verbal subtest (Matrices subtest) of the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (K-BIT). In addition to interviewing adolescents, information was collected from a parent or a parent surrogate to obtain an additional perspective on the adolescents mental ...
