How do conditioning, cognition, and biology contribute to the feelings andthoughts that mark anxiety disorders? Provide a specific example of each.

How do conditioning, cognition, and biology contribute to the feelings andthoughts that mark anxiety disorders? Provi...
In anxiety disorder conditioning, cognition and biology contribute in following manner conditioning: it is the previous experience that ascertains your next act. Eg: fear of dogs can be decreased by gradually exposing the stimuli (photo of dog, soft toy of dog) till brain gets conditioned to face the actual stimuli (dog) cognition: useful in behavioural therapy to correct the maladaptive thoughts to rational thoughts. Eg: fear of dogs. So changing the belief of generalised fear (to all dogs) to specific situation (past unpleasant experience with dog). Cognitively disputing that not all dogs will be harmful all the time. Biology: it's the amygdala in the brain that ascertains the fight or flight response and also the next response to similar situation. Eg: fear of dog. Neurochemical changes in amygdala can cause instant fear on exposure to any stimuli (of dog). This is where medications act and help to change the neurochemical problem.

Hi Gone through divorce immediately after marriage & gone through depression at that time for few months. Lost 8/9 kg...
Even though you say that you have come out of depression following divorce, and now having good job and friends, you may be still feeling that parents are responsible for the unfortunate divorce. You may be feeling that the selection of the partner in marriage by them was wrong. They did not enquire about the boy and his family enough. You are not like other friends in married life. You had a failure in marriage, due to your parents. I suggest you meet a psychiatrist with your parents and discuss this issue. Or there may be issues with them regarding the second marriage. It is almost impossible to forget the traumatic event of divorce, it's reasons and consequences. But you must try to forgive and stop blaming others or regretting about the events. Be little more careful in the second marriage and discuss with parents and psychiatrist or a psychologist about what to expect in marriage, and how to deal with the marital problems, if they arise and how to solve them. If your good with everybody else except your parents, these may be the issues I feel. Feel free to discuss with parents and a psychiatrist. Be optimistic and settle down in life and I am sure you will have a good life in future.

Hi, I am 25 years old. I have problems with most of things. I frequently have problems with whatever my parents say. I have frequent fights with my boyfriend. All for the reasons that I think are right. I want people not to disturb me in anyway. shouting of parents, ignorance from loved ones, indifference of people, if somebody disturb my sleep. I get extremely angry and I shout at them, bang doors. Cancel functions etc. I am an HSP. I am light sleeper. I am literature student. I have family problems. I can't adjust with people. Especially I can't share room with anyone. When that happens I go hopelessly irritated. I go frequently angry, gloomy so on. I also have PMS. No other health disorders. When everything happens according to my wish and will, am cheerful and extremely joyful. What must be done? I have anxiety disorders and I get up in the mornings with pounding heart. Most days this happens.

You sound lie someone who is scared but acting angry. Scared people want everything to be under thier control, and so anyone can come along and easily disturb you if they disrupt your system. It can be so bad that you will become vulnerable to others. Because you want to control, you will believe that you are always right! If you go back into your childhood and perhaps with some help from your parents, you could probably find out what happened for you to become this disturbed with fear. That information will be very useful to a counselor to assist you in dealing with this problem. We are all social animals and need each other. If you feel the opposite of this it is not human and so you will have to cultivate friendships and you are not to control them either. If you deal with your fear a lot of your issues will get happily resolved. You should never ever escalate anger over the fear: no one will realise what is going on and everyone will instead get easily irritated with you. You need the help of a counselor not doubt.

Dear u might need to consult a psychiatrist but before that I let u know that what u r terming as ur weaknesses is in fact ur strength....so many people who talk lavishly on fones...or those who are hooked to Facebook..Wats app etc are in fact addicted to them.....and its their weakness ..u r strong in that aspect in that for u Facebook ...computer ..watsapp are not addictions ....u r independent of them and so independent of taking independent decisions....... Not by being influenced by these things... And to take suggestions of family n friends is not dependency.....even in past kings used to have so many mantris....to suggest to them....its good to consult others ...if ur physical illness is causing u to think such way ..then get treated for that....its treatable...otherwise u r absolutely normal.... Just spare few minutes daily to observe ur breath in total silence ...it'll calm ur mind

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. There is nothing much you can do to solve this problem yourself. You need to quit gutkha first. The best option is to use your will power and pledge never to restart it again. Secondly, please make sure to take deaddiction therapy. Thirdly consult a reconstructive surgeon to correct your jaw muscles. Take care.

Know Everything About Forensic Psychiatry

MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, Diploma in Psychological Medicine , MBBS

Know Everything About Forensic Psychiatry

Forensic psychiatry is generally identified as a specialized offshoot of psychiatry, dealing with the calculated treatment and evaluation of mentally disordered offenders in secure hospitals, prisons and in the community. This branch of psychiatry requires an indepth understanding and thorough knowledge of the connection between legality and mental health

Patients of Forensic Psychiatry, generally are affected with personality dysfunctions, mental illness, psychopathic disorders, organic brain damage, learning disability and other conditions, such as histories of abuse and traumatic experiences as well as substance abuse and misuse.

Nature of the work
The most important prerequisite of this branch of psychiatry is a secure and safe environment where the subjects are liable to legal restrictions. Evaluation and assessment may vary from highly secured hospitals and prisons to low secure units and community based services. Forensic psychiatrists must have a thorough knowledge of civil, criminal and case law because of their frequent dealings with criminal justice agencies and the courts. 

An important component of Forensic Psychiatry is risk assessment and evaluation. Forensic psychiatrists must be fluent and adept at handling patients during emergencies or routine situations. Moreover, they should be calm, composed and professional in their dealings, especially with patients who display instability or violent and aggressive behavior.

The probation service, the prison service and the courts generally rely on forensic psychiatrists for expert advice, precisely because of their familiarity with preparing reports for mental health review tribunals and criminal justice agencies.

Imperatives: 

  1. Quintessentially, the obligatory role of a forensic psychiatrist requires:
  2. Ability to treat others with understanding and respect
  3. Ability to work flexibly
  4. Emotional resilience along with the ability to empathize with patients
  5. Anticipation and an inherent initiative to work in challenging situations
  6. Good communication skills
  7. A scientific and analytic approach and assessment
  8. Good leadership qualities

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

In severe stress and depression, you can develop aphthous ulcers or when immunity is down fungal ulcers too. Since you have some personal reasons, better consult a psychiatrist and get treated for your depression, else situation might worsen.

Hi am 24 years old. Am smoking since 2010. Now I am realized to quit smoking. I tried more than 10 times I was failed. Is there any medication to quit smoking. This time I will not give up. Please help me out. Thanks in advance.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will need to visit a doctor for a prescription to quit smoking. Even if you have tried for a hundred times, do not give up. You must try and try again but at each attempt use some learning of the previous attempt and implement it. You will succeed in the end. Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. Smoking uses the respiratory system and gives you a faster kick. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 7000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke and chew tobacco: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga) or chewing, and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking tobacco. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Hello lybrate-user, its sad to loose somebody close, of course this pain can never be healed completely. But one has to carry his life forward in a happy manner. Usually after 3 months people tend get recovered from the loss and do not feed sad. Since you are still having these symptoms you may need therapy in form of counselling sessions or medicines. More so, if this is effecting your daily routine and work, you do need treatment.

I become very loud and loose control at times due to many issues of the past or surroundings, this is hampering my personal life. I know and realize that control is the best remedy and giving other their space and time is the solution. How can I remove this odd trait of mine.

Dear lybrate user, I am happy to see that you are accepting that you need to change some of your reactions. Most of our behaviour we learn from our parents, grandparents, teachers or other important people in our life. Probably while growing up you have learnt these reactions. So now you need to re-learn how to react in different situations. You have mentioned about certain issues in the past, which are affecting your present life. In my opinion, you need to sort out your past issues and learn to" let go" of certain things. After doing this, you will be able to move forward in life. You have certain suppressed anger, guilt or shame, sadness etc. These suppressed emotions need healthy outlet. Once you are relieved of this pent up emotions you will be able to behave rationally. To do this, please talk to a counsellor who will help you in giving healthy outlet to your emotions and will also help you in learning some assertive techniques. Once you learn this, you will be able to express your emotions in socially acceptable way and people around you will have their own space and your rights also will be protected.

Sir I am not suspicious and I watched a video on paranoid disorder patient and I feel that I didn't have much of this disorder because I am free to every one except when girls see me. I didn't separate my self from society, people or anyone else. Sir I made myself strong ethically so as to not feel any change in my sense of response with others. So now from two weeks I am feeling somewhat good.

My friend smokes not cigrate but he smokes hookha once in a month is this can cause any effect in his body please tell.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Hookah is as good as smoking a cigarette. It is claimed to be safer, but that is not so. There is high risk of interstitial lung disease. Smokers have a higher risk of developing respiratory tract infections, apart from lung cancer and oral cancer. It is also a risk factor for peripheral vascular disease. This can lead to gangrene and inflammation of peripheral blood vessels. It is advised that he stops smoking immediately. Consult a psychiatrist for smoking cessation treatment. Medication and nicotine replacement therapy along with counseling will give the best outcome.
