Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - Treatment, Procedure And Side Effects

What is the treatment?

A Cognitive-behavioral therapy or a CBT as it is commonly called is known as a “Talk Therapy”. This is a therapy which focuses on your negativity in life and tries to channel your emotions and your thought process in a more positive way. This is achieved by a series of sessions with the counselor or the therapist. CBT can be very effective in treating mental disorders such as depression, post-traumatic disorder or in some rare cases, an eating disorder. It is basically done so that your life can become balanced and you would be able to live your life in a profitable way. The treatment would be laid out in a structured way, and your counselor would decide on the number of sessions you would need for betterment. The sessions usually focus on you to talk and make you responsible for your actions. These sessions also help you cope with grief or loss and help you deal with a mental illness. You might also be facing abuse or violence, and these treatments can assist you with relieving them and cope up with them. Drugs are rarely involved, and if involved they would work in tandem with other treatment options.

How is the treatment done?

The procedure is known as a talk therapy where you would be fixing up a specific time with the counselor. During these sessions, the counselor would try to get into your frame and focus on the things that bother you and things that bring out the negativity in you. In many cases, you would be requested to talk a lot and open up yourself. The counselor can start from your early childhood and can continue with your adult life. It would be only after five or six sessions that the real nature of the underlying condition would be discussed. It is the channel to experience and revisit painful memories, emotions, and experiences. You can also be physically drained from these sessions, but that is what these sessions are for – to be open about your condition. Also, the treatments can break your thought process, and you can look at many scenarios of life differently. You may be made to undergo certain activities in life that you normally would not do, due to fear or anxiety. For example, if you have trouble with crowds, you might be asked to go through a crowded marketplace just to let go of our fear. Drugs are involved only if needed and are used only as a last resort.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

Any individual who is suffering from mental health disorders such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder or an eating disorder can be a candidate for the treatment. It can be done irrespective of gender or age. Since these types of treatment deal with the psychological imbalances of a person, they are advised upon more frequently to change his behavior patterns.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

here are no eligible criteria and every individual who is having trouble with the idea of existence and post traumatic syndrome can be a potential candidate for such therapies. Also, this treatment is imparted upon as a series of session and more of a talk between the counselor and the patient. Hence the treatment can be had irrespective of age or gender.

Are there any side effects?

There are no side effects for such treatment as they involve a series of talk between a patient and a counselor. There can be some medications and drugs involved at a later point of time, and in such cases, you might have to discuss with your doctor about the side effects and the nature of the effects the drugs can have on you.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

You might have to make lots of changes to your lifestyle and your environment. The principal factor the therapist addresses upon is the shift in place that can focus you in the right direction. Also, the treatment identifies what is the reason for your condition and works on it from the root cause. You might have to stay away from the activities that cause it in the first place. For example, if the reason for your condition is due to the stress that you face in your work then you have to look for a change of workplace to control the emotions.

How long does it take to recover?

The treatment plan depends on every individual and is customized to suit every individual’s need. As a result, the length of the treatment may vary. It usually comprises of a session between a counselor and the patient and the average treatment plan would consist of between 10 to 20 sessions.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

Again, this depends on the medical center and the number of sessions a person has. Each session can cost on an average about INR 300. In the case of medications being involved, the costs can be additional.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

The treatment works predominantly on the type of the condition one is treated with. Having said that- the results can vary from person to person. The treatment can be more permanent when the individual is more open to the treatment plan and how far he/she is cooperating with the counselor. Also, the results of the drug may vary.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

The person, as an alternate treatment, can involve himself with activities that can keep him occupied with a favorite hobby or a pass time. Also, he /she can indulge in sports and recreation or can look for alternate options such as yoga or meditation. An individual has to accept himself first, and he/she can find the medium through various channels like traveling, exercises, and therapies.

Audio Visual Entertainment + Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation

Now, psychological problems can be managed better using cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation with Audio Visual Entertainment

If you happen to suffer from anxiety, depression, or insomnia, then you could benefit from simulation techniques such as Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) or audio-visual entrainment (AVE). These methods can also be used to treat headaches, give up smoking and fibromyalgia. Read on further to gain an insight and consult with an expert to experience its benefits.

CES and its benefits
Cranial electrotherapy stimulation uses a small device about the size of a cell phone which helps in the stimulation of the brain and the cranium with a very low power current usually below four milliamps. The microcurrent helps in an enhanced production of endorphin that helps in the facilitation of deep levels of relaxation leading to a sense of well - being. The best thing about this particular therapy is that there is no known or seen side-effects and thus a safe procedure to be carried out.

Besides the treatment of anxiety, depression, and disorders of the sleep, cranial electrotherapy stimulation is also proven to show a number of other benefits as well. It can be used for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic disorder as well. Clinical studies have also revealed that the therapy is quite beneficial for cognitive dysfunction, traumatic injury of the brain and pain. Also, the therapy plays a crucial role in the enhancement of attention and concentration along with decreasing assaultive behavior. This simple handheld device can be purchased through a prescription for your physician.

Audio - Visual Entrainment and its benefits
The therapy combines the use of mild pulsating LED lights in the eye frames and psychoacoustic sounds in headphones for a quick deep relaxation by guiding the brain into various states of brainwave activity. Hence AVE is known as a mind machine that can help in the treatment of psychological and physiological disorders. The integration of neurotransmitter balancing, hypnotic learning, emotional and behavioral change helps in the immediate boosting up of the attention. This basically provides an all in one solution making the therapy both efficient and effective at the same time.

In this audiovisual entertainment process, the adjustable sound makes it easier for the person to focus and relax in peace. The eye sets are specially designed for the allowance of left and right visual fields of each of eyes to be stimulated individually rather than the entire eye at once. Getting regular sessions of this therapy will make the effects last for a longer duration of time. You will be able to notice less stress, better focus and mood, improved quality of sleep, high energy, and enhanced creativity.

Social Anxiety - 10 Tips To Help You Overcome!

Social Anxiety - 10 Tips To Help You Overcome!

Social anxiety disorder or social anxiety phobia is characterised by an extreme and often, unrealistic fear of social situations and scenarios. A patient suffering from this condition will usually be ridden with self-confidence and a sense of intense nervousness, as if he or she is being constantly watched and scrutinised. It may be caused by biological, psychological or environmental factors. Let us find out ten ways to getting over the same.

  1. CBT: CBT or cognitive behavioural therapy is a form of talk therapy that allows a patient to speak with a psychologist or psychiatrist, so as to find out the root cause of the condition. This form of theory helps in arriving at ways of overcoming the feelings of nervousness in social situations.
  2. Practice going out with smaller groups: It is said that sticking to small and intimate groups can help in overcoming the hesitation and self-esteem issues that many of these patients feel. Once they are comfortable, they can take on larger groups.
  3. Medication: Antidepressants and beta blockers are sometimes prescribed along with other kinds of medication, for patients who are unable to control their intense anxiety in social situations.
  4. Face the fear: A little introspection will help you arrive at the reason or root cause of your anxiety. This can help in facing the fears and tackling them. You can talk about these fears with someone.
  5. Unhelpful thinking: Tackle unhelpful thinking where you imagine people are looking at you in a certain way because they must be judging you. Tell yourself over and over until you believe that it is not true.
  6. Focus on yourself: The key is to focus on yourself instead of getting hooked on to what others may be thinking about you. This will help in banishing the negative thoughts.
  7. Be in the present: Practice deep breathing or meditation to bring yourself back to the present every time you begin to think about what people may be thinking about you when you are in a social scenario.
  8. Lifestyle changes: Drinking less and not smoking at all can also help in the better production of hormones that will help in balanced thinking, especially in anxiety-ridden situations.
  9. Group therapy: Much like CBT, group therapy gives you space and platform to voice your fears and anxiety. The advantage of this kind of therapy is that you can also hear the stories and fears of other people, which will give you some point of reference when it comes to overcoming your own fears.
  10. Communication skills: You can go to a counsellor or get soft skills training for better communication skills, which will help you improve your social interactions. This, in turn, will give you much confidence to deal with the world outside. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Suicidal Tendencies - Can Your Immune System Influence it?

Suicidal Tendencies - Can Your Immune System Influence it?

Ending one’s life is terrible. But often, instead of analysing the patient’s mental condition at that time, we tend to judge them. The most common cause for suicides is undoubtedly depression. Adverse social or financial conditions often contribute to the mental condition of patients. However, a recent paper published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology might change the way we think about suicides. Lena Brundin and her co-workers have come to the conclusion in the paper titled “Role of inflammation in suicide: from mechanism to treatment,” that our immune system can trigger off suicidal thoughts and tendencies. Let us find out how.

  1. There is proof that certain medicines that are used to treat cancer patients can affect the immune responses. This in turn can trigger off suicidal tendencies.
  2. Certain injuries can lead to brain disorders which are related to inflammatory responses that might be responsible for some changes in behaviour often leading to suicidal thoughts.
  3. Just like certain medications trigger of suicidal thoughts, there are some that might diminish them like Lithium. It is used to treat bi-polar disorder. What it does is decrease immune related chemicals. Another drug has proved to be very effective in reducing suicidal thoughts and tendencies – Ketamine. Ketamine, like Lithium, has been found to block certain chemicals that are related to immune response.
  4. Though the whole topic is still under extensive research, it can perhaps be concluded that certain drugs have the ability to lessen suicidal thoughts and depression because they block some chemicals that are related to immunity.

The suicidal mentality is very complex. It requires not just medicines, but counselling, empathy, love and understanding. Often, many patients cannot come out of their depression, resulting in therapy sessions that are fruitless. In those cases, medicines that might reduce the negative thoughts and moods will come handy. It will help the patient initially to deal with the situation and start with a lot of positivity. Every year, almost one million deaths occur due to suicide. Not only does it leave behind survivors who attempt to kill themselves but also broken families that struggle to get over the death. If this research is successful, several people will benefit from it, all over the world. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Behaviour Problems Among Children - Things Parents Should Know and Never Ignore!

Behaviour Problems Among Children - Things Parents Should Know and Never Ignore!

Diagnosis & Management of Behavioural Disorders in Children

Disruptive behavioural disorders are complicated and may include many different factors working in combination. For example, a child who exhibits the delinquent behaviours of Conduct Disorder may also have ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, and a difficult home life. 

Diagnosis methods may include:

  1. Diagnosis by a specialist: Paediatrician, Psychologist or Child Psychiatrist.
  2. In-depth Interviews with the parents, child and teachers.
  3. Behaviour check lists or standardised Questionnaires.
  4. A diagnosis is made if the child’s behaviour meets the criteria for disruptive behaviour disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders from the American Psychiatric Association.

It is important to rule out acute stressors that might be disrupting the child’s behaviour. For example, a sick parent or victimising by other children might be responsible for sudden changes in a child’s typical behaviour and these factors have to be considered initially.

How can habit disorders affect behaviour?

Most children develop certain repetitive behaviours at an early age, but it is the frequency, persistence or its effects on the overall well-being of the child which could qualify it as a ‘Disorder’. These habits include

  1. Repetitive sucking of the thumb
  2. Biting of the nails
  3. Hitting his own self
  4. Pulling at his own hair
  5. Holding on to his breath just for the sake of it

This refers to the behavioural issues of your child which cause the child to misbehave more often; this can be due to a variety of reasons such as Improper Parenting, Persistent Family problems, child abuse or Neglect, or any other incident that has traumatised the child in the past, both psychological problems or Medical illnesses etc.

Preventive Measures:

  1. Respect Others Space - Your child may be very excited to tell you about some special event or happening in school, but teach him not to interrupt you when you are at work. He must learn to respect other people’s space and have patience while dealing with people. Otherwise, he would not be able to take rejections and thus be inconsiderate in his attitude.
  2. Adjustment with Peers - Monitor how he behaves with his playmates. Stop him when he happens to fight with his playmates or fights with them aggressively and teach him how exactly to behave with people.
  3. Firm Discipline - You should deal with stubbornness with a bit of high-handedness. Look at your child right into the eye and tell him what is expected of him. Be tough, but not rude.
  4. Balance Independence - Monitor his use of PCs, laptops and mobiles. Well, that doesn’t mean you need to loom over everything he does on his gadget, but do try to watch over the content whether it is inappropriate or not. But remember to never really pry and barge into his privacy. Respect that and you can still humour him.

Treatment of behavioural disorders in children

Untreated children with behavioural disorders may grow up to be dysfunctional adults. Generally, the earlier the intervention, the better the outcome is likely to be.  Treatment is usually multifaceted and depends on the particular disorder and various factors contributing to it, which may include:

  1. Parental education – For example, teaching parents how to communicate with and manage their children.
  2. Family therapy The entire family is helped to improve communication and problem-solving skills.
  3. Cognitive behavioural therapy – To help the child to control their thoughts and behaviour.
  4. Social training – The child is taught important social skills, such as how to have a conversation or play cooperatively with others.
  5. Anger management The child is taught how to recognise the signs of their growing frustration and given a range of coping skills designed to defuse their anger and aggressive behaviour. Relaxation techniques and stress management skills are also taught.
  6. Support for associated problems – For example, a child with a learning difficulty will benefit from professional support.
  7. Use of Reinforcement – Many children with behavioural disorders experience repeated failures at school and in their interactions with others. Encouraging the child to excel in their particular talents (such as sport) can help to build self-esteem using positive reinforcements both verbal and non-verbal.
  8. Medication – To help control impulsive behaviours if required so. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people's difficulties, and so change the way they feel. The treatment depends on the problem. Because each goal is taken separate, complete cure could take time. But goal oriented approach, each goal can be achieved around 4 to 6 weeks. Take care.

Dear user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Misconceptions Of Counselling And Therapy
Hello!

I am Rashi Laskari, a practicing counselling psychologist working in the field of individual relationship and family counselling. at Inner Light Counselling Center we are privileged to be able to help people, our clients, at resolving various issues that they go through in their lives- personal, professional, marital or even life experience. I want to use this platform to be able to reach out to each one of you, to clear out the many miss-giving or misconceptions we hold about counselling or therapy. One of the questions which most people ask us is - How do I know that I need counselling? or When should I consider starting therapy? Well reality is that all of us go through the difficult times, have problems in our life and feel the need. Don't we all feel the need to talk to someone about our issues, about our problems?

This is the time that we think, that we want to reach out to someone whom we trust. It could be friends, family or people who are in our inner circle. But there are certain things that inhibit us from reaching out to them. The fear that they may be opinionated or the mere fact that they are they are not skilled to be able to help us with our difficult emotions. Then what should we do? Should we not talk to them at all? A psychologist or psychiatrist are professionals working in the field of Mental Health. They are skilled to not only understand your behaviour but also understand the complexities of your emotions and help you to cope with that effectively. There are times when we find ourselves frequently unhappy.

Unable to cope with what we were able to deal with earlier. Either our emotions are controlling our behaviour or we find ourselves crying very easily or not able to manage other emotions such as anger, sadness or fear. These are times when you can reach out to a professional counsellor who can help you not only understand your emotions but also learn to cope with them effectively. Most of us tend to leave issues of our past unresolved and these influence the roles we play in our life presently. Your role as a parent or as a husband or wife or even that of an employee. Coping with your past and learning how to deal with it effectively that counselling and psychological therapy can help you with.

Very often people go through physiological difficulties such as sleeplessness, unexplained fatigue, lack of concentration and many such issues that may not be able to find a physiological reason but are disrupting your day to day routine. Reach out to a counsellor or a psychologist who can help you to reach to the root of these problems and resolve them. We all have many thoughts in our mind and these thoughts are sometimes not helping us grow. If you find yourself stuck with negative thoughts that are in a cyclic pattern repetitively causing you harm or causing harm to your progress, you may want to speak to someone to understand them better. These thoughts can be of self-blame, can be of negative past experience or just fears.

Fears of what you like to achieve in your future. A counselling session can provide you a safe space to talk. To talk about your problems with your issues your thoughts and emotions. The basic mode of counselling is through conversations. Conversations that promote your well being, that promote solutions. Counselling not just promote sharing but also provides you with a non-judgmental, unbiased and professional perspective. During a counselling session, you will not only be able to gain a lot more clarity on yourself, build your self-confidence and clarity on your life situations but you will also be able to learn a lot of tools, strategies and skills to manage more effectively your emotions your behaviours and your life decisions. Every individual is unique and so are their life stories and problems.

In your counselling session, your therapist will understand and collaborate with you to create an individual counselling plan personalized just for you. Reaching out to a professional for psychological growth and development is not a sign of weakness. Seeking help is in fact a sign of strength. Show strength and love towards yourself and reach out whenever you feel the need to talk to someone. I am available at my clinic Inner Light Counselling Center in Andheri West in Mumbai. You can also book an appointment or reach out on Lybrate.com

Thank you!

PRP Therapy And Prolozone Therapy
Good evening friends.

This is Dr. Nilay Shah. I run a medical tourism company, called as positive medical services. It s a medical tourism company, which provides one stop solution for many medical problems. The unique part of us, we are different as compared to modern medicine. We are into tolerant therapies. Various alternative therapies which I practised like chelation, ozone, PRP, prolozone, Vitamin C, etc. today we are going to talk about PRP therapy and prolozone therapy. Both of these therapies are very useful in ligament test and tender problems. PRP. That is the first thing about which we are going to talk about. The word itself, PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, Platelet Rich Plasma means its plasma which is rich in platelet. That means that is very useful in producing growth factors, which are produced naturally in the body. The way we do is we draw a certain amount of blood from the patient s vein, now this drug is taken into centrifugation machine. And we Centrifuge it. The moment we centrifuge it, there is a layer which is separated out, which is full of platelets. This layer, we take it in a syringe. And we inject at the place where there is a ligament tear or a tendon problem. Now how does it work? It works by producing growth factors, as I said earlier. These growth factors help in natural rebuilding or tissue repair. Most of the patients which we get for PRP are patients who are asked to go for arthroscopy or surgery. This is a natural way. Where our own tissue is helping it to rebuild again without any surgery or any other invasive procedures. And the best part is since you are using your own blood so there is no question of any side effects. Now, the next thing we are gonna talk about is Prolozone. Prolozone is very much similar to PRP, but the only difference is we are using a polorofent. Polorofrent is something like an irritant which produces a second inflammation to already a tissue which is already injured or damaged. Polorofrent and ozone, when we combine these together it is called as prolozone. Again the mechanism is very such similar to PRP. Whereby we are helping the tissue to get it repaired. The only difference is, in PRP what we were doing is we were using our own tissue for the repair, but here we are using prolofent, giving a second inflammation which is already injured and thereby giving it a second healing. Now, both this PRP and prolozone are very useful. In major cases where patients comes in a lot of pain, they don t want to go for a surgery, they are diabetic and there are certain complications for a surgery. This is the easiest and the safest way for getting the tissue repaired as compared to the convention medicine where you go for an arthroscopy or a tissue repair through a surgery. And since these therapies don t have any side effects as compared to convention medicine, people have been opting for it. And there is one of the major reason, throughout the world these therapies are getting popular. I hope I have been quite informative in explaining you guys PRP and proozone therapy. For more information. If you all at wich to contact me, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Thank you very much.
