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.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Hello Everyone! I am Dr. Vikas Deshmukh. I am a consultant psychiatrist at Manovikas Clinic, Vashi, Sec-17. Aaj hum baat krne vale hain ek naye disorder ke bare mei jiska naam hai obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). OCD ek psychological disorder hai, ek mansik bimari hai. Jisme patient ko ek hi tarha ke vichar baar baar aate hain. Aur vo vichar kam krne ke liye ek hi tarha ke action ko vo baar baar krte rehte hain. Ye disorder ki vjha se bahut sare patients ki life kafi hadd tak kharab hoti hai. Kafi hadd tak unka quality of life bigad jata hai. Bhut saare patients preshan rehte hain. To aaj is disorder ke baare mei thoda detail me jaante hain. To OCD me 2 chizen bhut common hoti hai. Ek nam me hi hai obsession or dusra compulsion. Obsession yani bar bar ek hi tarha ka vichar aana. Compulsion yanike patient vo vichar kam krne k lia kuch action leta hai ya koi behavior dikhata hai. Use compulsion bolte hain. Jaise obsession hai dirt ke bare mei. Ki bar bar mere hath gande hue hain, mera ghar ganda hai, mera body ganda hai. To aise me patient ke dimag mei aata hai ki saaf nhi hai mera hath. Is obession ki vajha se compulsion ye ho jata hai ki patient bar bar jake hath dhoyega. So, din mei 10-50 bar hath hi dhote rehta hai. Fir bhi uska ye thought kam nhi hota hai. Uske mann mei soch ayegi or vo hath dhoyega, relax lgega or fir hath jake dhoyega. To isi cycle me patient atka rehta hai. Dusra obsession rehta hai sexual content. Patient ko apne bare mei, apne close relative ke bare mei, jaise mummy, daddy, behan, unke bhagwan, unke bare mei kuch buri soch aati hai. Patient iss chiz se bhut disturb ho jata hai. Aur is se disturb na ho, iske liye patient ke mann mei apne aap ek thinking start hoti hai, mai aisa krunga to mujhe us chiz ka paap nhi lgega. Jaise mai 10 baar bhagwan ko namaskar krunga ya 3 bar namaskar krunga to mai kisi bhi side-effect se bach skta hun. 3rd is checking. Baar baar aisa lgta hai ki mene kahin gas ka button khula to nhi chora. Mene ghar ka darwaza lock krna to nhi chora hai. Mere computer ka button off to nhi kiya hai. OCD mei 10 bar har chiz check krne ke baad bhi doubt rehta hai. Kyuki vo satisfaction nhi aata hai. 4th is perfection, chizen arrange krna. Unko hmesha lgta hai ki ye table thik se arrange nhi hai. Ye thoda sa teda hai. Aur us thought ki vjha se bar bar usko thik krne mei lage rehte hain. To kafi sara quality time, energy ye sab compulsions mei jata hai jo bilkul bhi fruitful nhi rehta. Meri ek patient hai jo bartan dhone baithti hai to baar baar unhi bartan ko dhoti rhegi quki use lgta hai ki ye saaf nhi hai. Use ye satisfaction hi nhi hota tha ki bartan clean hue hain. To OCD ka ek cycle rehta hai. Unhe baar baar anxiety aata hai. Baar baar ye kam krne se unke haath me changes dikhayi dete hain. Dusra agar adults rhen to unhe lgta hai ki ye unnecessary thoughts hain. Mujhe inko control krna chaiye. Lekin bahut baar bachon mei ye samjh nhi aata hai. As a parent, or as a teacher, aap bachon ko smjhayein. Generally ye common rehta hai teenage me. 14-30 ki age me. 30 ke baad start hona thoda sa uncommon hai. Generally 30 se pehle ye bimari start hota hai. Kam se kam 2 saal ke bachon mei bhi paya gya hai. Bahut sare mere patients hain jo 5-7 saal ke bhi hain. Iske genetic kaaran hain. Apne relatives se ye bimari aap mei payi jati hai. OCD ka ek genes rehta hai jo parents ke through apne mei aay rehta hai. Stressful environment ki vajha se bhi kbhi kbhi OCD rehta hai. Biological matlb brain changes. Serotonin chemical hai jo vo satisfaction deta hai. Agar serotonin level kam ho jaye to satisfaction kahin na kahin nhi milta hai. Jiski vajha se baar bar vo vhi kam krta hai ki use satisfaction mile. Kbhi infections ki vajha se bhi OCD ho skta hai. To treatment iska kya hai. Treatment iska 3 tarike ka hai. Ek hai pharmacological treatment. Medicines jo doctor denge or is se bahut hadd tak OCD control kiya ja sakta hai. Dusra hai psychotherapy Psychotherapy mei cognitive behavioural therapy bahut important hai. Aur ye OCD mei bahut ache tarike se kaam karta hai. Teesra jo hum doctors nhi kar sakte but aap log kar skte ho hai family support. Kabhi aisa na bole ki itna ganda tu kaise soch skta hai. Aise vichar tere maan mei kaise aate hain. Patient ye jaan bhuj ke nhi krta hai. Ye bimari hai. Jaise typhoid aane se aapko fever aa skta hai. Vaise OCD hone se uski soch ho sakti hai. To apka support is treatment ke liye bahut jaruri hai. Agar aap ache se usko samjh lenge or ache se support krenge, to aise patients ke chances thik hone ke dugne ho jate hain. So, thank you very much for your patient listening. Mere bare mei aur janne ke liye ya fir appointment book karne ke liye, kindly go through Lybrate website. Thank you very much.
