Agapé Helps Boys With Anxiety Disorder
We can help your son in his battle with Anxiety Disorder, which is sometimes referred to as Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This is a chronic condition marked by a severe and debilitating level of fear, which may be characterized by panic attacks; specific phobias (fears) triggered by certain things or situations, and may include social anxiety disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It can be purely mental and emotional, or possibly include physical symptoms (i.e.: trouble difficulty sleeping, excessive sweating, rapid pulse). Full-blown attacks can feel paralyzing to those who are suffering. Typically, a diagnosis requires that the anxiety last a minimum of six months.
Agapé Boarding School – We Can Help Your Son With Anxiety Disorder
Early Diagnosis and treatment for Anxiety Disorder is tremendously important, so that the anxiety does not continue escalating to the point of clinical depression, possibly leading to self-medicating with drugs, alcohol or other damaging behaviors.
Your son’s treatment approach might include one or more therapies. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the more effective means of treatment for high-level anxiety. That therapeutic approach is focused on recognizing thought patterns that can lead to anxiety, and then preventing negative behaviors by teaching him new responses to those triggering events.
As parents, it may be difficult to grasp the underlying causes that trigger such responses but with early diagnosis and professional help, Anxiety Disorder is generally treated with fairly high rates of success.
