Here at Columbus girls Academy we can help your daughter in her struggle with Anxiety Disorders, sometimes called Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This is an enduring condition marked by a harsh and incapacitating height of fear, accompanied by panic attacks; phobias brought on by specific things or situations, and may comprise social anxiety disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It can be just mental and emotional or perhaps together with physical symptoms (i.e.: extreme sweating, fast pulse, difficulty sleeping). Full-blown attacks can feel paralyzing to those who are suffering.
Columbus Girls Academy Helps Girls Overcome Anxiety Disorder
Diagnosis and treatment for Anxiety Disorders early on is extremely significant, so that the anxiety does not escalate to the point of clinical depression, perhaps leading to self-medicating with drugs, or other injurious behaviors.
Your daughter’s treatment approach might include one or more therapies. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the more helpful means of treatment for high-level anxiety. That approach is focused on seeing thought patterns that can lead to anxiety, and then preventing negative behaviors by teaching her new responses to those triggering events.
As parents, it may be difficult to comprehend the underlying causes that elicit such responses but with early diagnosis and professional help, Anxiety Disorder is generally treated with fairly high rates of success.
