Objectives
~ Identify the common symptoms for anxiety and depression-based disorders
~ Learn how a positive change in one area or symptom can have positive effects on all symptoms or areas.
~ Explore
~ The function of each of those symptoms
~ The potential causes of each of those symptoms
~ Interventions for each of those symptoms
Review
~ Everything you feel, sense, think and do is caused by communication between your nerves with the help of chemical messengers called neurotransmitters.
~ “Higher order” thinking is able to over-ride sensory input and tell us there is a threat when none exists, or that there isn’t a threat when there really is.
~ Think of your brain as a computer processor. It simply does what it is told, based on the information that it has.
What are symptoms
~ Symptoms are your physical and emotional reactions to a threat.
~ Symptoms are designed to protect you.
~ They are not bad or good. They just are.
~ Instead of trying to make the symptom go away, it may help to:
~ Understand the function of them
~ Identify alternate, more helpful, ways to deal with the threat
Transtheoretical and Transdiagnostic
~ Transtheoretical means approaching a person’s presenting issues/symptoms and considering emotional, cognitive, physical, interpersonal and environmental explanations for it.
~ Transdiagnostic means that many symptoms are common to multiple issues such as sleep changes, appetite changes, irritability, fatigue and lack of pleasure.
~ By examining the WHOLE person and not getting stuck on treating a particular diagnosis we are freed up to really address the individual’s issues
