Anxiety Disorders can take a variety of forms. The common feature of anxiety disorders is an experience of excessive fear and anxiety that is accompanied by related disturbances in behavior. An anxiety disorder occurs when an individual experiences excessive or persistent anxiety that is beyond normal experiences. Some of the more common Anxiety Disorders include:
Separation Anxiety Disorder
The most common feature of this disorder is marked by an excessive or inappropriate amount of anxiety around being separated from those people an individual is close to or attached to.
The most common aspect of this disorder is a significant anxiety around a specific situation or object. For example, fear of flying can be a phobia.
Social Anxiety Disorder
The most common feature of this disorder is an intense fear of being in social situations where a person may feel judged or scrutinized by others.
People with panic disorder have recurrent panic attacks. The panic attacks can vary greatly in both frequency and severity, but when they occur the panic attacks are generally experienced as intense fear.
One of the most common features of this disorder is an avoidance of situations and places where a person fears that they may become trapped and unable to receive help. For example, a person with agoraphobia may avoid being in grocery stores because they become fearful of being trapped and having an anxiety attack while in the store.
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
A common feature of Generalized Anxiety Disorder is an excessive worry and anxiety about events or activities that are out of proportion to the actual events. For example, an individual with Generalized Anxiety Disorder may worry uncontrollably about their family, job, finances, and/or health to the point where the worry and fears begin to interfere with their ability to function.
