Digital Treatment May Help Reduce Anxiety

by on September 12, 2013

If you are someone who likes to stay up to date on the news — especially news related to anxiety disorders — you have probably noticed the recent interest in using technology to facilitate treatment.

There are many new forms of “high-tech” treatment, including phone applications for people who have Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), immersive virtual reality programs that allow people with phobias to face their fears without being in any real danger, and Internet-based therapy programs which connect people with anxiety disorders and other mental health issues to capable professionals who can help them. There are even games younger people who have anxiety conditions can play on their digital devices. These games are interactive and fun, and they teach kids and teens valuable coping skills and relaxation techniques they can use.

These new developments are helping people to bypass the issues created by physical distance. It is now possible for someone in Iowa to receive treatment from a top psychologist in California. This idea need not be limited to people within the same country, either. People who have access to technology in countries where mental health advances are less developed can also be connected to specialists in other nations.

A recent study from the University of Sussex in England is revealing how a specific form of virtual treatment can be used to help people who have problems with high anxiety or negative body image. This technology may prove significant for these individuals.

I would think they have to be an advantage to the rescue services in accidents as they wouldnt see people if there was a fire but would see the badge from the outside, but makes you wonder if they would rescue baby first

I love this! If I win it I’m going to hang it over my baby’s changing table because he likes to celebrate getting a clean booty and he would definitely love the pattern on the blue pieces. So cool you are doing this, Summer

En esto de la debilidad también tiene que ver lo psicológico, quiza eso también afecte lo físico, por eso muchos equipos de fútbol gastan en Psicologos, actualmente conozco el caso de la Selección Italiana, ya que invierte psicologicamente mucho en Mario Balotelli (no se si asi se escribe), lo hacen para que su rendimiento no baje.Y si un atleta no es mejor que otros solo por tener mejor corporeidad, un atleta se define mejor por la suma de sus cualidadesSaludos Sergio, pásala bien

You have quite a gardening process, which seems to work well. The raised beds are neat and nicely organized, making the garden orderly and really attractive.
