Phobias and anxiety disorders

Phobias and anxiety disorders are mental disorders with persistent manifestations of unmotivated, uncontrollable, involuntary obsessive fears in which a person experiences negative emotions and painful experiences.

Differences between phobia and fear

With a phobia, the reaction and clinical manifestations of pathopsychological and psychopathological symptoms are more pronounced, more often uncontrollable, and unmotivated.

On the other hand, fear is a motivated, controlled natural feeling based on past negative experiences of others or acquired as a result of upbringing. In psychology, a term is assumed that is colored by a negative emotional disorder.

Types of phobias and anxiety disorders

There are childhood, teenage and parental fears and phobias. There are also adult phobias that are not seen in children and adolescents.

Particularly noteworthy are fears associated with intelligence and manifested as a result of reflections on issues affecting the problems of human life and death. For example, the fear of death, time, the meaninglessness of human existence, since “everyone will eventually die.”

The physiological foundations of phobia and fear lie in a violation of the sensitivity of the functioning of the nuclei of the visual hillocks, sensory parts of the brain, and the nucleus of the amygdala (amygdala) complex, in which negative and positive affect are formed.

Of great importance is the presence in the anamnesis (pre-, peri- and postnatal periods) of psycho-traumatic factors that contribute to the release of hormones by the adrenal glands and negatively affect the human nervous system.
