Petersburg College ADHD 2 Abstract In this paper, the topic of ADHD is discussed. It will be explained what the criteria is for diagnosis is and different methods of treatment that can be explored.

Today, I’m going to be discussing the biological approach to treating phobic disorders, quite obviously in this method of treating these disorders, there are two types of chemotherapy (drugs) which are used. Firstly, anti-anxiety drugs are one of the two drugs which are prescribed to patients suffering with the disorders. Benzodiazepines are quite commonly used to help relieve symptoms of anxiety. Benzodiazepines work by slowing down activity of the central nervous system by acting as a ligand for GABA(a) receptors mimicking the response of the release of GABA in the brain causing similar effects of calmness/ decreased agitation and mild sedation through decreased excitatbility and reduced communication between neurons. Kahn et al (1986) supported the use of benzodiazepines and found that they were more effective than a placebo treatment in relieving anxiety.
As childhood progresses, the need for sleep decreases, but in adolescence it increases slightly, to around 9 or 10 hours a night. Circadian rhythms are also known to change which cause teenagers to feel naturally more awake later at night and have more difficulty getting up early (phase delay). A distinguishing feature of adolescent REM sleep is that in males it is sometimes accompanied by orgasm or ejaculation, which is significantly less likely at other ages.
Disorder Paper PSYCH/575 November 7, 2011 Dr. Bar-Navon Disorder Paper This paper I will compare and contrast three therapeutic interventions used to treat PTSD, which will be cognitive-behavioral therapies, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) medications, and Acupuncture therapy. I will compare measures of effectiveness, such as validity, efficacy, symptom, and recidivism. Next I will identify what approach to treating PTSD I would use, and explain why. I will examine neurophysiological underpinnings of PTSD. Last, I will examine attitudes towards the three treatments I have selected.

Insomnia is when a person has a hard time falling asleep, staying asleep, or a disturbance in the quality of sleep a person gets that will make them feel they are not well rested when they do wake.

It is typical during a sleep terror for a person to scream, sweat, have a rapid pulse and sit up in bed. The person having a sleep terror may appear to be awake, but are unable to communicate. Most people will not respond to soothing words or comfort, they may try to run away. This event will last 20 minutes or less, then the person will lie down and go back to
