Given the opportunity to study an area of psychology I would choose clinical psychology. Helping people with psychological disorders and helping them understand themselves would be a great achievement and the wealth of knowledge can go both ways for the subject and doctor. There are many areas of study when reading about physiological disorders, one stick’s out like a sore thumb and that would be social anxiety disorder. Social anxiety is the fear of interaction with other people that brings on self-consciousness, feelings of being negatively judged and evaluated, and as a result, leads to avoidance. Just the task of public speaking can cause a waterfall of symptoms that can ruin somebody

All people use defense mechanisms, whether they be consciously or unconsciously. Anxiety may arise from an intense situation or even past experience. It is then the ego's job to displace anxiety so as to protect the rest of the mind. Through defense mechanisms such as sublimation, repression, fantasy, compulsive fun-seeking, and negativism, the ego eliminates anxiety caused by surroundings which in effect tries to prevent insanity. Fantasy is a device used to thwart reality. It involved the imagination of a fantasy life for the individual to crawl into, in essence, to escape reality. It is needed to be utilized by everyone in order to maintain sanity. If the mind were exposed to the

Psychiatric Disorders, Diseases, and Drugs
Many people suffer from some form of a psychiatric disorder, which affects a person’s ability to behave in way that is deemed normal by society. Several mental disorders have extreme effects on the mental health of those who suffer from them. It is estimated that as much of 3.3 percent of the U.S. population is found in a thirty day period to suffer from extreme psychological distress (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2012). Schizophrenia, depression, mania, anxiety disorder, and Tourette syndrome are the top five psychiatric disorders, and the effects of each on a person’s mental health range from mild to severe.

Adrian Holdsworth was a 39-year-old Caucasian woman with two children (a son, age 12, and a daughter, age 7). Since obtaining her bachelor’s degree in business administration 8 years ago, Adrian has worked as a bank manager. Recently she had become increasingly worried about her ability to concentrate and remember things at work, and she went to her family doctor for an evaluation. Finding no physical basis for her concentration and memory difficulties, Adrian’s doctor referred her to a neuropsychologist for a more detailed assessment of her cognitive functioning. The neuropsychologist deemed Adrian’s complaints to be anxiety related, and thus he encouraged her to seek out

Analyzing Psychological Disorders
Psychological disorders are always being researched and new treatments are being developed. Biopsychology is an important field because understanding the processes that occur in the body can lead to more effective drugs and relief for many people suffering from psychological disorders. Schizophrenia, anorexia nervosa, and anxiety are all psychological disorders that psychologists must deal with on a regular basis. Understanding these disorders is important for the health and well-being of patients.

in what causes schizophrenia. It is called the dopamine theory; it states that schizophrenia is caused by too much dopamine in the brain (Pinel, 2007). As chlorpromazine helps block dopamine receptors this would then help reduce schizophrenic behaviors. The dopamine theory suggests that schizophrenia is caused by hyperactivity in the dopamine receptors. Medications that bond to this receptor would be the most advantageous and helpful to help alleviate schizophrenic symptoms (Pinel, 2007).
Anxiety disorder and anorexia are two more psychological disorders. There are five main types of anxiety disorders. These would be generalized anxiety, phobic anxiety, panic, obsessive-compulsive, and

Panic Attacks in Young Adults (18-29)
Right before I left for college I experienced the single most terrifying thing that has ever happened to me. This experience and the fear of it happening again stalked me day and night. It is something that has stayed with me and that I deal with and fear on a daily basis. It wasn’t until years later that I sought professional help and found out how common this very personal, ground-shattering experience actually was. I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia.

Bowen’s approach has eight major concepts. One of them, Triangles/ Triangulation refers to when the system holds anxiety in an attempt to get to a state of equilibrium. This triangle, which consists of a three-person emotional configuration, is the basis of a secure emotional system. In a three-person system, anxiety has more room so to speak. Researchers consider triangles as a natural part of the way living systems function. Triangles can have negative or positive outcomes depending on how the individuals behave and deal with anxiety (Kerr,2000).

The age of the witness can affect the accuracy of recall, Valentine and Coxon (1997) studied this and it showed that the age of the witness can have an effect on the accuracy of eyewitness testimony.
Anxiety can also affect focus. Psychologists tend to believe that small increases in anxiety and arousal may increase the accuracy of memory, but high levels have a negative effect on accuracy. In violent crimes (where anxiety and arousal are likely to be high), the witness may focus on central details (e.g. a weapon) and neglect other peripheral details.

for students who are working full time while they are enrolled in a university. Even when there is time to get to all required classes, additional time is needed to complete assignments and research. If either work or study are excessively stressful for the student, the quality of both may suffer. Due to these stresses, the drop-out rate among part-time students is higher than the rate of other students. For a student who already has a job and not enough time to study, the temptation to simply give up on graduating can be great.

Children demand a lot of time and leaving them in day care for prolonged periods of time can cause feelings of guilt and anxiety in parents who are spending all of their time at work or at school.

not be such a good and productive ordeal.
There is a possibility of abusing what our mind is capable of imagining. For example, a person might wake up one day and find him/herself imagining immense rejection or pain coming from those around him/her and s/he might continue feeling this even though it is mostly just made-up by the mind. Often, these cases would lead to the said person developing anxiety or other types of mental conditions. Other results of imagination abuse would be replacing old memories with false one or hallucinating, both of which might be due to some psychological effect or imbalance in the body’s chemicals.
Therefore, with the daily utilization of the mind’s capability of imagining, limitations of its usage must also not be forgotten in order to avoid any undesirable outcomes.
