Anxiety and social phobia in adolescents: when disorders are hidden

Abstract

Anxiety is a response that all human beings have and appears when our brain perceives a threat that puts our lives at risk. Therefore, anxiety prepares us for what may happen, looking for solutions that put us safe. This experience has an important adaptive value for survival.

The conflict arises when our brain triggers the alarms and we feel palpitations, sweat, choking and even panic. These symptoms paralyze and create a threatening world in everyday situations, which we interpret as a real danger.

Abstract

Family caregivers of people with dementia usually have high levels of anxiety, depression, and overload symptoms, and are reasons for being considered a clinically vulnerable population. The objective of the present review is to examine the effectiveness of the mindfulness-based stress reduction program (MBSR) applied to this population. A search was made in the electronic databases for randomised trials with pre-post measurement in the last 15 years. The methodological quality was obtained using the Jadad scale. Finally, 5 articles were included, obtaining a sample of 309 participants. The score on the Jadad scale was 3.4 out of 5. In general, the MBSR program reduces anxiety and depression symptoms, as well as overload levels in the post-measurement. However, some studies showed a significant reduction in the psychological effects of the program during follow-up. More empirical studies are needed that can establish a more homogeneous protocol that reduces the ambiguity of some results.
