Question 1 (90 marks) Anxiety disorders are the most common group of psychiatric conditions

Sociology

Question 1 (90 marks)

Anxiety disorders are the most common group of psychiatric conditions. Anxiety disorders occur early in childhood with a median age of onset of 6 years. These disorders lead to significant impairment in academic, social, and family functioning. Although the study of anxiety in children and adolescents has increased in recent years, there are still many problems with the assessment of anxiety in this population. One of the major issues is the lack of correspondence among sources of information (i.e., teachers, parents. and children) with respect to diagnostic information.

a) Explain the difference between anxiety and anxiety disorders. Discuss the reasons why reliable and clinically valid assessment of anxiety disorders in children is a challenge. (40 marks, 450 words).  

Tips to answer a): You are expected to demonstrate a clear understanding of the differences between anxiety and anxiety disorders. You need to explain the challenges in reliable and clinically valid assessment of anxiety disorders among children.

Anxiety disorders are also very much “gateway” problems—when left untreated. Affected youths and children are at increased risk for the development of other emotional and behavioral difficulties and physical comorbidities. Moreover, poorly managed anxiety increases the risk of problematic substance use in adolescence and young adulthood. Anxiety disorders in adulthood are associated with sizably reduced quality of life, with many affected individuals showing even poorer mental well-being than individuals with diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, hypertension, and a host of other chronic physical conditions. Therefore, effective treatment for anxiety problems is a matter of great public health concern.

b) Determine the various treatment approaches for anxiety disorders. What treatment approaches seem most promising to you? (50 marks, 750 words).

Tips to answer b) Further you are expected to determine the various treatment approaches for anxiety disorders and argue for the most effective treatment approach.

You may discuss the TMA with your coursemates, however, the assignment must be written up independently. Do not share your notes, draft or final TMA with anyone before the marked TMAs are returned to you. Avoid plagiarism by giving yourself sufficient time to research and understand the material so that you can write up your assignment in your own words. Quotations should be used sparingly. Simply citing the source of ‘copied’ chunks of text does not excuse it from plagiarism. Do ensure that any paraphrasing is done appropriately (even if you use text from your own work that you have submitted as part of another assignment of the same or another course). The University takes a very serious view of plagiarism (passing off someone else’s ideas as your own, or recycling of contents from your own earlier marked TMA from the same course or another course) and collusion (submitting an assignment which is the same or very similar to another student’s). Both are very serious academic offences. Please refer to the Student Handbook on the penalties of plagiarism or collusion. You are strongly advised to submit your TMA early, check the plagiarism report yourself, and if needed revise and resubmit your TMA before the submission deadline.

Although the study of anxiety in children and adolescents has increased in recent years, there are still many problems with the assessment of anxiety in this population. One of the major issues is the lack of correspondence among sources of information (i.e., teachers, parents. and children) with respect to diagnostic information. a) Explain the difference between anxiety and anxiety disorders.

Therefore, effective treatment for anxiety problems is a matter of great public health concern. b) Determine the various treatment approaches for anxiety disorders. What treatment approaches seem most promising to you? (50 marks, 750 words) Note: A minimum of 5 academic journal articles published from 2010 onwards are required. General advice a) You are expected to demonstrate a clear understanding of the differences between anxiety and anxiety disorders. You need to explain the challenges in reliable and clinically valid assessment of anxiety disorders among children. Further you are expected to determine the various treatment approaches for anxiety disorders and argue for the most effective treatment approach. b) You need to provide a Reference list at the end of your assignment (last page), which shows all the references you have cited in your answers, the textbook or any published material like books, journals or periodicals.

Reference to relevant research studies and examples should be rewarded accordingly. Students have been advised that presenting an argument with supporting evidence and critical evaluation will make for a better essay than a descriptive essay. This assignment requires some description but it goes on to ask for more analytical, argument-driven material and this is where marks are to be earned. Students are reminded to cite their sources and provide complete references. The essay should begin with an introduction that will outline the materials to be covered and what the basic argument will be. Students also need to demonstrate the skill of being concise to fit the material into the word limit of 1200 words.
