Anxiety and Stress-Related Disorders

by Helen Farrell, MD

Anxiety and stress-related disorders are increasingly common and recognized among populations worldwide. They are also extremely debilitating. Many hypotheses attempt to explain the pathophysiology of these conditions, but the exact mechanisms are unknown. What is known, however, is these disorders can cause significant morbidity to patients and drastically impair quality of life, so steps should be taken to treat patients comprehensively. This may involve the use of nonpharmacologic strategies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, or pharmacologic anxiolytic therapies.

Great Lecture
By Neuer N. on 07. April 2023 for PTSD: Management

Very clear and to the point. But gives understanding from a beginning to an ending which builds an overall picture.

Great lecture
By Nicholas K. on 22. May 2020 for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

the topic is very well structured I must say. Great lecturer!

Not satisfactory
By Noah S. on 04. January 2020 for OCD: Types, Assessment and Treatment

I gave this rating due to the fact that the lecturer reads from the slides and often gets sidetracked from actually explaining the material. This gives the impression that there is a very poor understanding of the material being taught as it simply does not flow naturally. The slides are somewhat descriptive and that makes this series passable.

Great breakdown - and good review for benzodiazepines
By Katelyn T. on 30. March 2019 for Anxiolytics

This video provides a wonderful breakdown of the pros and cons of different treatment options, I especially enjoyed the explanation of different types of benzos. Thank you!
