Every pregnant woman should become acutely familiar with typical postpartum disorder symptoms and engage in open and candid discussions about them with family members. This dialogue may allow a loved one to recognize your postpartum disorder well before you realize it, yourself. The symptoms can range from mild to severe, starting with postpartum blues as the mildest. Postpartum depression requires treatment and postpartum psychosis is the most severe, requiring in-patient intervention.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, sometimes referred to simply as CBT, is one of many types of psychotherapy treatments that help individuals explore and take control over the interconnections between their thoughts, emotions and behaviour. Rigorous scientific studies have demonstrated CBT to be highly effective on individuals suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, phobias, etc.
Childhood is a time of exploring, playing and learning. It sets the stage for adolescence and adulthood. During this time, a child’s brain, and specifically, the prefrontal cortex, is not fully formed. Consequently, it leaves children unable to plan, control their impulses and emotions. Extreme stress simply exacerbates them. Child therapy helps in the face of such turbulence.
