Family Brain C-13 Review counseling provides many benefits to both child and family members when seeking options for treating ADHD without medication. ADHD impacts the entire family.Counselors can provide emotional support to both child and parents; additionally, counselors help parents develop tools to modify inappropriate behaviors.Often children with ADHD display symptoms of depression and family counseling will provide the needed support to deal with those feelings.Other Therapies: Many therapies are available that support controlling ADHD without meds. Behavioral therapy teaches parents techniques on controlling defiance, arguments, and appropriate consequences for bad behavior.To a person who has a needle phobia, the two most scariest places in the world is their dentist and their doctor. Even the mere thought of having to go and see one of these two people can initiate many physical sensations short of a full-blown panic attack.Most likely, someone who is a needle phobic will try to convince themselves that the benefits of the injection outweigh the fear and perceived discomfort. Mind you however, due to the nature of a needle phobia, people often exaggerate the level of discomfort.If you suffer from one or some of these symptoms whenever you begin to think about a needle, then there is the chance you have to some degree, a needle phobia.Developing a fear of needles quite often occurs during our childhood years. Often well-meaning family members will discuss having a needle around children, and on occasion making the experience sound nothing short of a psycho movie. To a young impressionable child, such recounts can become quite vividly impressed within their subconscious mind.Over time, that concern is reinforced through experience and mental rumination, until eventually the phobia is so strong it breaks through to conscious awareness and the person has an epiphany of their fear of needles."I've got one!" Anne came running into my office after meeting with a client. Anne is a fellow psychotherapist with many years of experience but after reading my last article on Dissociative Identity Disorder she had realized that she may be overlooking DID as a possibility. With her expanded understanding Anne observed the signs, gently prodded her client with open-ended questions and found him telling her more than she ever expected. She didn't share her thoughts on the diagnosis with the client but the client's relief was palpable. His way of organizing his experience was being accepted by someone who didn't show the panic he often feels. Anne had her first DID client.
