Trickle-down anxiety: Study examines parental behaviors that create anxious children

Trickle-down anxiety: Study examines parental behaviors that create anxious children | End Anxiety! | Scoop.it
Parents with social anxiety disorder are more likely than parents with other forms of anxiety to engage in behaviors that put their children at high risk for developing angst of their own, according to a small study of parent-child pairs.

 

Anxiety is the result of a complex interplay between genes and environment, the researchers say, and while there's not much to be done about one's genetic makeup, controlling external factors can go a long way toward mitigating or preventing anxiety in the offspring of anxious parents.


"Children with an inherited propensity to anxiety do not just become anxious because of their genes, so what we need are ways to prevent the environmental catalysts -- in this case, parental behaviors -- from unlocking the underlying genetic mechanisms responsible for the disease," Ginsburg says.

Children model behaviour and if the behaviour they continually witness is worry, fear and anxiety then that unfortunately is what they will learn to do to.

The debate regarding whether nurture or nature plays a larger role in mental illness has been ongoing for sometime. Recent research though, has identified that these two factors work with each other and not against each other like previously thought. In regards to anxiety and the development of an anxiety disorder, the researchers of this article note a significant amount of research has found that the children of those with anxiety disorders may have a higher genetic predisposition for developing their own anxiety disorder than the children of those without an anxiety disorder. An additional component that was researched though, was the attitudes and behavioral habits of those parents with anxiety disorders; essentially, the effect that the environment these parents created for their children who already had higher predispositions to developing an anxiety disorder was closely examined. Using factors of parental warmth and affection, this research found that parents diagnosed with an anxiety disorder showed less warmth and affection towards their children, criticized them more often and expressed doubts about their child's ability to perform a task. Learning about genetic and environmental components and the implications they may have on the prevention of anxiety, particularly in childhood, is of utmost importance. Anxiety disorders often go unrecognized in childhood. Because of the likely delays in diagnosis and treatment, the child may be at higher risk for depression and poor academic performance not only in childhood, but into their adult years as well.

Loran Northey's insight:

Yes well there is a big difference between having a small inner fear that motivates you to do better and Anxiety. 

I agree positive stress can be beneficial if it propels you forward and creates motivation and momentum,

The problem or challenge occurs when those small thoughts of fear or worry that pop up every now then become the focus point of your thinking and that motivational fear turns into disabling anxiety, , meaning you can't concentrate, cant focus or retain information.

You then lose confidence, motivation and quite often the desire to do it at all! 

Anxiety can be crippling leaving the sufferer at best stuck but usually in some form of a cruel limbo, stuck in a trap of self -doubt and  suppressed panic and that is not good for anyone!

Hilary J.'s curator insight, February 13, 2014 8:49 PM

Anxiety disorders are on the rise, especially in western industrialized countries. It is reaching epidemic proportions that threaten the mental health of many in our society. Currently, the most popular approach is medication, followed by psychotherapy, or a combination of both. While medication is helpful, and can serve as a way to relieve debilitating symptoms quickly, it is not a long-term solution and can in fact increase the individual's risk of developing an addiction to the prescribed anti-anxiety medication. The medication approach, while useful initially, does not address the underlying causes of anxiety in the individual. Anxiety can sometimes be viewed as more of a symptom of something else, something deeper, that is occurring in the individual's life. When medication is used with no other intervention, the anxious individual is not cured, rather they receive the message that the feelings and thoughts that are occurring in their minds are 'bad' or 'wrong' and need to be avoided. Using only medication to treat anxiety is similar to putting a bandaid on a 12 inch laceration. It does not lend to long-term results. Instead of viewing anxiety as a mental illness that requires medication only, a healthier and more effective approach may be to see it as a disturbance in thought process that may take time to overcome and cannot, nor should not, be simply suppressed.

Derek Beres reveals years of crippling anxiety and the resulting experiences of flight-or-fight panic attacks. Blacking out simply out of fear, waking up in a stranger's lap and other adventures were not uncommon. While the myriad meditation and medication avenues helped a little along the way, there was one approach that proved most effective in managing fear: diving into those fears, bit by bit.


As a long-time proponent of most "face it directly" therapeutic approaches, I found the results achieved in this one man's life affirming. But the truth is, we cannot always improve our anxiety episodes by one simple fix focus. It's possible Beres' improvement techniques readied him for the "dive in" approach which finally set him on a more manageable path. 


Ignoring an ongoing problem doesn't make it go away, but working diligently and lovingly towards effective change, as Beres has done, is key. If you fancy the meditation solution for anxiety, you may appreciate this too: http://sco.lt/6YeuFF

Shaan White's curator insight, October 6, 2014 10:15 AM

In the years of working as a top level anxiety specialist on Harley Street I've spent my life studying various approaches. At times it can get confusing for us professionals with so many techniques and approaches. In a nutshell I discovered that although we as therapists vehemently defend our approach and methodologies there really is no one size fits all. Rather the best approach is a multi-faceted approach that is tailored to the client. However I would add that the concept of letting go of one's emotional attachment to the problem works well. Really it is a balancing act. Focusing on the positive can give us false hope, and focus on the negative can draw us down into that never ending spiral.  Therapy needs to be results driven, fast, effective with the client being an active participant in therapy and understanding that they must take consistent daily action to achieve the results they are searching for. Thank you for a great article:)

3 Surprising Ways a Deep Breath Can Reduce Your Anxiety | End Anxiety! | Scoop.it

Although we tend to discount the merits of taking a deep breath, there are three great reasons we should remember to take one now and again, especially when we’re nervous. Shallow breathing also signals the body to create more red blood cells in our bloodstreams which makes our hearts have to work harder and beat faster which then makes us feel more nervous and anxious.
