Social Phobia

Social phobia is a common sentiment in the life of every human being with that can protect us from the dangers for examples: we have to walk alone in a solitary place or dark can be afraid of anyone or anything that may harm, however the fear that can We feel will cause us to be alert, and soon we’re looking for a place to get to cover now and if we defend the fear in imposes a sense of alert.

Public speaking is crucial for them. Those who have these problems often fail to make friends are isolated cry a lot and can’t get out for nothing and always think someone is analyzing, watching with critical looks always feeling inferior to others has no prospects of life can’t see past are closed each other feels humiliated, rejected That often makes people with social phobia do not get married, financially independent, living in a permanent state of crisis and complete social isolation and in the most extreme cases, they may not leave their rooms for months.

The life of a social phobia is a truly harrowing life that is strongly associated with severe depression and suicidal ideation.

“The phobia, according to Ana b. Babu (2011, p. 25). Is the fear that a person feels unmanageable of certain situations or objects “.

At different times this feeling could hinder the walk so your dreams and projects will be interrupted.

Gradually the phobia will taking care of your life and the motivation and enthusiasm will decreasing every day so will making an uncontrollable disease and will continue destroying even this has itself a defensive instinct.

If you look at the human being, in General, we can see that the degree of anxiety and phobia is a medium that characterizes each way. With that they realize that they are being threatened in various social situations and potentially unable to speak in public. According to Ana b. Babu (2011, p. 21).

Only when the abnormal (pathological) fear to interfere markedly in the daily life of the individual, with specific social sectors losses, affective and professional, is that he feels the need to seek expert help. (2011).

Phobia sufferers come across difficult situations soon come to crises and they feel with the passage of time an enormous fear and is usually accompanied by various symptoms, fear of dying, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, chest pain among others. According to psychologist Neuza Corassa, Member of the Brazilian Association of psychotherapy and Behavioral Medicine,

“Fear works as a flag, helping the person to prepare for any situation, such as, for example, give a lecture. However, the scared beyond measure is considered a phobia, that immobilizes people, causing them to circumvent the problem. (2006)

When you start studying and need to present orally works is already beginning to be dominated by symptoms and there is inert, don’t talk to her for the same can’t even talk is like a white on the head and you can’t even articulate the thoughts and hopeless begins in tears only.

Looks like it’s all over and so flees and goes away even before you finish with that feeling of defeat of inability and failure. Same like what does she can’t overcome, many times the parents for not understand think it’s her freshness.

This form of treatment began to be used with schizophrenic patients, caregivers being extended from the 90, to other pathologies such as bipolar affective disorder and depression (Yacubian, 1997).

United families and cultivate healthy appreciation among its members so the secret to growing a health and can help one of your dear ones. Can never miss an opportunity to be close to that you love so you can help that you need.

According to the author (Sztamfater, Savoy, 2010)

A study with patients with social phobia and his family found a significant difference between patients who adhered to treatment and those who did not participate: the family. This seems to be a weight variable for carrier recovery, as noted in the literature and discussed in the article. ”

If that carrier does not express their fears and concerns as you can receive the incentive you need. If there is good communication and patience there is no emotional connection and consequence will not get satisfactory results.

Methods and data collection

The research of bibliographical nature, that is, according to Wagner, (2011) has been held consequently through bibliographic readings about the social phobia theme so the articles were taken in the following databases: Scielo.

On the other hand, it was identified that the majority of studies is of theoretical character.  According to Wagner, 2011 presents a structure of five dramas: public speaking, interaction with people in position of authority, interaction with opposite sex, interacting with unknown people, dislike, be in evidence. For completion of the work was done at first reading books and articles that led and paved the way the problem of research and the questions related to the theme chosen.

CRAWFORD & TAYLOR (2000, p20) State:

Oddly enough about 60% of people have social phobia. “Most of them or you’re sitting home too frightened to go out, or trying to deceive while dead inside” With it, noted that shyness is more present in society than people think. As to the origin of shyness, 72% of respondents replied that she is directly linked to the fear of facing certain situations. For CRAWFORD & TAYLOR (2000, p 11), “The Dillards frequently believe that the people who interact are focusing on your bad points”.

 According to Michael Lucas (2006 p45), phobic individuals have a decreased quality of life, premature school drop-out, lack of social skills, displeasure in the relationship with friends and leisure, high unemployment rate, low presence in universities and social isolation of the subject, in the most serious cases. It is estimated high prevalence of social anxiety disorder in the population, being the most dominant social phobia anxiety disorder.

People suffering from this evil have bouts of panic directly and begin to feel sensations of fight or flight in your imagination she will imagine catastrophic moments. This situation is perceived by the brain and so these people avoid the most.
