Modern psychiatry fails to adequately explain its own subject: the human person.
For example: what is a mind, a heart, a soul, a psyche, inherently?
What is the thing that thinks?
What is the thing that feels?
Following on from these questions:
Are thoughts and feelings the essence of the subject, or merely expressions?
It then follows:
If thoughts and feelings are causing distress to the subject, and they are not the essence of the subject, why does the subject not just ignore them, for example, if he cannot change them?
If they are too strong to ignore, perhaps they can be de-energised?
With this dispassionate approach, and modern psychological techniques, the following can be addressed. Most are rooted in chronic, irrational anxiety, which in turn is rooted in stresses forced on the subject in times of vulnerability and/or weakness: infancy, childhood, puberty and unusual adult events e.g. the experience of combat:
Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Phobias e.g agoraphobia
Depression, anxiety and stress
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Traumatic life events
Bereavement and loss
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)
