Recently I had the pleasure to be involved in the Science of Psychotherapy podcast and discussed 10 causes of anxiety and depression. These 10 causes have been discussed in my blog previously. I must say that when it comes to depression and anxiety, there are more than these 10 causes and I will offer an updated version to include other causes soon. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy listening to the podcast.
Most children with paediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome (PANS) or paediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal disease (PANDAS) are misdiagnosed as having a psychiatric illness, behaviour problems or parenting/family dynamic concerns. Many go through a number of psychiatric medications and therapies with minimal improvement and many progressively get worse.
