Have you ever met someone who acted a bit strange? Did you perhaps meet them at a party and found that trying to make conversation with them was like pulling teeth?Perhaps you work with someone that, when you speak with them, they can’t or won’t make eye contact with you?Or have you attended an event and felt overwhelmed and lacked self-confidence, thinking that the way you were dressed, how you looked, and even what you said was being judged?All three of these scenarios explain some of the many behaviors that a person with a social anxiety disorder (also known as SAD) displays.The causes of this mental disorder begins in childhood, usually at the age when a child begins puberty, but sometimes, it strikes younger children, usually because of a parent or parents who have social anxiety or because they are brought up in a strict, unyielding environment, observe social anxiety behavior or have direct experience with the condition at a young age.Social anxiety disorder (SAD) affects approximately 15 million adults in the United States.Almost 50 percent of all people who are diagnosed with SAD are also prone to and diagnosed with depression. Other effects of social anxiety disorder are negative thoughts, poor social skills that lack improvement, sensitivity to criticism, low self-esteem, and self-medication with alcohol and drugs.Even though you may think you don’t suffer from SAD, there may be someone who is a family member, a friend, or a colleague at work who may show signs of this disorder.Also, realize that not every person who has this condition exhibits extreme behavior. There are those people who may or may not realize they have SAD, because there are levels that are mild and moderate.

Every Trich in the Book:Overcoming my Hair Pulling Disorder Cara Ward
Violence by young boys and adolescents is on the rise in America´s suburbs, small towns, and rural communities. In light of recent school-based shootings, it´s now clear that no matter where people live or how hard parents try, chances are their children are going to school with troubled boys capable of getting guns and pulling triggers. Building on his pioneering work as a psychologist, James Garbarino shows why young men and boys have become increasingly vulnerable to violent crime, and how lack of adult support poses a real threat to children´s basic safety. Dr. Garbarino addresses the wide range of issues that boys of every temperament and from every background may have to face, and outlines the steps parents, teachers, and public officials can take to keep all children safer. He holds out hope and solutions for turning kids away from violence - before it is too late. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cotter Smith.
