About this Course

In this course, Prof. Femi Oyebode (University of Birmingham) discusses anxiety and anxiety-related disorders. In module one, we explore the general nature of emotions and how we experience them, before moving on to think about anxiety and anxiety disorders more specifically in module two. The remaining modules are dedicated to different types of anxiety-related disorders and stress-related conditions. We discuss phobias, including specific phobia, social phobia and agoraphobia, in module three. Module four looks at obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and its relation to anxiety, while module five focusses on stress-related conditions such as acute stress disorder (ASD), adjustment disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
