ANXIETY DISORDERS

Humans, like many animals, possess a highly developed sense of danger in our environment. In its most basic form, our awareness of these threats is anxiety. Our 'fight or flight' response can be highly beneficial, but in the 21st Century, this state of anxiety in some people can become a constant state of mind, and a real limitation to a person's ability to function well. In this program we take a comprehensive look at anxiety disorders including generalised anxiety, panic, post traumatic, and obsessive compulsive disorders and phobias. With excellent illustrations and input from leading experts, this is a wide-ranging examination of anxiety today.

    DELIRIUM, DEMENTIA AND DEPRESSION

    Delirium and dementia are two of the most common mental disorders elderly people face. Depression is also common in elderly people and often presents with symptoms similar to dementia or delirium. The differentiation between these three conditions can be difficult because many symptoms overlap. As the cause of so much suffering and discomfort, it is important these conditions are effectively addressed by medical staff. This program defines these conditions by detailing symptoms and speaking to medical experts. Potential risk factors, causes of delirium and assessment criteria for all three conditions are outlined along with a brief summary of management strategies.

    DON'T GROW OLD: HOLDING BACK THE YEARS

  • What, exactly, is aging? Can we stop or alter it?
  • What would it take to have a long and healthy life?
  • How much do our emotions and attitudes about aging affect how we age?
  • How close are we to finding an elixir of youth?

    This informative, new program poses all of these questions and more in its broad attempt to examine and understand the mysteries of aging. From a study of healthy centenarians to a five-year-old with progeria (rapid-aging disease) to truths and myths about antioxidants, gene research, and oxidative stress, researchers share their often surprising findings. (Included is a prominent mind-over-body study which reveals some life-changing results for the participants.) We also meet three generations of one family, ranging in age from 2 to 93, who provide candid thoughts on heredity and aging.

    This discussion-starting DVD reminds us that the definition of aging needs to be open to being "re-defined". In the words of one of the researchers, "We have enormous control over our health and well-being that we're only beginning to become aware ofK"

    MANAGING BEHAVIOURS OF CONCERN IN THE ELDERLY

    A high percentage of elderly people in professional care suffer from dementia, a psychiatric illness or a specific brain injury. Recently, extensive research has been undertaken into understanding the origins of behaviours of concern, focusing on addressing the variety of underlying causes. In this program we investigate defining and understanding behaviours of concern, types of behaviours and unmet needs, assessing and problem solving, possible triggers and management strategies.

    CODEPENDENCY, EMOTIONAL VIOLENCE, AND DOMESTIC ABUSE
