ABSTRACT

Objectives: The present study aims to explore the course of generalized anxiety disorder and to assess the application of psycho-social management in alleviating the symptoms associated with generalized anxiety disorder and to improve the client’s overall functioning. Research design: Case study. Sample and method: This study was carried out in Hyderabad and 33 years old married male was included. Treatment plan was formulated according to psycho-social management wherein different management techniques were utilised to modify the client’s generalized anxiety beliefs and the associated behaviours. Result: Findings of the assessment showed significant distress and impairment in overall functioning. Stressor activates his dysfunctional belief which shifts his attention to minor perceptual disturbance and results in misinterpretation of these trivial variations. Psycho-social management techniques successfully restructured his dysfunctional beliefs and remarkably improved his functioning. Conclusion: On the basis of results, it can be ascertained that psycho-social management is an effective approach to treat generalized anxiety disorder.
