Anxiety Neurosis

Anxiety neurosis is one of the most common forms of psychoneurosis. It is a series of symptoms due to faulty adaptation of stress.

Causes of Anxiety neurosis
Mental conflicts and Frustration: According to O'Kelly, the root causes of anxiety neurosis are mental conflicts and frustration. Whatever the causes of anxiety neurosis can be said, to explain it fully in the case of any patient and the truth is that in particular circumstances one or more even all of these causes may be present at the root of anxiety neurosis. Repression of the self-assertive tendency: According to Adler, man's most important and most intense impulse is to assert himself. If the persons ego does not develop properly and he instead develops a sense of inferiority then his self-assertive is repressed, and this leads to development of an anxiety neurosis.

Suppression of sexual desire: According to Fraud, wherever the libido of a person becomes excited but finds no satisfaction and is instead repressed takes the fonn of anxiety, but the causes does not become known to the patient. Further, he says that when a man or women is sexually excited but finds no creative outlet for the libido he becomes a prey to anxiety neurosis to mental conflict arising from suppression of libido. But not all psychiatrists see eye to eye with Freud in this connection. Emotional conflict: According to McDougall and Gardon, the anxiety neurosis can arise as a result of conflicts between two emotions.
