Risk Factors for Anxiety Disorders in Children and Adolescents. October 16, 2022

In the October 11, 2022 issue of JAMA, Screening for Anxiety in Children and Adolescents, the writer states that certain groups of this population are at increased risk of anxiety disorder, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) youth and older children (aged 12-17 years).

The article goes on to recommend treatment for anxiety in children and adolescents with cognitive behavior therapy and medication as the solution.

This is a myopic view and is symptomatic of the state of cluelessness – the lack of social perspective – that the public, in general, and the psychiatric profession, in particular, have when they overlook the emotional plague’s destructiveness of what is happening in today’s increasingly anti-authoritarian society.

The article is an example of people’s ocular problem, of their focusing on the symptoms of the social disease and not on the underlying disease process. The rise in the social symptoms in young people are the result of a single catastrophic event, the transformation of American social order from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian and its disintegration on all social levels that began over fifty years ago. The breakdown will continue on its destructive path until responsible people, not politicians, but those in the medical and social sciences familiar with the necessary knowledge of social orgonomy to address what is happening to our society.
