Psychologists have given fancy names to the different types of anxiety, but they are all different versions of the same thing…fear of possible bad or threatening experiences happening in the future. Here are some of the more common ones:
Social Anxiety – fear of failure/mistakes, performing in front of others, authority figures, and of being judged or criticized.
Panic Disorder – fear of bodily sensations and panic attacks.
Separation Anxiety – fear of being separated from caregivers or loved ones.
Specific Phobia – fear of heights, elevators, spiders, etc.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder – fear of intrusive thoughts about germs, harm, morality, etc. and/or need to feel “just right.”
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – fear of traumatic memories from the past.
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (excessive, recurrent worrying) – fear of potential problems in the future.
