Part II ISQ Club - Neurosis

19 posts in this topic

20 Part II ISQs on two topics will be posted twice a week. You are encouraged to post a reply in the thread, stating whether you think an ISQ is true or false and why (eg. a short explanation, with reference to the textbook you used). Please only deal with one ISQ in each post and include the question as the first line of your post. All ISQs are taken from previous posts by Forum members.

In a few days this ISQ Club thread will be moved to the Question Bank board. If you submit an answer, your status will be changed to 'Question Bank member' and you will be able to see the Question Bank board. Please allow up to 48 hours for this change to happen.

1. Generalised anxiety disorder is called 'nervous shock' in law. true

Many illustrations of human foibles found plaintiffs for 'nervous shock.' This label refers to a wide range of recognized psychiatric illnesses such as phobic anxiety, neuroses and post-traumatic stress disorder, which are more than simply grief, upset or unhappiness. It is misleadingly inaccurate for us to use this label, as it tends to disguise a very serious damage,[4] which has elements of greater subtlety than in the case of ordinary physical injury.[

2. Factitious disorders are feigned illnesses for financial gain . False

3. Obsessions respond better than rituals in OCD False

4. The affective state is normal in depersonalisation False

5. Extroverts have increased autonomic arousal False

1. Generalised anxiety disorder is called 'nervous shock' in law.

Answer: false

the following is a definition of nervous shock-

'if we do not return to normality after an accident caused by the defendant's breach of duty, and start suffering from a mental illness or a personality change, the law classifies this as nervous shock.'

Nervous Shock in the legal sense refers to a wide range of recognised psychiatric illnesses such as phobic anxiety, neuroses and post traumatic stress disorder which are more than simply grief, upset or unhappiness for example.
