    Taxonomy Code: YF-5000.5050-170.15

    A depressive disorder (also known as dysthymia or dysthymic disorder) that is characterized by a chronically depressed mood that occurs most of each day more days than not for at least two years accompanied by at least two additional depressive symptoms including poor appetite or overeating, insomnia, hypersomnia, low energy or fatigue, low self-esteem, poor concentration or difficulty making decisions, and feelings of hopelessness. Dysthymia is considered a less severe but longer lasting form of depression than major depression; and usually begins at an earlier age and results in a more persistent impairment of daily function. Many individuals with dysthymic disorder develop major depression within a period of five years.

    Anxiety and Agoraphobia Treatment Center - Anxiety Disorder TreatmentsAATC provides help for all anxiety disorders including; obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, simple phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. When indicated, treatment may include spouses and and other family members in addition to individual sessions. Because many anxiety disorders originate during childhood, a separate program for the treatment of children was established in 1991. Finally, group treatment is often available for selected anxiety problems. AATC is dedicated to trying to help those suffering from anxiety not only through therapy, but through education and community service. Our staff members regularly present our work at national scientific conferences and local presentations in an effort to train and educate other clinicians and the lay public. Because of our commitment to the community of those suffering from anxiety, we offer two free support groups, one for obsessive compulsive disorder and the other for panic disorder. For those who may not be able to afford therapy, lower cost therapy is available through our interns. Our interns are doctoral students in clinical psychology who are trained and supervised by AATC staff. They have come from Temple University, University of Pennsylvania, Bryn Mawr and La Salle.MontgomeryThe Anxiety and Agoraphobia Treatment Center - Montgomery; Bala CynwydAnxiety and Agoraphobia Treatment Center
