2.1552 Generalised Anxiety Disorder.
Although everyone experiences anxiety to some degree, for some people anxious feelings are all too familiar and intense, and pose a significant barrier to leading a normal life. Those who suffer in this way are said to have one form or another of 'anxiety disorder'. Precise definitions in regard to this disorder are sometimes difficult to determine, given the normality of a certain amount of anxiety in everyone's lives, and the way that anxiety disorders sometimes blend together with other psychological problems. Different types of anxiety disorders are examined and their causes. In concluding the paper treatment options are discussed. 8.5 pgs. 4 f/c. 11b.

3.1983 The Study of Procrastination.
The experimental approach to the psychology of personality has generated various approaches to the study of procrastination, as this issue is of some importance to several of the more applied bodies of social scientific knowledge. It will be noticed that the works referred to are rather plain in their concern for how procrastination originates within a person's repertoire of behaviors and how it 'operates', or continues to an extent whereby it may become a syndrome as opposed to a simple lack of action in achieving goals. This review is submitted in its critical spirit and with the inclusion of several twists of irony which are hoped to impart an idea of the limited philosophical awareness of much experimental psychology. It is in such areas as the study of procrastination that the researcher tends to be brought nearer to issues of human irrationality, and to the limitations of current approaches that belong to the mainstream in an often unspoken aim of Perfectibility. 12 pgs. 13 f/c. 17b.

5.2347 Rape Trauma Syndrome and Sexual Dysfunction.
This paper looks at how Rape Trauma Syndrome (RTS) brings fear and anxiety to the very area of life that should bring intimacy and comfort. Studies of individuals in society and in the prison population have shown the devastating physical and emotional impact that the invasion of the act of rape can cause. Invasive sexual abuse in childhood or as an adult can cause symptoms ranging from panic attacks to drug abuse. It is important that those who offer sexual counseling be aware of the specific signs of RTS so that they can offer more than standard treatment to free individuals from the deep pain and fear that is held by those experiencing RTS. 11 pgs. 16 f/c. 26b.
