An Educational Approach to Psychiatric Problems
Adequate coping skills are essential for the maintenance of a person’s emotional well-being. Well being is dependent on the balance and the quality of the prevaling feelings, emotions and moods experienced by the individual. Feelings and emotions, serve to facilitate effective interaction with the environment. The feelings engendered in the mother by the helpless cry of the baby impel her to feed the hungry child. Erotic sensations facilitate the association with members of the opposite sex and ultimately the continuity of the human race. Anger readies the individual to defend his rights, while fear induces him to flee and give up when the fight is likely to be lost.
