Neurosis

The neurosis is a functional mental disorder without any natural reason. It can be described as a group of uncertain functional neuro-psychical disorders that exhibit themselves in specific clinical circumstances in the absence of psychical circumstances.

The neuroses occur due to some important features like the mental and physical disorganization, deficient response and incapacity to properly react to different situations, feeling of scarcity, aggression, sleep disorders, emotional liability, constant internal tension and anxiety, agitation, discomfort, sexual disorders.

The neurosis also occurs due to an internal conflict caused by an insoluble clash in the attitude of a person to reality. Such contradictions are found in the wrong upbringing, social space, and sphere of human relationships and conflicts.

The neurotics are specified by emotional imperfection or lack of maturity, reacting carelessly in specific situations. It can be managed and are rarely suicidal. Hospitalization is not required.

Factors

The neurosis consists of different factors like biological, psychological, socio-economic, pedagogical. The biological factors consist of hereditary burden, prolonged somatic diseases. The psychological factors include psychological traumas, personality traits, emotional shock. The socio-economic means social pressure, socio-economic difficulties, material disadvantages, etc. The pedagogical is due to improper pedagogical leadership, conflicts between teachers and students, information overload, and overworking of students.
