Šimonová, Lucie ; Kučerová, Olga (advisor) ; Adámková, Jana (referee)
This thesis deals with the impact of online learning on the mental health of high school students, with the focus on anxiety and depression.

The theoretical part explains the concepts of anxiety and depression and describes their symptoms, potential causes and ways of treatment.

An inquiry into self-esteem within a given range of clients with anxiety disorders
Najbrtová, Kristina ; Šípek, Jiří (advisor) ; Šivicová, Gabriela (referee)
The thesis focuses on the issue of self-esteem in clients diagnosed with anxiety disorders. While this condition belongs to the most common mental illnesses, the role of the patient's self-esteem has not been sufficiently researched. The aim of the thesis is to contribute to a better understanding of the relation between anxiety and self-esteem, and to examine whether clients with so called Other Anxiety Disorder manifest specific differences in their level of self-esteem. In the theoretical part we summarize the key findings in the domain of anxiety disorder research; we further compare the different psychological approaches to the issue of self-esteem. There is a particular focus on authors who explore the possible causes and features of self-esteem deviations in patients with anxiety disorders, and who propose hypotheses regarding the nature and origins of this linkage. The empirical part of the thesis focuses on the analysis of the explicit and implicit self-esteem level in clients with anxiety disorder. For the purpose of measuring explicit self-esteem we have used foreign questionnaires, namely the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and the SLSC-R. For implicit self-esteem evaluation we have used the Rorschach test. The research outcomes indicate that clients with anxiety disorders display...

Kotolová Hana, Ph.D., PharmDr. Vokřál Ivan, Ph.D. Title of diploma thesis: Current options for pharmacotherapy of anxiety and sleep disorder Anxiety and sleep disorders belong to common medical conditions. Anxiety attacks are recurring unpleasant emotional states. Sleep disorders are characterized by an insufficient or excessive amount of sleep or its poor quality, which persist for a significant time period. These common disorders represent an important medical and socioeconomic problem. Opinions about etiopathogenesis and classification are constantly evolving. Complex treatment includes mostly removing the cause, lifestyle changes, psychotherapy, and pharmacotherapy. Antidepressants from SSRI or SNRI group are considered to be the drugs of the first choice in frequent anxiety disorders. The treatment of insomnia depends mainly on the type of disorder. Hypnotics should be reserved especially for short-term and transient forms of insomnia, the treatment of which must be started as soon as possible together with the cognitive component and the elimination of the primary cause of this insomnia.

Obesity and psychiatric diseases
Pluhařová, Apolena ; Matoulek, Martin (advisor) ; Karbanová, Martina (referee)
Introduction: Obesity is closely related to psychiatric disorders. I examined a sample of obese patients who were on VLCD / LCD during hospitalization. The aim was to determine the incidence of psychiatric disorders among obese patients and the development of their weight. Methods: Quantitative research was carried out at the D3 department at III. Department of Internal Medicine, 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and General Faculty Hospital in Prague. The data for the research was obtained from medical reports of patients on VLCD / LCD during hospitalization in the period 2018-2019. The results were compared with the Czech population and professional literature. Results: Data analysis shows that 42.2 % of women and 26.2 % of men in the sample suffer from a psychiatric diagnosis. The most common psychiatric disorder was depression and anxiety. The result of a comparison of a sample of patients on VLCD with the Czech population indicate that there is a similar proportion of depressive disorder among women on VLCD and individuals with obesity in the rest of the Czech population. In men, there is less incidence of depression on VLCD patients than in the rest of the population. A lower incidence of depressive disorder in men may be because individuals with severe psychiatric conditions are...
