Washington: Even mild stress can ruin therapeutic measures that are being used to control emotions, a new study has claimed.A team of neuroscientists at New York University pointed to the limits of clinical techniques while also shedding new light on the barriers that must be overcome in addressing afflictions such as fear or anxiety.Senior author said Elizabeth Phelps, a professor in NYU`s Department of Psychology and Center for Neural Science, said that what people learn in the clinic may not be as relevant in the real world when they are stressed.In addressing patients` emotional maladies, therapists sometimes use cognitive restructuring techniques - encouraging patients to alter their thoughts or approach to a situation to change their emotional response.
