"Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion"

Sep 27, 2021

These are, as we all know, particularly anxious times; in this age of the Coronavirus pandemic, anxiety is clearly widespread. But what are the "good" aspects of anxiety? Our guest on ST Medical Monday is Dr. Wendy Suzuki, a Professor of Neural Science and Psychology at New York University and a well-known authority on neuroplasticity. She joins us to discuss her bestselling new book, "Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion." Per The Washington Post: "The book contains surveys and strategies to help people assess and even befriend their anxiety. It's a powerful reminder that many of the human body's adaptations can be used for good or ill -- and that people can flip their responses to what can feel like inevitable feelings of anxiety and stress."
