ST Medical Monday: "Good Anxiety" (Encore)

Aired on Monday, June 6th.
Aired on Monday, June 6th.

"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." -- The Washington Post

(Note: This show first aired in September of last year.) These are, as we all know, particularly anxious times; feelings of anxiety are clearly widespread, for many reasons. But what are the "good" aspects of anxiety? Our guest 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 book, "Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion."
