Overcoming Anxiety
There’s a silent epidemic that’s ravaging America, one that’s lurking below the headlines: our near-constant state of anxiety. According to WHO, the United States is the most anxious nation on earth, with at least one in five people currently diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. As individuals, we’ve lost our agency: the ability to deal with stress and act as an effective agent for ourselves. Anthony Rao PhD distills 50 years of clinical fieldwork, cutting-edge research and more than one hundred in-depth interviews into accessible techniques and tools that will create agency and build your confidence. For over 20 years, Rao was a pediatric psychologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and an instructor at Harvard Medical School. Now in private practice, he’s been featured in the Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, Washington Times, New Yorker Magazine and the NY Times.
