The Feelings Lab Episode 6: Anxiety

In this episode, we discuss the emotion of anxiety with special guest Dr. George Bonanno, a world-renowned expert in the field of bereavement and trauma, and learn how to cope with this all-too-pervasive feeling.

In this week’s episode of The Feelings Lab, we discuss the emotion of anxiety. Join our recurring hosts Dr. Alan Cowen, Danielle Krettek-Cobb and Matt Forte as they welcome special guest Professor George Bonanno who leads the Loss, Trauma, and Emotion Lab at Columbia University.

Anxiety stems from a sense of foreboding. Whether felt chronically or in reaction to an immediate threat, anxiety is the bodily state of preparedness for something that could go wrong. Some anxiety is necessary, but these days there’s just too much of it. We discuss what science tells us about how to combat anxiety by being flexible about how you cope with stress.

Dr. George Bonanno begins by shedding light on how we cope effectively with trauma and everyday stress.

Next hear our CEO, Dr. Alan Cowen weigh in on the evolutionary advantages and modern usefulness of anxiety.

Dr. George Bonanno explains that the best time to build strategies for dealing with anxiety is when life is calm.

Dr. Alan Cowen and Danielle Krettek-Cobb discuss how mice will help one other in response to expressions of distress.

All this and more can be found in our full episode, available on Apple and Spotify
