Dr. Tracy Dennis-Tiwary argues that anxiety is not, as we often refer to it, unhealthy—in fact, it’s an evolved advantage that protects us and strengthens our creative and productive powers. Although it’s related to stress and fear, it’s uniquely valuable—allowing us to imagine the uncertain future and impelling us to make that future better. Distilling the latest research in psychology and neuroscience and offering real-world stories and personal narrative, she shows how we can explore and leverage even very distressing anxiety rather than be overwhelmed by it. She's a professor of psychology and has been featured throughout the media, including the NY Times, Washington Post, CBS, ABC, CNN, NPR, and BloombergTelevision.
