Read This Before Reading the Blog


Dear Reader,


Thank you for your interest in the subject of anxiety.  Since 50% of Americans struggle with anxiety, you are not alone.  Before reading further, however, please consider whether or not this blog is right for you.


Resolving the Anxiety Dilemma is based on a psychological field called cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).  Research shows that this approach greatly improves anxiety problems, and it is internationally recognized as the treatment of choice.  At the same time, studies also suggest that CBT may not be right for everyone.


Below are additional guidelines about the nature of this blog, which were adapted from the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Social Media Policy.  If the content that follows sounds appropriate, I am excited to take this journey together.


The path ahead is not always easy.  Anxiety is a serious topic, and an honest walk through its terrain has its bumpy moments.  Yet exploring anxiety’s landscape helps us reach a worthy goal: a freer and less anxious life within a wider world.
