The New Anxiety — From Psychological to Sociological.

Really good point in this new New York Times article — anxiety is not only a psychological disorder but now a sociological one.

Anxiety can be viewed on various levels — on the individual level, the national level and the international one. Individual therapy needs to address these different levels of anxiety.

Here’s a good quote from the New York Times piece ………….

“While to epidemiologists both disorders are medical conditions, anxiety is starting to seem like a sociological condition, too: a shared cultural experience that feeds on alarmist CNN graphics and metastasizes through social media.”
