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.”
