Anxiety and stress are normal parts of life, though excessive anxiety causes needless suffering and can prevent one from achieving their potential. Donald Zaksek, Psy.D., a licensed psychologist, will discuss the underlying causes of anxiety within a biological, psychological and social context. Participants will then learn evidence-based, cognitive behavioral strategies to improve sleep, manage self-defeating thinking and to keep the mind focused and under control. These are the basic steps to leading a healthier, balanced life in the face of anxiety. Question? Please call Saline District Library at 7340429-5450.
