Listening to Your Anxiety

March 8, 2022
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
International Affairs Building, 420 W. 118 St., New York, NY 10027 1501

Many of us experience anxiety and don’t know what to do with it. In these dynamic times, given all the changes we’re experiencing, our anxiety may be especially present.  What if we saw our anxiety as a teacher, rather than an obstacle? As we experience changes, how can we identify and harness all of our feelings–including anxiety and stress–to stay focused on the big picture, and better connect to what matters most to us? In her keynote talk, “Listening to Your Anxiety," Dr. Anne Marie Albano, Professor of Medical Psychology (in Psychiatry) at Columbia, will focus on helping you build your resiliency, and leave you with actionable tools to transform your anxiety into guidance and meaning. This event is in partnership with The School of International and Public Affairs

Anne Marie Albano is a Professor of Medical Psychology (in Psychiatry) at Columbia University and founder of the Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CUCARD).
