2022 Gitner Family Lecture

Building Bravery at BU and Beyond:  Evidence-Based Strategies for Overcoming Anxiety 

Lecturer: Donna Pincus, CAS Feld Family Professor of Teaching Excellence; Director, Child and Adolescent Fear and Anxiety Treatment Program, Boston University Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences

“Although anxiety is a natural human emotion that can be protective, high levels of anxiety can interfere with functioning and enjoyment of life. With rates of anxiety problems increasing globally, and with clinical services in high demand, it is critical that evidence-based tools for reducing anxiety are more easily accessible. Dr. Pincus will describe the nature of anxiety and will discuss evidence-based treatment approaches for managing anxiety that can help people across the lifespan. She will describe ongoing research aimed at building community partnerships and testing novel treatment formats to increase families’ access to effective care. Equipping our community with evidence-based, anxiety reducing strategies can help decrease stress and improve overall well-being.”
