Dr. Kathleen Smith on Bowen Theory and Understanding Anxiety
Dr. Kathleen Smith is the author of Everything Isn’t Terrible: Conquer Your Insecurities, Interrupt Your Anxiety, and Finally Calm Down.
I first discovered Dr. Smith's work through her must-read newsletter—she's an expert in Bowen Family Systems Theory, which looks at anxiety through the lens of our relationships. We don’t exist in isolation—we're constantly reacting to others around us, in our families and relationships, at work, and on social media.
This was a fun conversation, so thanks again to Dr. Smith. You can learn more about her work at kathleensmith.net.
Special thanks to Ashley Smith for additional production support.
