Good Stress, Bad Stress & Everyday Stress: Taking Charge with Proven Techniques
In this show, Dr. Dawn Buse, psychologist, Associate Professor in the Department of Neurology of Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Director of Behavioral Medicine at the Montefiore Headache Center addresses the nature of stress and proven techniques for reducing stress. In the back and forth with host, Dr. Suzanne Phillips she discusses and exemplifies the energizing potential of good stress, the body’s fight/flight survival stress responses in face of danger, the impact of chronic stress on adults and children, and how our perceptions and ruminations, often add to the stress we already feel.

Starting with a clarification of biofeedback (shown in the video associated on this page), Dr. Buse goes on to offer the “how to” for a wide range of stress strategies. She even includes some that any family member can use for a few minutes in the course of their busy day. Listen in and expand your repertoire for taking charge of stress.
