We all have anxiety. It’s the early warning system that lets us know something is going on that could be harmful, challenging or put us at risk.
Some people are wired with a higher level of apprehension and anxiety. When dominant and not related to an issue, it becomes an anxiety condition – and nearly one-third of all adolescents experience one.
Mike Paget, M.Ed. – an author, speaker, consultant and innovator of effective approaches for working with students with severe emotional and behavioral problems – details what anxiety looks like and discusses how both nature and nurture contribute to an individual’s anxiety level.
