Clinical psychologist Meg Van Deusen ’85 has written a new book, Stressed in the U.S.: 12 Tools to Tackle Anxiety, Loneliness, Tech-Addiction, and More. Van Deusen takes a look at the cultural phenomena and events that have occurred in the United States over the past two decades and makes sense of why Americans are experiencing more stress and are resilient in the face of it. Through the lens of attachment theory, Van Deusen addresses how our relationships are suffering and provides tools that help us reconnect meaningfully to ourselves, each other, and our nation so we can handle the stressors we face instead of losing ourselves in a worried world.
