The CVBT Podcast: Paul Napper

25 minutes

• Author Paul Napper says there’s a common reason so many are anxious in the U.S.

• “We actually have a silent epidemic … of anxiety”

The United States is chock full of people who are anxious. Anxious about their businesses. Their lives. You name it.

One of the reasons, says researcher and author Paul Napper, is that people have lost their “agency.”

“This is primarily an American problem. We have gotten to a state of near-overwhelm as a society,” he says. “We are very over-stimulated. We have robust data that suggest there is a tremendous amount of anxiety. We actually have a silent epidemic … of anxiety.”

He joins us on today’s CVBT Audio Interview Podcast to tell us just what it means to lose one’s agency – and what to do about it.
