Brain Waves: Managing Anxiety, Finding Compassion featuring Dr. James Doty & Michelle Craske

This week on Brain Waves, we discuss the benefits of embracing compassion as a resource for mitigating anxiety during stressful times. Our guests — James R. Doty, M.D., the Founder and Director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University, and Michelle Craske, Distinguished Professor, Psychology and Psychiatry at UCLA — want to facilitate a message of positive thinking and recognition of weakness, stating, “It’s not a sign of failure or character. It’s a sign of strength.”
