Difficulties within families increase anxiety in adolescents. In this episode, we discuss:

John ponders the interplay of external vs. internal factors. Those external factors being individuality/togetherness; the internal factors being thinking/feeling.
Zac recalls his resident training in college for mental health. He contemplates the diagnosis of depression/anxiety and the label it places on an individual.
Alex focuses on the role of guiding principles with individuals and families; the ability to navigate anxious times.
Contemplating the shift of anxiety in a family system can unearth problem areas and possibly shed light on depression. Bowen's Family Systems Theory shows its value as it provides a framework for further observation and understanding.
