Limited social contact with other humans over the past 2 years has seriously stunted our social skills and has resulted in increased anxiety about re-entering the post-pandemic world. Today on the podcast we talk with Dr. Angela Neal-Barnett, a national award-winning psychologist, professor at Kent State University, and the leading expert on anxiety disorders among Black Americans. Dr. Angela provides us with coping mechanisms and strategies to make re-entering into the post-covid world less intimidating.
