We’re living in a stress society and it’s having a profound effect on all of our lives.

On this episode Stuart takes us on a very personal journey about his son’s relationship with polarization and demagoguery and how Self-Regulation helped Stuart connect with him on these difficult subjects.

Stuart and Susan also explore “choosing vs reacting” and how this discussion can help us reframe some of the frightening actions we’re seeing in our world.
