Best, PJ Lorenz, CS Lewis & Company Publicists, 518-678-4007 Segment Idea: Escape from the Box: Strategies for Breaking Free from Life-Limiting Anxiety Disorders I’m contacting you with a segment idea about one woman’s escape from the box in which debilitating anxiety had her locked, and how she learned to finally live and love fully. The big idea: Wendy Tamis Robbins’ anxiety, obsessive-compulsive and panic disorders started when she was a young child growing up in a volatile household. Anxiety controlled her life well into adulthood, to the point of agoraphobia. Though she dabbled in treatment from time to time, it took many years and an unsuccessful marriage before she finally took hold of her mental health and, through introspection, meditation, re-parenting and self-administered exposure therapy, escaped from her self-inflicted prison. The so-what: Not only are we living in an era of particularly high anxiety, but according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety-related disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting more than 40 million adults aged 18 and older. And anxiety disorders also affect more than 25 percent of teenagers ages 13 to 18. Robbins’ story offers hope and inspiration to individuals trapped by anxiety disorders. Key messages: Anxiety is a self-imposed prison with walls that close in over time. Avoiding triggers that provoke panic attacks is not a cure for anxiety, but an imperfect anxiety-management strategy. It is possible to free oneself from the prison of anxiety through self-compassion and the hard work of introspection. The source: Wendy Tamis Robbins, author of The Box: An Invitation to Freedom from Anxiety, is also a speaker, coach and corporate attorney. Despite her debilitating anxiety disorders, she worked her way through Dartmouth College and law school before, in her 30s, she set her mind to overcoming the anxiety and panic attacks that increasingly limited her life. She finally found that hard-fought freedom a decade later and chronicled that journey in The Box. Learn more at www.WendyTamisRobbins.com. SAMPLE QUESTIONS Tell us about yourself and when your anxiety really started. How did you eventually overcome it and find "freedom" as you call it? You talk about exposure therapy - what are some of the things you did at the beginning when this must have been most difficult and what you are able to do now. When did you decide to write the book about this journey? What are the biggest things you want people to take away from the book? I've read that you describe anxiety as your superpower now. Can you explain that? Where can listeners find you and the book?
