A new treatment model lays out what is in many ways a radically new understanding of the origin of anxiety, both in the individual and in the evolution of humanity. It describes the arrival of a "core fear" — one's overriding interpretation of life as dangerous, and a "chief defense" — one's primary strategy for protecting oneself from that danger.
The core fear and chief defense create a singular dynamic that, according to the model, is the true wellspring of basic anxiety.
Together, they open up a Pandora's box of all our fear-based experiences, creating an anxious worldview.
