About the Speaker
Dr Russell Kennedy is very rare among physicians in that he specializes in the very disorder he suffered from himself. He developed anxiety as a result of growing up with a father with severe schizophrenia, and his life’s work is devoted to showing others that they do not have to suffer from chronic anxiety as he did. Dr Russ has degrees and advanced training in medicine, neuroscience and developmental psychology, but It’s not all science though, he is also a certified yoga and meditation teacher and was a professional stand up comedian for over a decade, and that’s no joke!. Whether it’s the latest in neuroscience, or it’s living at a temple in India, or examining his own anxious mind with psychedelics, Russ has seen anxiety from perspectives of multiple perspectives notably as both an anxiety doctor AND an anxiety patient. In his new book, Anxiety Rx being released October 15th 2020, he shares an understanding and treatment of anxiety never before seen.
