"Angst captures what so many people are suffering in these complicated days: the bullying, perfectionism, panic, obsession, and too often, hopelessness. Angst is cathartic and ends with notes of hope. Every school needs to experience this program. It's that important." - Dr. John Duffy, Psychologist, Author
