Chrissie Pollard interviews ITT co-founder Previn Karian on how anxiety generates repeating patterns and compulsive or intrusive thoughts in our minds. These patterns can become overwhelming, making cognition and re-framing your thoughts useless. This is because we are dealing with emotions - in anxiety, it is the specific emotion of fear.

The difference between internal and external origins of anxiety gives us a handle on how to engage with and confront the emotion of fear in anxiety. Separating what occurs in our minds (internal) from what is triggered in our relationships, family, school, society gives a focal point of where to reduce the emotion of fear.
