Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Neurologist to Bring Transcendental Meditation to Wall Street and Main Street

The economic downturn has decreased job security on Wall Street and Main Street. Layoffs mean that surviving employees must take on added responsibilities and a larger share of the workload. The result? Escalating workplace stress, depression, and anxiety, which undermine productivity, work quality, and long-term employee retention. Now a leading psychologist and psychiatrist are teaming up to bring the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation technique to professionals in New York City—and throughout the country.

On Friday, October 9, at 12 noon (US EDT), psychiatrist Norman Rosenthal, psychotherapist Nancy Liebler, and neurologist Gary Kaplan will speak on 'Overcoming Depression in a Recession' at the Center for Leadership Performance, 70 Broad Street, in Manhattan [New York City, USA].

Research has shown that the Transcendental Meditation technique has a stabilizing effect on the physiology, reducing anxiety and depression, and promoting greater calm and increased energy. Meditating employees are healthier, more effective problem solvers, and think in more creative ways.

Fast Facts - Workplace Stress
The American Psychological Association (APA) reports that 81 percent of men and 68 percent of women between the ages of 45 and 54 report that work is a significant source of stress and anxiety in their lives. The number of men in this age group who suffer stress due to financial concerns has risen from 78 percent to 86 percent since September 2008.

Major depression affects approximately 15 million American adults or about 8% of the U.S. population age 18 and older in any given year. Women experience depression about twice as often as men. Approximately 80 percent of people experiencing depression are not currently receiving any treatment. By the year 2020, depression will be the second most common health problem in the world.
