What support does the author use in the article “facing our fears”


What the author of Facing our Fears uses as support is a quote from a resercher at the University of  Pennsylvania, David A. Yusko, Psy.D. He is the Clinical Director at the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety (CTSA) in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Yusko especializes in many kinds of therapies, and in the case of this article in cognitive-behavioral treatment for social anxiety, panic disorder, specific phobias, and generalized anxiety.

the support that the author, uses in the article facing our fears is a): a definition of the part of the brain called the amygdala.

despite this, the author points out in the article that that is a controversial notion and that evidence, in animal and humans, supports the idea that core emotions can exist outside of conscious awareness.
