The Psychology of Holiday Gift Giving


On The Point, our panel of mental health experts talks about holiday gift giving, and stress. We discuss what science tells us about the rewards of gift giving, and thoughts about the anxiety some of us feel in the search for that perfect gift... and just what is a perfect gift anyway?

Our guests are Marc Whaley, psychiatrist; Anne Geagon, Social Worker; and Jonathan Schwartz, psychiatrist.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
