Dr. John Huber: Is Black Friday Harmful To Your Mental Health?

Jeff talks with Dr. John Huber, a Clinical Forensic Psychologist, about Black Friday as it relates to mental health. According to Dr. Huber, a recent study found that the chaos of major sales events may cause anxiety, loss of reality and other mental health issues among shoppers. Retailers bank on these heightened emotions to make the sale. Unsurprisingly, many shoppers feel “spending guilt” after loading up on holiday gifts they can’t afford, which in turn can lead to financial and relationship problems.
