You are invited to join Dr. Lisa Damour on March 16, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. for her virtual presentation “Helping Kids and Teenagers Manage Intense Emotions.”
Our collective emotions have been heightened since the beginning of the pandemic. Now two years in, parents are noticing that these emotions can have a dramatic impact on their children’s behavior and are seeking to understand the connection.
In this presentation Dr. Damour will explain:
- the heightened emotional concerns that have arisen in the context of the pandemic,
- the best ways to support psychological well-being in kids and teenagers, and
- the strategies parents can use to help young people manage emotions effectively.
Lisa Damour is the author of two New York Times best-selling books, Untangled: Building Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood and Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls.
She writes the monthly Adolescence column for the New York Times, co-hosts the Ask Lisa podcast, appears as a regular contributor to CBS News, works in collaboration with UNICEF, and serves on the Advisory Board for Parents magazine. Dr. Damour also maintains a private practice and consults and speaks internationally.
