Dr. Christine Carter with Chris Mazzola - The New Adolescence

Raising teenagers has always been hard, but the information age has made it even harder

In conversation with Chris Mazzola

A highly acclaimed sociologist and coach at UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center and the author of Raising Happiness, Dr. Christine Carter melds research—including the latest findings in neuroscience, sociology, and social psychology—with her own real-world experiences as the mother of four teenagers.

In The New Adolescence, you’ll find realistic ways to help teens and preteens find joy, focus, ease, motivation, fulfillment and engagement, and practical guidance for:

  • Providing the structure teens need while giving them the autonomy they seek
  • Helping them overcome distractions
  • Teaching them the art of “strategic slacking”
  • Protecting them from anxiety, isolation, and depression
  • Fostering the real-world, face-to-face social connections they desperately need
  • Effective conversations about tough subjects–including sex, drugs, and money

Christine Carter, PhD, is the author of The Sweet Spot and Raising Happiness. A sociologist and Senior Fellow at UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, Carter draws on the latest scientific research in psychology, sociology and neuroscience—and uses her own real-world experiences—to give parenting, productivity, and happiness advice.

Chris Mazzola is currently the Head of School at the Branson School in Ross. Chris has more than three decades of working with teenagers in a variety of roles settings.
