Talk: The Emotional Lives of Teenagers: Raising Connected, Capable, & Compassionate Adolescents

In-person and virtual author event
* Monday, March 27, 2023 • 7:00pm

Please join us for a presentation by Dr. Lisa Damour about her latest book in which she will address the fact that adolescent mental health isn’t about feeling good, calm, or relaxed, but about having the right feelings at the right times, and knowing how to manage those feelings effectively. She will offer guidance on how to help teens open up, and how to keep teens from being overwhelmed by their emotions or feeling at the mercy of their moods and provide concrete strategies for supporting teens as they manage their feelings at home, with their peers, online, and at school.

Recognized as a thought leader by the American Psychological Association, Dr. Lisa Damour co-hosts the Ask Lisa podcast, writes about adolescents for the New York Times, appears as a regular contributor to CBS News, and works in collaboration with UNICEF. She is the author of two New York Times best sellers, Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood and Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls; in addition to the soon-to-be-published book, The Emotional Lives of Teenagers: Raising Connected, Capable, and Compassionate Adolescents.
