Is willpower in the mind or in the body? What motivates people to change? Kelly McGonigal is one of the nation's most sought-after parent education presenters. Seating is limited, so sign up now! 

Health psychologist and Stanford University lecturer Dr. Kelly McGonigal understands willpower, and her work helps families improve habits, cure procrastination, find focus, and manage stress. She shares cutting-edge research into the neurodevelopment of adolescents, along with valuable strategies or "willpower boosts" to give parents tools to conquer common self-discipline challenges and establish an effective model for improving self-control in children. 

Kelly McGonigal is the author of The Neuroscience of Change; The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do to Get More of It; and Yoga for Pain Relief. McGonigal received a Ph.D. in Psychology from Stanford University.
