Event description
Managing Our Kids’ Stress: From Pre-School through High School

About this Event

Come connect and learn how we can support our kids in managing stress from pre-school through high-school. Dr. Lisa Damour is a psychologist, author, teacher, speaker, and consultant who writes the monthly ‘Adolescence’ column for the New York Times. Her two published works, "Untangled and Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress" and "Anxiety in Children and Teenagers", provide practical strategies for helping students navigate this often challenging time.

In her talk, Lisa will draw on her extensive research on adolescents to teach parents about:

  • the difference between healthy and unhealthy stress and anxiety
  • research-based practical fixes to help young people manage naturally occurring tension, toxic stress, and anxiety
  • how to help our sons and daughters build strength and confidence throughout their school years.

Dr. Damour’s talk will end with an audience Q&A session. We look forward to seeing you at our first SPEAK event of the 2019-2020 school year!

This event is FREE for SPEAK member school parents, educators, and staff. A non-member fee of $15 will be collected at the door.
