"The Decline of Emotional Resilience Among Adolescents and Young Adults: Causes and Potential Solutions"

Dr. Peter Gray, a research professor of psychology at Boston College, has published his work on such topics as neuroendocrinology, developmental psychology, anthropology, and education. His recent research focuses on the role of play in human evolution and how children educate themselves, through play and exploration, when they are free to do so. He is the author of Free to Learn: Why Unleashing the Instinct to Play Will Make Our Children Happier, More Self-Reliant, and Better Students for Life (Basic Books) and is a regular contributor to the Freedom to Learn blog for Psychology Today magazine
