Studies show that resilience–the ability to recover from setbacks and cope effectively with stress–may be as essential to success as talent or intelligence. Laurel School’s Center for Research on Girls (LCRG), where Dr. Lisa Damour serves as the Executive Director, takes a research-based approach to cultivating resilience in children and adolescents. Join us to hear how parents can use LCRG’s five-part resilience model to help young people manage stress and embrace challenges, prepare children and adolescents to address obstacles and setbacks, and find a healthy balance between a “helicopter” or “hands-off” approach.
Dr. Damour is the Executive Director of Laurel School’s Center for Research on Girls and the author of the New York Times best-seller Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions Into Adulthood. Dr. Damour also writes a monthly column for the Well Family section of the New York Times, serves as a regular contributor to CBS News, maintains a private psychotherapy practice, consults and speaks internationally, and is a Senior Advisor to the Schubert Center for Child Studies at Case Western Reserve University.
