Description

Dr. Lisa Damour Speaks at Crofton House School

On September 26, 2019, Dr. Lisa Damour, renowned psychologist, author, columnist, teacher and expert on child development, will return to Crofton House to discuss her latest best-selling book: Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls

In 2016, Lisa’s practical and inspirational message about raising girls in a complex world resounded with the CHS community. Her book, Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood, continues to be a valued resource for parents and teachers alike. We are delighted to welcome Lisa back to continue the conversation that began with Untangled.

In Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls, Lisa explores the healthy role stress and anxiety plays in normal development by helping girls stretch beyond their comfort zones while keeping them safe, and the idea that these benefits should be emphasized to girls. As her research reveals, current levels of stress and anxiety has risen to a degree that requires our attention and action.

Based upon her knowledge and experience as a psychologist, Lisa offers helpful solutions when these tensions become too much - whether it is stress and anxiety at home, at school or around social interactions or social media. Lisa's presentation will share important research and ways to help understand and support today’s girls.
