The pandemic brought heightened awareness to teen mental health. Parents are looking for tools to manage the emotional roller coaster of the middle and high school years.
Best-selling author and psychologist Dr. Lisa Damour, Ph.D. will help parents identify the many bumps along the road to raising teens, and how to distinguish what is normal teenage emotional development and what is cause for concern. Dr. Damour will also reassure parents that many of the emotional and mental health challenges teens faced through adolescence existed before March of 2020, however, the global pandemic and its myriad of challenges including social isolation exacerbated them.
Fusion Education Group's Vice President of Education Lynna Martinez will host Dr. Damour as she walks parents through the emotional development of teens from 6th-grade through 12th grade, and how every school year brings with it unique challenges. The presentation will run for about 35 minutes and will include ample time for parent questions.
