Inside the Emotional Lives of Teenagers: How to Navigate the Bumpy Ride of Adolescence

Virtual Event

In teenagers, powerful emotions come with the territory. And with so many of today’s teens contending with academic pressure, social media stress, worries about the future, and concerns about their own mental health, it’s easy for them—and their parents—to feel anxious and overwhelmed. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Parents will learn:

  • what to expect in the normal course of adolescent emotional development and when it’s time to worry.
  • why teens (and adults) need to understand that mental health isn’t about “feeling good” but about having feelings that fit the moment, even if those feelings are unwanted or painful.
  • strategies for supporting teens who feel at the mercy of their emotions so they can become skilled at managing their feelings.
  • how to approach common challenges that come with adolescence, such as friction at home, spiking anxiety, risky behavior, navigating friendships and romances, the pull of social media, and many more.
  • the best ways to stay connected to their teens by providing the kind of relationship that adolescents need and want.

With clear, research-informed explanations alongside illuminating real-life examples, “The Emotional Lives of Teenagers” gives parents the concrete, practical information they need to steady their teens through the bumpy yet transformational journey into adulthood.

Dr. Lisa Damour co-hosts the Ask Lisa podcast, writes about adolescents for the New York Times, appears as a regular contributor to CBS News, and works in collaboration with UNICEF. She is the author of two New York Times best sellers, “Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood” and “Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls,” and the new book, “The Emotional Lives of Teenagers: Raising Connected, Capable, and Compassionate Adolescents.”

Dr. Damour serves as a Senior Advisor to the Schubert Center for Child Studies at Case Western Reserve University. She maintains a clinical practice and also speaks to schools, professional organizations and corporate groups around the world on the topics of child and adolescent development, family mental health, and adult well-being.
