Dr. Madeline Levine

Success is NOT a Straight Line: Skills to Thrive in Trying Times

Virtual Event

Too many young people are experiencing depression, substance abuse, and anxiety disorders as today’s youth are often overwhelmed, exhausted, distressed, and unprepared to navigate the life-challenges ahead. And what of the role played by the stress generated by all the world tumult that parents feel and may unwittingly project onto their children?

But there is hope. Using the latest developments in science and research gleaned from captains of industry, entrepreneurs, academics, and futurists, GPS speaker Dr. Madeline Levine identifies the skills that children need to succeed in turbulent times: adaptability, curiosity, collaboration, tolerance for failure, and optimism. Most importantly, Dr. Levine offers day-to-day solutions that parents can use to facilitate these skills, and raise kids who are prepared, healthy, enthusiastic, and happy – ready to face tomorrow with confidence and optimism.

Respected psychologist Madeline Levine, PhD, in her New York Times bestseller, “The Price of Privilege: How Parental Pressure and Material Advantage Is Creating a Generation of Disconnected and Unhappy Kids,” was the first to correctly identify the deficits created by giving kids too much of the wrong things and not enough of the right things. Her highly anticipated and most recent book is “Ready or Not: Preparing Our Kids to Thrive in an Uncertain and Rapidly Changing World.”

Dr. Levine is a recognized expert and resource for education and parenting. She has appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, Fox & Friends, Nightline, 20/20, Dateline, MSNBC and on numerous NPR radio shows. She has also authored many pieces for the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and The San Francisco Chronicle.
