Featured Speaker—Janis Whitlock
Understanding and Supporting Adolescents and Young Adults in The Millennial Age—There has never been a more stimulating time to grow up (or parent!) than the current age. One of the most fascinating findings of recent studies on the “stress and storm” of the teen years is that parents are far more likely to experience stress and storm than their youth. In an era where more than 35% of our youth struggle with emotional and mental health challenges at some point in their adolescence, parental angst is understandable. How can a parent tell the difference between the average stress and strains of growing up and more worrisome patterns? What has science learned about the process of growing up, risk taking, and maturing that helps parents cope with concerning or irksome teen behaviors? Join us for a quick tour of what we have learned about growing up healthfully in the modern age. Learn more about Janis and her research.
