ABOUT THE PROGRAM
New course! Hear from an esteemed parenting expert on how to help your children achieve true success.
Since her New York Times bestselling and groundbreaking book The Price of Privilege debuted in 2006, Dr. Madeline Levine has become the go-to guide for parents, teachers, therapists, and school administrators on how to stem the rise of emotional problems being documented among children of privilege. She identified a national problem: that America’s affluent families, with their emphasis on performance, perfectionism, competition, and materialism, are creating a large population of accomplished but emotionally troubled adolescents.
Now that the problem has been identified, what do we do next? Are there ways to reverse the disheartening trends of emotional problems, limited coping skills, and disengagement from learning? How do we raise and educate all children to become successful in meaningful and authentic ways as opposed to the kind of superficial success that only exhausts and impairs them?
This parenting seminar will include an illustrated lecture by Dr. Levine followed by an interactive workshop session with her in which participants will be able to explore how to help children reach their goals. A book signing is included.
