LINCWell is proud to announce that on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Lisa Damour will be at St. Clement’s School to discuss her latest book, Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls.
Clinical psychologist Lisa Damour, Ph.D, is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through The Seven Transitions Into Adulthood.
While adolescence has never been an easy time for many teenaged girls, the advent of social media, the challenges of navigating the digital world, the increased pressures of our culture, and the expectation to excel in society have made those challenges greater than ever before for girls from elementary school through college. Dr. Damour’s latest book not only addresses these demands but also offers practical solutions grounded in solid research. She will outline how stress and anxiety can actually be beneficial – for example, stress can move us out of our comfort zone, and anxiety can help keep us safe – and offer advice that can assist girls to overcome these challenges.
Parents may recognize Dr. Damour from her books, her monthly adolescence column in the New York Times, or from her regular appearances as a contributor to CBS News.
Dr. Damour will meet with students in Grades 7-12 during the day, before welcoming everyone to Powell Hall at 7:00 p.m. to share her knowledge and deep understanding of ways we can help to support today’s girls.
You can purchase a ticket for the talk for $25, or a package for $45 that includes a ticket and a copy of Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls. Copies of the book will also be available at the talk for a cost of $30.
Space in Powell Hall is limited and Dr. Damour’s last visit to St. Clement’s School in 2016 sold out quickly – don’t wait to reserve your seat!
