Mood swings, changing hormones, and rapidly changing emotional states are normal phases of development for most teenagers. Left unchecked, these strong feelings can have an extremely negative effect on a teen's world. Psychologist Marsha Linehan will discuss these negative effects -- from failing at schoolwork and friendships, to a decline in family relationships and general happiness -- offering concrete steps for parents to assist their struggling young people. By using her theory of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (a technique incorporating acceptance and mindfulness) parents can help teens manage their intense, overwhelming feelings. She'll appear in conversation with Laura Kastner (author of Wise Minded Parenting) to share with parents how to stay calm, reduce teens' emotion-induced pain, and help their young adults get along better with others. Presented by: ParentMap. Tickets: $20 advance; $25 at the door. Doors open: 6:00 p.m. Learn more: About ParentMap.
