Marymount Welcomed NY Times Best Seller, Lisa Damour for a Virtual Thought Talk

On Thursday, Jan. 20, Marymount hosted an insightful virtual Thought Talk with, New York Times Best Seller, Lisa Damour on the topic of Moving Ahead in 2022: Teen Girls and Mental Health.
Lisa Damour is the author of two New York Times bestsellers, Untangled and Under Pressure, writes the monthly Adolescence column for the NY Times, and is a regular contributor on CBS News.
Dr. Damour offered a wealth of parenting resources and strategies for parents to use with their teens. One strategy she shared was for parents to be "emotional containers" where children can simply share without interruption. "Sometimes we just need to listen," Dr. Damour shared. "As parents, one of the best things we can do is to be the emotional container where they can just share. We don’t need to ask questions, dig deeper at the moment, or give advice - just let them share."
