featuring Dr. Christine Carter of the Greater Good Science Center, UC Berkeley

Today’s teenagers and preteens are growing up in an entirely new world, one that is defined by social media and mobile devices. Understandably, many parents are paralyzed by new problems that didn’t exist less than a decade ago, like social media and video game obsession, sexting, and vaping and now navigating life during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Highly acclaimed sociologist at UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, Dr. Christine Carter melds research—including the latest findings in neuroscience, sociology, and social psychology—with her own real-world experiences as the mother of four teenagers. 

This program will be a 1 hour live Q + A. 

  ASL interpretation provided. 

Topics that Dr. Carter may address include: 

  • Providing the structure teens need while giving them the autonomy they seek
  • Why physical distancing is particularly challenging for teens
  • Helping them take care of themselves
  • Protecting them from anxiety, isolation, and depression
  • Effective conversations about tough subjects
