9:30-10AM: MONDAY MORNING CHAT WITH BEAVER DAM WOMEN’S HEALTH-Dr. Ken Osterman
THE STRESSED YEARS OF THEIR LIVES: HELPING YOUR KID SURVIVE AND THRIVE DURING THEIR COLLEGE YEARS, Dr. Janet Hibbs and Dr. Anthony Rostain
From two leading child and adolescent mental health experts comes a guide for the parents of every college and college-bound student who want to know what’s normal mental health and behavior, what’s not, and how to intervene before it’s too late.
“The title says it all…Chock full of practical tools, resources and the wisdom that comes with years of experience, The Stressed Years of their Lives is destined to become a well-thumbed handbook to help families cope with this modern age of anxiety.”
― Brigid Schulte, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author of Overwhelmed and director of the Better Life Lab at New America
All parenting is in preparation for letting go. However, the paradox of parenting is that the more we learn about late adolescent development and risk, the more frightened we become for our children, and the more we want to stay involved in their lives. This becomes particularly necessary, and also particularly challenging, in mid- to late adolescence, the years just before and after students head off to college. These years coincide with the emergence of many mood disorders and other mental health issues.
