Description:

SESP is a proud supporter of Family Action Network events. In his latest bestselling book, Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety, John Duffy, Psy.D. offers guidance on navigating the terrain of contemporary adolescence. The “new teen” has unlimited digital access and unprecedented levels of academic, social, and family stressors. Young teens are constantly confronted with how they measure up to their peers, their status relative to others, their physical and emotional struggles. For vulnerable children and teens, these non-stop assessments, delivered via electronic media, are overwhelming. With rising rates of teen anxiety, depression, and substance use, parents are seeking to understand how to best support and connect with their children.
