    How to Manage Chronic Stressarrow-down

Dr. Lisa Damour will draw upon this research to highlight proven strategies that adults can use to make the best of persistently difficult circumstances.

    Back-to-School 2021: Helping Children and Teenagers Manage Uncertainty and Disruptionarrow-down

    Join us to learn how parents can support children and adolescents as they face the highly unusual and unpredictable school year ahead. This session will focus on what parents can do to help young people (and themselves!) successfully navigate the disruptions caused by COVID-19.

    Taking Control of Stress and Anxietyarrow-down

    Dr. Damour explains the science showing that stress and anxiety are unavoidable and actually necessary aspects of daily life: stress happens when we are adapting to new challenges and anxiety alerts us to pay attention or make a change. Dr. Damour’s groundbreaking approach empowers people to embrace healthy doses of stress and anxiety and learn how to keep pressure and tension from reaching unhealthy levels.

    The Science of Well-Beingarrow-down

    Psychologists have long studied the question “What makes people happy?” and the answer isn’t what people usually expect. Wealth and accolades matter far less than good health, strong relationships, and having a sense of purpose. Dr. Damour translates psychological science into the concrete steps that help people feel good while doing well.
