Untangled: The Critical Work of Raising Teenage Girls

Parents of teenage girls know that their daughters enjoy terrific strengths and face unique challenges as they move through adolescence. Though we often describe the teenage years as stressful, raising a teenage girl doesn't have to feel like a tangled mess. In fact, Lisa Damour says there is a predictable pattern to teenage development, an actual blueprint for how girls develop into thriving adults.

Join us for a conversation with  Lisa Damour, Ph.D., a Cleveland-based psychologist and  ​New York Times ​best-selling author of  Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood. Dr. Damour blends her clinical experience, time-honored wisdom, and the latest research findings to describe the seven transitions that turn girls into grown-ups. In doing so, she helps parents understand and support their daughters (and sons!) as they navigate the pivotal teenage years.
