Dr. Kelly McGonigal: Why Stress is Good for You, and How to Get Good at It
Forget everything you thought you knew about the effects of stress and begin to see it through a different lens. Stanford psychologist and bestselling author, Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D., delivers a startling message: Stress isn't bad. In her latest book, The Upside of Stress, McGonigal highlights new research indicating that stress can, in fact, make us stronger, smarter, and happier if we learn how to embrace it. McGonigal combines science, stories, and exercises into an engaging and practical presentation that is both entertaining and life-changing.  Is it actually possible to harness the positive side of stress to help our kids and our families become more resilient?  The answer is yes!  When students learn to think about stress in a more positive way, they can actually use it to improve learning, to find purpose and to form stronger emotional connections to others.  

Whether you are parenting young children or in the midst of navigating the teenage years, you won't want to miss this important evening.  

Middle school and high school students are also invited and encouraged to join their parents for this special family education event.

Dr. McGonigal's TED talk, "How to Make Stress Your Friend," is one of the 20 Most Viewed TED talks of all time, with 10 million views.
