Hot Topics: October 15, 2019


You’re invited to hear from Dr. John Duffy, a highly sought-after clinical psychologist, best-selling author, and parenting expert about the “New Teen” and what it means for your parenting approach. He’ll give urgent advice to parents of teens who are growing up with nearly unlimited access to social media and the internet, along with unprecedented academic, social, and familial stress.

Dr. Duffy is the author of the number-one best-selling The Available Parent and a frequent commentator in national and local media, including: Steve Harvey, The Today Show, WGN-TV, NPR, WGN Radio, Huffington Post, Wall Street Journal, Redbook, Time, Good Housekeeping, Men’s Health, Chicago Parent, Cosmopolitan, Teen Vogue, Wired, Parenting, Your Teen, Parents, Family Circle, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, and Real Simple.

He’ll help us sort through the overwhelming circumstances of today’s teens, better understand the changing landscape of adolescence, and discover the joy in parenting by reclaiming the role of your teen’s ally, guide, and consultant. Copies of his book will be available for purchase.

Please join us! Whitney Young families will have the first opportunity to reserve a spot and if space allows, we will open the event to parents in the local community. So RSVP today!
