Event Recap - Building Emotional Resilience in Girls and Young Women

It’s been a tough couple of years for young people, and our girls and young women have some unique challenges, including poor body image, toxic perfectionism, and a tendency to compare. How can you build resilience in young women? How can you teach them to find peace and walk with hope? So many of us also feel like we are drowning ourselves. Adolescent researcher Dr. Jennifer Doty, and clinician Jessica Peterson, share principles of resilience that can be applied to the challenges that girls, young women, and their influencers face: self-compassion, finding purpose, finding balance, and authentic connection.
