We are pleased to welcome Yshai Boussi, who will be reading and discussing his book, Staying Connected with Your Teen: Polyvagal Parenting Strategies to Reduce Reactivity, Set Limits, and Build Authentic Connection, published by New Harbinger Publications.
The teen years are often fraught with intense emotions. Teens are hypersensitive to judgment from others, and can be highly reactive when parents attempt to set limits. Grounded in cutting-edge polyvagal theory, Staying Connected with Your Teen shines a light on why teens are triggered, and offers nerve-calming strategies to minimize reactivity, nurture a stronger connection, and help parents lovingly guide their teen on the path to adulthood.
