When Worry Works
Burdened by the mounting pressures on today’s youth, parents seek ways to strike the balance between supporting their teens’ current well-being while also setting them up for future success. Based on thirty years of clinical practice and her experiences raising her own teenagers in New York City, Dana Dorfman demonstrates that when parents become aware of their individual anxieties and learn to effectively manage them, they are empowered to make values aligned, rather than worry driven parenting decisions. She provides practical evidence-based parenting strategies, exercises, and reflective prompts to guide parents through a process to constructively apply to their day-to-day parenting decisions. She is a New York City based psychotherapist and was the co-host of a parenting podcast, 2 Moms on the Couch.
