The Spiritual Child
February 4, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
In this special presentation, psychologist Lisa Miller talks about her book The Spiritual Child. The title of the book refers to a fresh idea in psychology: the science and power of spirituality. Dr. Miller makes clear the scientific link between spirituality and health. She shows that children who have a positive, active relationship to spirituality:
* are 40% less likely to use and abuse substances
* are 60% less likely to be depressed as teenagers
* are 80% less likely to have dangerous or unprotected sex
* have significantly more positive markers for thriving, including
an increased sense of meaning and purpose, and high levels of academic success
Dr. Miller translates the results of her research into practical advice for parents and presents us with a pioneering new way to think about parenting our modern youth.
