Opting for Growth by Embracing Stress and Emotion: Let’s Get Uncomfortable with Dr. Karin Hodges

January 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Goodwin Forum, Main Library

With the current mental health crisis affecting the younger generation, it’s more critical than ever to concentrate on fostering environments that promote growth. During the discussion, Dr. Hodges will share her insights on how to foster an environment that supports kids’ emotional growth and well-being. It’s about creating a space where children are given permission to express their emotions, provided opportunities to be challenged and stressed, and given the privilege to develop resilience. This discussion is not just for parents, but for anyone interested in nurturing a supportive environment for children’s development. Because what if all adults carried the burden of the teen mental health crisis and chose to set a new course?


This enlightening event with Dr. Karin Hodges promises to be a deep dive into the world of child development and mental health. It’s an opportunity to better understand our children’s needs and discover ways to ensure their growth and well- being. So, join us as we explore the delicate balance between adult comfort and children’s developmental needs, and how we can tip the scale in favor of our children’s mental wellness.


Dr. Karin Hodges is an MIT lecturer and the founder of Raising Moxie, a business aimed at helping adults to empower children.
