About this event
In today’s world, our children are encountering and navigating challenges unlike ever before, making it crucial to explore new avenues to support their well-being.
Best-selling author and Columbia University psychologist Lisa Miller, PhD, has identified a major factor that empowers children to thrive through it all: spirituality.
This single factor has been shown to reduce the risk of substance use and abuse by 40% and reduce the risk of teenage depression by 60%. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
In this webinar, you will learn Dr. Miller’s how and why to develop and encourage your children’s―and your own―well-being through a relationship with their innate spirituality.
