"Loving Your Adolescent" with Darby Fox

Rethinking your teenager poster

Join us for a conversation with Darby Fox. How to create and nurture your relationship with your Adolescents through unprecedented times. Teenage/Parent relationships are tricky most of the time but many aspects of the Pandemic have left us questioning how to best support our children. This discussion is based on her book, “Rethinking Your Teenager”. A Q&A will follow the presentation moderated by VP of Parent Education, Katie Yu. Darby Fox is a child and adolescent family therapist with over 25 years of experience with children and families from diverse backgrounds. Darby’s first book, Rethinking Your Teenager: Shifting from Conflict and Control to Structure and Nurture to Raise Accountable Young Adults, was published by Oxford University Press in 2020. An expert on parenting and family topics, she has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, and Newsmax and is a monthly contributor to Psychology Today. Darby serves as a pro bono mental health consultant on the boards of both Brunswick School and the American Red Cross and has worked with at-risk children through Horizons and the Open Door Homeless Shelter. She received a BA from Middlebury College and an MSW in Clinical Family Practice from Columbia University and has pursued specialized training at several leading institutions including Yale’s Child Study Center, NYU’s Silver School of Social Work, Harvard Medical School, the Anna Freud Centre, and The Ackerman Institute for the Family. Darby has four children of her own.
