Ep. 61: Building Resilience in Children with Dr. Marshall Duke

Building Resilience in Children with Dr. Marshall Duke

The future feels uncertain and families around the world are concerned about how this stress will affect their children. In a special webinar event for our Living Fully community, I spoke with Dr. Marshall Duke about how we can help our kids build resilience and continue to grow through hard times. I’m excited to share the webinar with you as a podcast today.

Dr. Duke is a Professor of Psychology at Emory University. He’s focused his work around the power of family stories and has been featured by Good Morning America, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and others.
