"Four Things I Wish I Had Known in My 20's!"

March 6, 2015 Global Video Conference for the Women's Network of the Young Presidents Organization

The transition from the teenage years to adulthood can be exciting, challenging and sometimes stressful - for both children and parents. Moving into the pilot seat takes a lot of responsibility, and Barbara Long, M.D., Ph.D., board-certified psychiatrist, offers wisdom in the transition through life and all that it has to offer - good and bad.
During our call, Dr. Long will share an overview of her book Keep Your Eye on the Prize! A Young Person's Guidebook to Adulthood. We will take a look inside this \ "psychological toolbox" to discuss how young people can:

  • Navigate the "transition years," the teenage brain, "personal prism" and style.
  • Go off of "auto pilot" in order to find their true identity.
  • Gain balance and understand the "big picture" of life.
  • Identify the "emotional compass point" relating to others and difficult people, spotting challenges, and managing them.
  • Deal with life's obstacles and master strategies for hard times.
  • Use social networking and the Internet to their advantage.

This Conference was well-received and was a power point on her "red" book, Keep Your Eye on the Prize. Highlighting 10 major points in the book, Dr. Long discussed the challenges young people face in becoming adults as well as the challenges faced by parents as they relinquish control of their children during these years.
