The adolescent brain is a giant construction project, often accompanied by irrational behavior and chaos impacting all of the family. Parents of soon-to-be tweens through high schoolers will find Dr. Kastner's research insights immediately applicable. Her engaging advice prepares parents for the unpredictable, often turbulent, tween and teen years.
Clinical associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of Washington and a nationally renowned expert on teen behavior and development, Dr. Kastner is also co-author of Getting to Calm: Cool-Headed Strategies for Parenting Tweens and Teens. Her new book, Wise-Minded Parenting: 7 Essentials for Raising Successful Tweens + Teens, was released in February, 2013.
