Lisa Miller Event
"The Spiritual Child"

The New Science on Parenting for Health and Lifelong Learning.

Tuesday, May 21

On Tuesday, May 21, from 7:00-8:00pm, we are  delighted to welcome back Lisa Miller, PhD, to  discuss her bestselling book, “The Spiritual Child: The New Science on Parenting for Health and  Lifelong Learning.” Dr. Miller is a professor of  Psychology and Education at Teachers’ College,  Columbia University, and Founder of the Spirituality, Mind, and Body Institute. In “The Spiritual Child,” psychologist Lisa Miller presents the next big idea in psychology: the science and the power of spirituality. She explains the clear, scientific link between spirituality and health and shows that  children who have a positive, active relationship  to spirituality:
  • are 40% less likely to use and abuse substances
  • are 60% less likely to be depressed as teenagers
  • are 80% less likely to have dangerous or unprotected sex
  • have significantly more positive markers for thriving including an increased
    sense of meaning and purpose, and high levels of academic success.
Combining cutting-edge research with broad anecdotal evidence from her work as a clinical  psychologist to illustrate just how invaluable  spirituality is to a child’s mental and physical  health, Miller translates these findings into  practical advice for parents, giving them concrete ways to develop and encourage their children’s –  as well as their own – well-being. In this provocative,  conversation-starting book, Dr. Miller presents  us with a pioneering new way to think about  parenting our modern youth. Contact Marianna  Kilbride at to learn more.
