Today, May 12, 2008 Dr. Sandra Prince-Embury was Dr. Holstein’s guest on her radio show, Kids, Tweens and Teens, A Positive Psychologist Looks at all Three on www.internetvoicesradio.com. This show is recorded and archived and available 24/7 for downloading and as a podcast. Dr. Prince Embury discussed Dr. Holstein’s new book, The Truth,(I’m a girl, I’m smart and I know everything). She mentioned how important the book is for tweens and teens, giving them a model for the skills of self awareness and expression which are so critical for tweens and teens. The girl is able to verbalize her feelings in her own words and actually speaks so naturally, that the reader feels she is really talking to her. Her honesty and her capacity to adjust to disappointments, even around the failings of her parents are also important issues for youngsters developmentally.
Dr. Sandra Prince Embury is a nationally known expert in the field of Resiliency, having developed The Resiliency Scales for Children and Adolescents. Come and listen to the show! If you have kids-it is a must!
