Teenagers are often overwhelmed and stressed. Social media can exacerbate these feelings. In her new book, Boston College alumna Katie Hurley, a child and adolescent psychotherapist and parenting expert, provides teens with ways to transform their anxious thought patterns and build a happier, more positive mindset. A Year of Positive Thinking for Teens is crafted to help teens let go of stress with relatable prompts and reflections―all grounded in positive thinking and positive psychology strategies. According to Hurley, A Year of Positive Thinking for Teens can help teens find confidence and achieve their goals. Hurley is a licensed clinical social worker and author of The Happy Kid Handbook: How to Raise Joyful Children in a Stressful World and No More Mean Girls: The Secret to Raising Strong, Confident, and Compassionate Girls. Her work can be found in US News & World Report, The Washington Post, and PBS Parents.
