Educator & Author of The Price of Privilege
Madeline Levine, Ph.D., is a psychologist with close to 30 years of experience as a clinician, consultant, and educator. Her New York Times bestseller, The Price of Privilege, explores the reasons why teenagers from affluent families are experiencing epidemic rates of emotional problems. Her new book, Teach Your Children Well, outlines how our current narrow definition of success unnecessarily stresses academically talented kids and marginalizes many more whose talents and interests are less amenable to measurement. The development of skills needed to be successful in the 21st century—creativity, collaboration, innovation—are not easily developed in our competitive, fast-paced, high pressure world. Teach Your Children Well gives practical, research-based solutions to help parents return their families to healthier and saner versions of themselves. Read More >
Let's Be Realistic About Our Kids
"Madeline Levine was exceptionally well-received. She was a good match for our audience from the start, but I appreciated that she had researched the group and made specific ties to youth development as it relates to camp. She has very good humor…not the easiest thing to pull off in a keynote, but she manages it well. Not too much, and just enough to endear her to the audience—that’s success. She was also personable. We all enjoyed meeting her and having some time with her. Nothing but praise."
