The Spiritual Child With Lisa Miller, PhD

Wednesday, December 6, 8-9:30 PM - Live on Zoom

Join BeWell Miami’s upcoming webinar, in partnership with The Wellness Institute, titled The Spiritual Child, with best-selling author and psychologist Dr. Lisa Miller. With all the uncertainty and negativity in the world, giving children tools to support their mental well-being is more important than ever. Recent studies show that cultivating a child's spirituality is a key protective factor for their mental health.

Dr. Miller's groundbreaking research proves that children who have a positive, active relationship to spirituality are 40% less likely to abuse substances, and 60% less prone to teenage depression. Learn how and why developing a child's relationship with their innate spirituality strengthens their resilience and overall well-being.
