April 16, Levine is set to speak “on raising independent, productive children while being a more relaxed and connected parent.”

According to a news release, Levine is a psychologist with close to three decades of experience as a clinician, consultant and teacher. She authored The Price of Privilege, which explores the rates of emotional problems in teenagers from affluent families. Her latest book, Teach Your Children Well, tackles the impact on kids of the current narrow definition of success.

Levine is also a co-founder of Challenge Success, a project at Stanford’s Graduate School of Education, and has taught child development classes to graduate students at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center.
