Why the Ability to Listen is a Superpower

As children of all ages navigate continued uncertainty brought on by the pandemic, there’s a proven way caring adults can offer support.

In the two videos below, we address why the ability to listen is a superpower. In the first video, you’ll hear from Dr. Leslie Klein Garvin, Director of Counseling and Middle School Counselor at the National Cathedral School in Washington, D.C., Dr. Kerry Ressler, Chief of the Division of Depression and Anxiety Disorders at McLean Hospital, and Kercine Elie, a mother of three.

Dr. Klein Garvin viewed the The Pandemic and Kids' Mental Health teen video with middle school students. In the second video, she and I talk about the students' response and why being present and listening to kids is so powerful.
