Episode Summary

Madeline Levine
The Price of PrivilegeMadeline Levine has been a psychologist for 25 years. Practicing in upper middle-class Marin County, her teenage patients are bright, socially skilled, and loved by their affluent parents. But behind a veneer of achievement and charm, many of these teens suffered severe emotional problems. Numerous studies show that privileged adolescents are experiencing epidemic rates of depression, anxiety disorders, and substance abuse - rates that are higher than those of any other socioeconomic group of young people in this country. While many privileged children project confidence and know how to make a good impression, alarming numbers lack the basic foundation of psychological development: an authentic sense of self.In The Price of Privilege, Levine offers professional counsel on raising children, especially in an environment of means. Levine will help identify parenting practices that are potentially harmful to healthy self-development, and that have contributed to epidemic levels of depression, anxiety, and substance abuse in the most unlikely place - the affluent family.moreless
