Today we welcome Dr. Jody Carrington, who provides some valuable insight on disconnection; and the emotional dysregulation that our adolescents face as a result of the pandemic.
Dr. Jody Carrington is a renowned psychologist sought after for her expertise, energy, and approach to helping people solve their most complex human-centered challenges. Jody focuses much of her work around reconnection which she believes to be the key to healthy relationships.
As a speaker, author, and leader of Carrington & Company, she uses her twenty-year career as a psychologist to empower everyone. Jody has worked with kids, families, business leaders, first responders, teachers, and farmers and has spoken in church basements and world-class stages, sharing the message that our power lies in our ability to acknowledge each other first.

What Jody is grateful for
08:27 – “Fundamentally, we have never been this disconnected as a globe.”
10:17 – “So it’s a function of a trend that we were going towards before the pandemic, and the pandemic has expedited that because the only way we know we matter is when we look into other people’s eyes when we are face to face.”
10:53 – “We’re struggling to name our emotions, and we’re struggling to stay connected. We would much rather email somebody or text somebody or, you know, watch Netflix at night rather than sit down and look at our partners.”
