Dr. LisaLisa Boesky, Ph.D., National Expert on troubled teens, is a Clinical Psychologist, National Speaker, and Author of numerous books, DVDs, and articles on teenagers with emotional and behavioral issues. She has worked with a wide range of adolescents—from mildly stressed teens to the most troubled, challenging, and dangerous youth in psychiatric hospitals and juvenile jails and prisons. She knows that teen problems do not develop overnight.

Dr. Lisa's new book When to Worry: How to Tell if Your Teen Needs Help—And What to Do About It has become a runaway hit.

PhotoEach year Dr. Lisa captivates, trains, and inspires thousands of parents and professionals across the US with her high-energy and interactive presentations on teen depression, self-injury (“cutting”), school problems, ADHD, bipolar disorder, delinquency, alcohol/drugs, eating disorders, school violence, teen suicide and other important teen issues. She also helps adults understand what is NORMAL and EXPECTED during adolescence—so they can relax and enjoy teens.

Dr. Lisa has consulted on mental health policy for a variety of youth agencies, helped develop a mental health screening tool for adolescents, and is regularly sought by legal professionals to serve as an expert witness on cases involving teen problems, teen mental health and suicidal youth.

PhotoDr. Lisa’s excellent reputation and popularity as a public speaker and author are due to her passion, warmth, humor and unique ability to make complex information interesting and easy-to-understand.
