MAUREEN HEALY

Award-Winning author of Growing Happy Kids

Maureen is a leader in helping highly sensitive children thrive. Her popular blogs on Psychology Today, and for the PBS series, this emotional life, have focused on helping children become inwardly stronger and happier. Unique about Maureen is her experience working directly with kids globally from the Bronx to the base of the Himalayas. In 2007, Maureen was invited to work with Tibetan refugee children in India as well as study with his holiness the fourteenth Dalai Lama. Her book, Growing Happy Kids, begins with her journey to Asia and being surrounded by monkeys (which really happened!).

"Our highly sensitive children aren’t just sensitive. They are a collective of highly capable, intelligent, gifted and yes, stubborn beings who were born to do great things."
