Fall Speaker Series

2016 Care and Counseling Fall Speaker Series Presents:




Author of “The Spiritual Child”


Join us for this special presentation as Lisa Miller, Ph.D. presents the next BIG idea in psychology: THE SCIENCE AND POWER
OF SPIRITUALITY. She explains the clear, scientific link between spirituality and health and shows that children who have a
positive, active relationship to spirituality:

  • are 40% less likely to use and abuse substances
  • are 60% less likely to be depressed as teenagers
  • are 80% less likely to have dangerous or unprotected sex
  • Show an increased sense of meaning and purpose


Combining cutting-edge research with broad anecdotal evidence from her work as a clinical psychologist, Dr. Miller will illustrate
just how invaluable spirituality is to mental and physical health.
