Dr. Polly Young-Eisendrath is a Jungian analyst and psychologist who has been in clinical practice for more than 25 years and has published fourteen books, now translated into more than 20 languages, on a wide array of topics involving human development and relationships – from resilience and gender to female authority and couples relationship. Her newest book, The Self-Esteem Trap: Raising Confident and Compassionate Kids in an Age of Self-Importance, came out in paperback with Little Brown Publishers in 2009.
Dr. Young-Eisendrath is a creative and imaginative speaker whose style of interacting with audiences is rooted in her decades as a practitioner and now a teacher of mindfulness. From the tradition of Buddhism, she brings an awareness of the roots of happiness coming from our ability to share, collaborate and engage with others so that we can give back the talents and gifts we’ve been given.
