Carol is honored to welcome Dr. Lisa Damour as our guest in part 3 of our series on the COVID-19 pandemic. Lisa Damour, Ph.D. is a psychologist, author, teacher, speaker, and consultant. Dr. Damour writes the monthly "Adolescence" column for the New York Times and is a regular contributor at CBS News.

She also maintains a private psychotherapy practice. As we head further into uncertain times, with a growing number of us in our homes with children of all ages, including adult children as they are sent home from closed colleges, shuttered abroad programs and rescinded job offers, we are in completely new territory. And for those of us in the middle of a relauncher job search, things are even more complicated given the economic forecasts we are facing. We turn to Dr. Lisa Damour for her guidance and wisdom.
