Dr. Jody Carrington has inspired many to consider the capacity for reconnection as the foundation to every healthy, authentic relationship. We are not born with the ability to repair ruptures; we have to learn how to do this as we build strong cultures. These relationships are the foundation of a successful company, team, or community. Dr. Jody Carrington is one of North America’s top psychologists, bringing a unique and often hilarious take on what it means to master the art of reconnection.
Dr. Jody Carrington is a renowned psychologist sought after for her expertise, energy, and approach to helping people solve their most complex human-centred challenges. Jody focuses much of her work around reconnection – the key to healthy relationships and productive teams.
A speaker, author, and leader of Carrington & Company, Dr. Carrington uses all she has been taught in her twenty-year career as a psychologist to empower everyone she connects with. Jody has worked with kids, families, business leaders, first responders, teachers, and farmers, and has spoken in church basements and world-class stages; the message remains the same – our power lies in our ability to acknowledge each other first.
Her approach is authentic, honest, and often hilarious. She speaks passionately about resilience, mental health, leadership, burnout, grief, and trauma – and how reconnection is the answer to so many of the root problems we face. Her wildly popular book, Kids These Days, was published in 2019 and has sold 150,000 copies worldwide. Jody’s message is as simple as it is complex: we are wired to do the hard things, but we were never meant to do any of this alone.
With a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, work with major institutions and thriving clinical practice, she brings a depth of experience and insight that is unmatched in the industry.
Jody lives in small-town Olds, Alberta, with her husband and three children (she had three kids in 2 years to test her own resilience) and leads the amazing team at Carrington & Company.
Conversations for Supporting Family Connections (Facilitated Discussion)
Join us for small group collaborative discussions on what family means, why family is important, and how to support families. Within these groups, service providers will share with one another about why supporting families is so important and together we will gain various strategies to support families.
