Cameron (Dr. Cam) Caswell, PhD, the “teen translator,” is an adolescent psychologist, family success coach, and co-creator of Thriving School Community, a revolutionary program designed for schools to improve student, staff, and parent well-being. For over two decades, she has been helping parents build strong, positive relationships with their teens through improved communication, connection, and understanding. Dr. Cam is a TEDx speaker, host of the Parenting Teens with Dr. Cam podcast, co-creator of the “I Am Enough” teen 12-week workshop, author of Power Phrases for Parents: Teen Edition, and co-author of Improving School Mental Health: The Thriving School Community Solution. In her fun, interactive style, Dr. Cam unpacks frustrating adolescent behavior and empowers parents to work with their teen's wiring rather than against it. Her goal is to change the trajectory of mental health through deeper family connection. Dr. Cam is the mom of a teen too, so she not only talks the talk, she walks the walk!
