Students face unprecedented pressure to succeed, and they are absorbing the cultural message that their value is based on accomplishments.

Continuing professional development units are available for these webinars.

Wallace is a celebrated journalist, formerly with 60 Minutes, and author of the book "Never Enough: When Achievement Pressure Becomes Toxic- and What We Can Do About It."
