WAT-CAST: Dr. Phyllis Goldberg and Dr. Rosemary Lichtman Talk About Millennials

They’ve been called the worst generation and the best our country has now. They’ve been called lazy and energized. They’re characterized as snowflakes and some of the bravest young people we’ve seen since the Greatest Generation. They are the millennials, those born between 1982 and 2004, now ages 18 to 38.  Millennials now make up the largest living generation, surpassing the Baby Boomers. As a group, they were adversely affected by the recession of 2008 and are now playing catchup.  Dr. Phyllis Goldberg and Dr. Rosemary Lichtman have spent years counseling families. Their book, Whose Couch Is It Anyway – Moving Your Millennial focuses on five families who have welcomed a young adult back home. Whether you are a millennial or are parenting one or more, you will want to listen to this interview with Woman Around Town’s Editor Charlene Giannetti.
