Dr. Jody Carrington
CEO and Chief Happiness Officer
Canada
For the last 15 years, Dr. Jody Carrington has assessed, treated, educated and empowered some of our most vulnerable and precious souls on the planet. She is a child psychologist by trade, but Jody rarely treats kids. The answer lies, she believes, in the people who hold them. Especially when kids have experienced trauma, that’s when they need big people the most. Some of her favourites include educators, parents, first responders, and foster parents. Jody has shifted the way they think and feel about the holy work that they do. Before Jody started her own practice and speaking across the country, she worked at the Alberta Children’s Hospital on the inpatient and day treatment units where she held families with some of the most difficult stories. They taught her the most important lesson: we are wired to do hard things. We can handle those hard things so much easier when we remember this: we are wired for connection. Dr. Jody Carrington has inspired many around this country to consider the importance of (re)connecting, particularly in this time of disconnect. She is the author of the best-selling book Kids These Days and she manages a private practice in rural Alberta. Her biggest sources of inspiration come from her own three personal babes, and one amazing (and lucky) husband.
