YWCA Westman is pleased to host Dr. Jody Carrington in Brandon, on February 29th, 2024
Renowned Psychologist | Human Connection Expert | Bestselling Author
As an organization that exists to empower women and create a safe space for those escaping gender-based violence, YWCA Westman is thrilled to present a dynamic and authentic Canadian author and speaker, Dr. Jody Carrington.
Dr. Carrington is a powerhouse speaker and fearless champion for authentic human connection. She is highly sought after for her expertise, energy, and genuine approach to helping people solve the most complex human-centered problems. Jody’s work focuses on the value of reconnection – the key to healthy relationships and productive teams. Her authentic, honest (and often hilarious) approach never fails to inspire and motivate audiences.
Dr. Carrington is the founder and principal psychologist at the Carrington Practice, where she uses her twenty-plus years of experience to empower the clients she connects with. Jody’s unique resume of clients – from kids to major institutions – provides her with the insights and depth of experience to present unmatched value to her audiences. Her core message resonates with everyone from the practice to the world stage: our power lies in our ability to acknowledge each other first.
She is the bestselling author of Kids These Days (2019), Teachers These Days (2021), and the emotionally charged and introspective chart-topping, Feeling Seen (HarperCollins, 2023). In her latest book, she dives into what it takes to reconnect a disconnected world. 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.
Jody focuses much of her work around reconnection – the key to healthy relationships and productive teams. As a bestselling author, speaker, and leader of Carrington & Company, Jody uses humor, and all she has learned in her twenty-year career as a psychologist to empower everyone she connects with. 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.
