Raise Her Up: Dr. Jody Carrington

1-minute read

Meet Dr. Jody Carrington. Speaker. Author. Game Changer. 

Dr. Jody Carrington is a psychologist, speaker and author of the best-selling Canadian book “Kids These Days: A Game Plan for (Re) Connecting With Those We Teach, Lead, and Love”. She is a wife and mom to three kids. She talks about relationships, trauma, hope and connection. 

Over the past year, the voice of Dr. Carrington brought calm to a year in disarray. She called on us to be brave and join the #ReconnectionRevolution

From the small community of Olds, Alberta, Canada, Dr. Carrington tasked us to connect with little nudges like text five people you’re thinking about. Send love via video and door drops. Make it your purpose this week to be kind to everyone you see. 

Dr. Carrington’s definition of BRAVE is doing something, with your whole heart when you can’t predict the outcome. Just the word we need for 2021. 

We ask Dr. Carrington for tips on thriving in 2021.

What inspired you to go into counselling?  

The question for me is who inspired me?  It would be all of the experiences that people allowed me to be seen.  I wanted to do that for others.
