Lori Woodring: the author

Lori Attanasio Woodring received her Bachelors Degree from Cornell University and her Masters Degree, Professional Diploma and  Ph.D. from Fordham University. She is a licensed psychologist in New York and Connecticut where she currently has a private practice working with children and parents. For the past 20 years Dr. Woodring has worked with children and parents in school, hospital, and private settings. She also served as an Adjunct Professor in the Graduate School at Fordham University. Her research with children and families has been presented at national and international conferences.

Dr. Woodring was inspired to write her first book after her personal experience moving to London and back to the United States 5 years later. Her 4 daughters, all under the age of 7, had very different reactions before, during, and after the move. Moving is among life’s biggest stressors. While relocating is extremely hectic and disruptive for parents, it can also be quite stressful for kids. Children thrive on familiarity and routine and moving to a new home, no matter how near or far, can be very unsettling. Her workbook is intended to guide children through the experience, process their emotions, and move forward with a sense of calm and excitement.
