Dr. Michael Gurian

In this inspirational, practical, and humorous presentation, renowned educator, family counselor, and New York Times bestselling author Michael Gurian focuses on helping  boys and girls succeed in school and life. Michael explores how the minds of boys and girls develop distinctly—and how parents, professionals, and peers can support the needs of children.

Michael brings to life not only the developmental neuroscience of girls’ and boys’ minds, but practical methods by which to support them. Michael will focus on learning and life difficulties that girls and boys experience, exploring the impact of sex and gender on learning different children, and the impact of those differences on the systems tasked with their care.

Michael has been called “the people’s philosopher” for his ability to dynamically combine cutting edge science with stories from people’s everyday lives.
