Target audience: parents with children of all ages

Using evidence from his own life, Dr. Hallowell will showcase to us how human connection propels people to overcome tremendous odds. Easily the most powerful force for good we have in life, connection, which is free and infinite in supply, remains underrated and underused today.  Hallowell will share his advice and provide strategies on how to reestablish the human connection that is all too often missing, for example how to replace ‘screen time’ with ‘face to face’ time. By the time you leave this presentation you will be eager and excited to use it in your own lives every day in many ways.

Dr. Hallowell recently published a moving  memoir, Because I Come from a Crazy Family. Books will be sold and signed following the presentation.

Edward (Ned) Hallowell, M.D., is a child and adult psychiatrist, a New York Times bestselling author, a world-renowned speaker and a leading authority in the field of ADHD.

In his new memoir Because I Come from a Crazy Family: The Making of a Psychiatrist,  Dr. Hallowell opens the blinds into his family life and willingly shows the insight of a young child who became a top expert in his field.
