Family Matters: Raising Healthy, Resilient Children in Challenging Times
with Rob Evans
There is no harder job than being a parent. Nothing else touches so much of a person so deeply—or so unpredictably—and there is no training for it. As the pace of life accelerates, as media influences intensify, and as the future grows less predictable, parents find it harder to know how to raise children of character, caring, and competence, how to resist negative influences in the surrounding culture, how to help foster strength and resilience in children. Rob Evans will outline key dilemmas in raising children and adolescents today and offer concrete suggestions for successful coping at home and school.
Dr. Evans is a clinical and organizational psychologist and the Executive Director of The Human Relations Service in Wellesley, Massachusetts. A former high school and pre-school teacher, and a former child and family therapist, he has consulted to over 1,700 schools across the country. His presentations are known for their lively wit and plain talk. He is the author of many articles and three books, including, Family Matters: How Schools Can Cope with The Crisis in Childrearing.
