Robert Evans, Ed.D. to Speak at a Free Parenting Workshop at Grosse Pointe Academy

There is no harder job than being a parent. As the pace of life accelerates, as media influences intensify, and as the future grows less predictable, parents and teachers find it harder to know how to raise competent, caring children, how to resist negative influences in the surrounding culture, and how to help foster strength and resilience.

Robert Evans, Ed.D., this year’s Grosse Pointe Academy McMillan Lecturer, will outline these dilemmas and offer concrete suggestions for successful coping both at home and at school. The lecture is free to the public and will be held on Wednesday, November 10 at 7 p.m. in the Tracy Fieldhouse, 171 Lake Shore Road in Grosse Pointe Farms.

A clinical and organizational psychologist and the Executive Director of The Human Relations Service in Wellesley, MA, Dr. Evans has worked with schools and families around the country for thirty-five years. 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.

There will be a question-and-answer session and book signing following the presentation. Refreshments will be served. For more information, download a flyer or call 313-886-1221.
