Nardin to Welcome Dr. Lisa Damour as Distinguished Speaker

On Wednesday, September 12, the Nardin community will welcome Lisa Damour, Ph.D. to campus as part of the Nardin Academy Distinguished Speaker series.

Dr. Damour is the New York Times best selling author of Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood as well as a psychologist, teacher, speaker, and consultant who directs Laurel School's Center for Research on Girls. She writes the monthly Adolescence column for the Well Family section of the New York Times, is a regular contributor at CBS News, and serves as a Senior Advisor to the Schubert Center for Child Studies at Case Western Reserve University.

Her work draws on years of clinical experience and the latest research to provide sound, practical guidance to girls as well as to their parents, teachers and advocates. As Nardin continues to maximize student potential through an increase in health and wellness programming, this event offers an invaluable opportunity for the community to engage in thought-provoking discussion related to girls' development during complex times.

The event begins at 7 p.m. in the Nardin Academy chapel; while RSVP is not necessary, please arrive early for space is limited. Parents should enter through the courtyard doors off of Auburn Avenue.

Dr. Damour will be available to sign books beginning at 6:30 p.m. Please bring a copy of the book, as books will not be available for purchase.

We look forward to seeing parents at this event!
