Michael G. Thompson, Ph.D.
Based upon the best-selling book of the same title, Dr. Thompson will talk about the dramatic world of childhood friendships - which can be a source of joy as well as heartbreak - to help guide parents and educators to a deeper understanding of the motives and meanings of social behavior.
Michael G. Thompson, Ph.D. has worked as a clinical psychologist, school consultant and international speaker on the subjects of children, schools and parenting. He has authored nine books focusing on the emotional lives of boys, friendships and social cruelty in childhood, the impact of summer camp experiences on child development, the tensions that arise in the parent-teacher relationships, and psychological aspects of school leadership. His work with independent schools and public school districts throughout the United States, and with international schools in Europe, Asia and South America takes him to about fifty schools a year to lead workshops for teachers, administrators, parents and students.
