How DO girls thrive? What protects them from cyber-bullying? Why are friendships with "unsuitable" girls a good thing? What about the latest brain research really matters? Are single-sex schools and classes good for girls? How can parents and educators work together? And what does all of this have to do with green frogs, green fingernails, and green marbles? Look for the answers, along with a synthesis of current research, solid theory, and diverse strategies, all told in Dr. Deak's signature storytelling style in this newly revised and expanded edition of "how girls THRIVE."
JoAnn Deak, Ph.D., has spent more than thirty years as an educator and psychologist, helping children develop into confident and competent adults. The latter half of that period has also focused on working with adults, parents and teachers in their roles as guides or 'neurosculptors' of children. Dr. Deak began her career as an elementary teacher and head of the science department. She soon learned the complexity of dealing with the many brain and motivational patterns represented by the diverse students in her classes. This led to her work at Kent State University, one of only three universities in the United States to have a specialty in Preventive Psychology at that time. Her doctoral work focused on how to assess those environmental, school and family patterns that lead to the healthy development of children and, conversely, those patterns that cause issues, problems and disabilities.
