From Dana Hall School:
On Thursday, Nov. 12 from 7-8:30 p.m., Dana Hall School will host The Forum: A Conversation on Girls and Stress. This collaborative program is free and open to the public. Attendees should sign up at www.danahall.org/theforum15.
The Forum at Dana Hall School is a symposium series designed to examine a topic of particular relevance to girls and girls education. The first symposium will focus on adolescent girls and stress. While girls are aspiring to even more ambitious academic goals than ever, they also report higher levels of stress and a stronger reaction to stress than their male counterparts.
At this evening event, a group of educators, scientists and clinicians will share recent research findings, as well as discuss and share practical strategies to help parents, teachers and students devise methods to perform well in the classroom, while also mitigating stress.
Panelists include Dr. Rob Evans, Executive Director of The Human Relations Service; Dr. Belle Liang, Associate Professor of Counseling, and Developmental and Educational Psychology in the Lynch School of Education at Boston College; and Dr. Layli Maparyan, Executive Director, Wellesley Centers for Women. Dana Hall Head of School Caroline Erisman will serve as the moderator for the event.
