JoAnn Deak, Ph.D., is a widely recognized educator and psychologist who works with parents and teachers in their roles as guides or ‘neurosculptors’ of children. Dr. Deak’s perspective is best described on her website “Every interaction a child has, during the course of a day, influences the adult that child will become.”
In the 1980’s, Dr. Deak worked with the Laurel School as a consulting psychologist, where she participated in a six-year study with Harvard and a team of researchers led by Carol Gilligan. She currently consults with organizations, schools, associations and parenting groups across the United States and internationally.
Dr. Deak has written several books, including Your Fantastic Elastic Brain, How Girls Thrive and Girls Will Be Girls: Raising Confident and Courageous Daughters. Her first children’s book was published in 2010. Her new book will be available in November: The Owner’s Manual for Driving Your Adolescent Brain.
