Events & Seminars

Over the past year and a half, Garry has curtailed his travels and presentations in order to concentrate on writing a book, tentatively entitled: Student Mental Health For Educators. The book, written especially with educators and parents in mind, is also beneficial to clinical personnel as well. The book discusses several of the more prominent child and adolescent mental heath conditions such as ADHD, OCD, Early Onset BiPolar Disorder and Tourette Syndrome among others. It also addresses numerous underlying themes such as impulsivity and comorbidity that are inherent in these conditions. The book, written in Garry's own inimitable style, makes use of metaphor, analogy and allegory which provide readers with new ways of “seeing” the intricate dynamics of these conditions. The book demystifies these conditions and humanizes those children and adolescents challenged by them. Additionally, Garry has developed an all-day PowerPoint seminar presentation that coincides with the book. A more detailed description of the all-day program can be viewed on the website here:   
Beside working on his book and developing the accompanying seminar, Garry also took time to develop an informational seminar on bullying. Rather than offer yet another “anti-bullying” program, Garry's all-day Power Point presentation provides the necessary background information that enables participants to better understand the intricate dynamics prevalent in bullying. Developed from a mental health perspective, the program incorporates, for example, the issues of youth violence and youth suicide into the presentation.
