We’re excited that Michael Thompson, PhD., is coming to Falling Creek to be one of our key orientation speakers this summer. He will spend a day with our staff helping them learn more about working with boys and understanding the social lives of children.
Dr. Thompson is a consultant, author and psychologist specializing in children and families. He has appeared on the Today Show, the Oprah Winfrey Show, 20/20, CBS 60 Minutes, and has spoken at or consulted to more than 500 schools in the U.S. and abroad.
Dr. Thompson is the author of eight books and is the co-author of the book Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys. His expertise in youth development is an excellent complement to our 3 weeks of staff training.
