J. Stuart Ablon

Dr. Stuart Ablon is a child psychologist who specializes in working with challenging children and their families, teachers and helpers. He serves as the Director of Think:Kids at Massachusetts General Hospital Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School. Challenging behavior exhibited by children and adolescents is a common concern and frustration for parents, teachers, and other helpers. In this talk, Dr. Stuart Ablon of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School will challenge the conventional wisdom about what causes challenging behavior and as a result what we should do to help. Drawing from research in the neurosciences, Dr. Ablon will suggest a revolutionary way of thinking about challenging behavior and a corresponding process by which kids of all kinds can be taught skills of flexibility, frustration tolerance and problem solving.
