Description

Dr. Anne Fishel - Acclaimed Psychologist, Harvard Medical School Professor, Author

About the talk:

Sports, activities, long hours, and commutes--with so much to do, dinner has been bumped to the back burner.

But research shows that family dinners offer more than just nutrition. Studies have tied shared meals to increased resiliency and self-esteem in children, higher academic achievement, a healthier relationship to food, and even reduced risk of substance abuse and eating disorders.

In this talk, Dr, Anne Fishel will make a passionate and informed plea to put mealtime back at the center of family life and supplies compelling evidence and realistic tips for getting even the busiest of families back to the table.

About Dr. Fishel:

Anne Fishel is a Psychologist, Harvard Medical School Professor and the Director of Family and Couples Therapy at Mass General Hospital.

Dr. Fishel speaks, consults, and publishes widely on a range of families issues. Her recent book Home for Dinner: How Mealtime Can Make Your Kids Happier, Smarter and More Connected to You has been well received and highly regarded as a compelling tool for parents
