James Garbarino '68, the Maude C. Clarke Chair in Humanistic Psychology at Loyola University in Chicago, will give two presentations in Canton on September 19, one on campus and one at Hugh C. Williams High School.

An authority on child development and youth violence, Garbarino will give a presentation titled "Parents Under Siege: Why You Are The Solution -- Not the Problem -- In Your Child's Life" at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. The event is organized by the Canton Alcohol Initiative, a cooperative effort of St. Lawrence University, SUNY Canton and Canton Central School to address issues related to alcohol abuse.

At 2 p.m. in the Eben Holden Conference Center on campus, undergraduate and graduate students in education will meet with Garbarino for an open question- and-answer session on adolescence and violence.

Garbarino has appeared frequently on nationally broadcast news and information programs including "Nightline," PBS's "NewsHour," "Larry King Live," "Meet the Press," "The Today Show," National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" and many more. He is the author of numerous books about adolescent development, including And Words Can Hurt Forever: How To Protect Adolescents from Bullying, Harassment, and Emotional Violence, Parents Under Siege: Why You Are The Solution, Not The Problem, In Your Child's Life, Lost Boys: Why Our Sons Turn Violent and How We Can Save Them and Raising Children In A Socially Toxic Environment. In February, Penguin Press will publish his book See Jane Hit: Why Girls Are Growing More Violent and What Can Be Done About It. He has been awarded both an Alumni Citation (1990) and an honorary degree (1995) from St. Lawrence for his career achievements.
