Before the school break, Glenholme Psychiatric Director Frank J. Ninivaggi, M.D., provided an important lecture to social workers, boarding faculty, and teachers on “Making Sense of Emotion.” The two hour presentation entailed relevant topics from two of his recent books, Making Sense of Emotion: Innovative Emotional Intelligence and Biomental Child Development.
Clinical Director Anna Kallman noted, “The presentation centered on emotional growth and development and how autism and various mental health diagnoses intersect with this process. Staff were impressed and engaged as the knowledge and expertise expanded awareness and helped to build skill sets and understanding that are useful in working with our students.”
Dr. Ninivaggi is a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist. In addition to his valuable work at The Glenholme School, he is also a Clinical Professor at Yale Child Study Center, an Associate Attending at Yale University School of Medicine, and operates a private practice in Connecticut. In 2004, he received the distinction of certification as Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and has authored numerous books including several text books.
