Chapter Meeting Updates and Announcements
Topic: Parenting to Improve Bonding and Cooperation with Your Child with Wendi Schirvar, Ph.D
Meet Christina Ramsey- MPS K-8 Talent Development &
Advanced Academics Facilitator
Contact Jess Khan for questions: [email protected]

Wendi M Schirvar, Ph.D. works with children, adolescents and families with a variety of issues including asynchronous development, non-compliant and resistant behaviors, executive functioning and social skills deficits, emotional and behavior dysregulation, and learning problems.

With a background in Child Development, Attachment Research, Parent Education and Educational Psychology, she brings an eclectic blend of theory and practice to her work assisting individuals and families with specific behaviors as well as parenting issues (strengthening families and redirecting difficult behaviors), testing concerns, school advocacy, educational planning and family goal setting. She has a particular specialty with developmentally advanced students and their families and is the Minnesota Liaison to the national organization SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of Gifted Students).

Her philosophy is grounded in the premise that all families have strengths, apparent or yet to be discovered, and her “work” is to empower, coach and support families to realize and maximize their strengths together. She is impassioned to bring this to fruition through a soon-to-be-published book to support parents and providers on teaching emotional awareness and regulation.
