Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at 7:00 pm



Dr. Oliver will be addressing parents and the general public as part of the OCDSB’s Speakers’ Series.  The free community presentations are designed to create a dialogue between parents, educators, students and community members about issues that impact their lives.


Dr. John focuses his research on understanding how one’s personality combined with situational and environmental factors shape people’s lives. His work is summarized in terms of three broad but interrelated research topics:

(1) The Big Five Model of Personality Traits

(2) Individual Differences in Emotion and Emotion Regulation

(3) Self and Self-Perception Processes.

The professor will discuss parenting strategies designed to support the development of social emotional skills in children. The presentation begins at 7 pm and will be held in the auditorium of Sir Robert Borden High School, located at 131 Greenbank Road.
