PTF Parent Up Speaker Series

Performing Arts Center - Marcus D. Hurlbut Theater - 1000
Each year the PTF works with the school leaders to identify engaging speakers for parent education. This year's series has a health and wellness theme with our second speaker emphasizing sleep habits. Come listen to Dr. Michael J. Breus ("the sleep doctor"} talk about sleep lifecycles and biological clocks as it relates to teenage sleep through adolescence.

Research shows that teenage sleep is a unique time in the sleep lifecycle. When boys and girls hit puberty, the timing of their biological clocks begins a dramatic shift toward a preference for evenings, a shift that lasts throughout adolescence. They are true Wolves, based on the archetypes from Dr. Breus book, The Power of When.

Michael J. Breus, Ph.D. (‘the Sleep Doctor”) is a double board-certified Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Sleep Specialist. He is one of only 168 psychologists in the world with his credentials. His ground-breaking bio-hacking book proves that there is a perfect time to do everything, based on your biological chronotype (early bird or night owl). Dr. Breus has given hundreds of speeches, is on the clinical advisory board of The Dr. Oz Show and has been a sleep expert for WebMD for more than 14 years.
