More About Is there PROOF of Genius in Neurodivergent Individuals?

The Roxbury Arts Alliance's upcoming play "Proof" deals with two of the most interesting questions of our day: What is "genius" and what is, and isn't, mental illness?

In alignment with Mental Health Awareness Month, and ahead of the play "Proof" running for two weekends in May, let's dispel some misconceptions about neurodivergence.

Local Psychologist Dr. Matt Zakreski is the founder and lead clinician at The Neurodiversity Collective, where he provides therapy and coaching. He also serves as a consultant to schools, works as a professor at the university level, and is a researcher and author on his specialty, Giftedness.

Dr. Zakreski will lead the discussion about neurodivergence, where genius falls in terms of neuropsychology, and mental illness. Learn what makes brains work and what makes them work differently.

He will also talk about the strategies and skills that everyone can develop to protect their brains and mental health.

All ages are welcome to attend this interesting and timely event. It is a free event, however donations are greatly appreciated. Please secure your seat ahead of time online at Click for Details Cash and check donations will also be accepted at the door.

Please consider attending one or more showings of the play Proof, which runs May 10, 11, 17, 18, and 19. Attendees at Dr. Zakreski's talk will receive a discount voucher to purchase tickets to a showing of Proof.
