To answer the question, Ellen Galinsky reviewed more than 2,000 studies and conducted in-depth interviews with and filmed more than 130 leading researchers who study children’s development and learning. From what she learned, Ellen developed a framework of the 7 Essential Life Skills, published in her groundbreaking book, Mind in the Making. The work grew into MITM, a national movement to share scientifically-based research and strategies for promoting Life Skills, reaching millions of people in communities across the country.

Produced for the Hawai‘i Book & Music Festival by the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Better Tomorrow Speaker Series.
