Parents as Partners: Teen Brain

This event has passed Buy Tickets

Event description

The Gap State High School Parents as Partners program is hosting a twilight session with Teen Brain author David Gillespie.


  • David Gillespie is a lawyer and the author of Sweet Poison, a bestselling book published in 2008 about how we are all poisoning ourselves with sugar. That book is generally credited with starting the current wave of sugar awareness in Australia.
  • He followed Sweet Poison up with 4 more books about nutrition and diet. Having upset the dietetics industry by writing about stuff in which he has no qualifications, he then turned his focus to something else he is unqualified to write about, education, in his 2014 work, Free Schools.  
  • Detouring briefly back to nutrition in his 7th and 8th books (Eat Real food, 2015 and the Eat Real Food Cookbook 2016), his latest target is Psychology.  
  • In 2017, he released his with his much-anticipated book on surviving contact with psychopaths in the workplace and at home, Taming Toxic People, and then this year wrote Teen Brain, a book about how teenagers are uniquely susceptible to addiction and why that is a very big problem in an age where addictive screen time is the norm for every single teen.
