Join psychologist Dr. Ganz Ferrance and Global Edmonton's Carole Anne Devaney as they discuss techniques for parents raising children in the 21st Century.

Dr. Ferrance holds a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and an M.A. in Developmental and Educational Psychology from Andrews University in Michigan. He is the former Public Education Coordinator as well as the former Vice-President of the Psychologist’s Association of Alberta. He has also been a regular “Health and Lifestyle” panel expert on Alberta Primetime for over three years and has been presenting a monthly segment on CTV’s Noon Show for the past seven years.

A career woman with three children, Ms. Devaney isn’t afraid to show the good, the bad and the ugly of motherhood. She has a large following on social media, where she often makes light of the realities of parenting. Carole Ann Devaney has a reputation for engaging her audiences, rolling with last-minute changes, keeping the program on time, and, of course, keeping it real.
