The Dynamics of Friendship: Are Best Friends Really Forever?
Featuring NYU Professor Irene S. Levine
Tuesday, April 13, 2010 7:00-8:30pm

SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills
465 South La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Join NYU alumni, parents, and friends from your community for a very special evening of lively discussion with NYU Professor Irene S. Levine.

Evidence suggests that at any age or stage of life, close friends are vital to our health and emotional well-being. Yet, the large majority of friendships are inherently fragile and dynamic. What makes some of them "stick" while others fall apart? Are there gender differences in the ways in which men and women befriend? How have changes in technology affected the nature of our friendships?

In her new book, Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend, NYU Professor Dr. Irene S. Levine surveys more than 1500 women and offers her advice on navigating modern friendships. Join Dr. Levine as she conveys her findings, offers suggestions for negotiating and nurturing these complex relationships, and answers your questions.

Irene S. Levine, PhD is a freelance journalist, author, and professor of psychiatry at the New York University School of Medicine, and has also spent much of her career as a senior manager at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Dr. Levine blogs as "The Friendship Doctor" on The Huffington Post and PsychologyToday.com, and has contributed to major publications including: The New York Times, Reader’s Digest, and Self. She has also appeared on The Today Show.

Beverages and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
