Eugene Roginsky is a Chicago based father, author, screenwriter, and licensed psychotherapist who has been working with individuals, couples, and families for over 25 years. He is a co-founder of Educational Synergistic E-Reading System (Ed-SERS) and a wellness educator for parenting groups, seniors, local schools, and students. Eugene is a keynote speaker at healthcare conferences and often provides continuing education to local clinical social workers, counselors, nurses, and other medical professionals.
Eugene arrived in the United States in 1980, and upon seeing the movie 'E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial', instantly fell in love with film and storytelling. At the time, growing up in the city as an immigrant kid, there were little options for entertainment.
Reading became an escape to endless adventures. Eugene's parents incorporated scheduled family reading time, which was frequently followed by an empathic look at the story's characters, actions, and internal experiences. Fascinated with people and universal tales that touch the heart, Eugene launched Growing With Stories LLC. The company's goal is to bring inspirational stories to children, with a focus on courage, empathy, acceptance, and overcoming what may seem to be impossible.
