EMMA DEMPSEY & NICK THORPE
11am, Saturday 26th January
What is happening to our boys? Recent research shows them underperforming in comparison to girls in school and growing up to report significantly lower life satisfaction than women. We also know that suicide is the biggest killer of men under 40 in the UK. Reports of "toxic masculinity" can add shame and pressure to our growing men. In the era of #metoo, we need to foster a win-win for gender equality by nurturing emotionally literate boys and enabling them to flourish in all aspects of life and wellbeing - from early years to young adult rites of passage. In this positive workshop, coach-facilitator Emma Dempsey and award-winning writer Nick Thorpe - both parents of sons - bring together the latest research, along with a toolkit of practical strategies for raising attainment and channelling the best energies of boys.
This workshop is suitable for parents & carers as well as those professionally interested in education, gender equality and wellbeing.
This event is included in our Saturday Morning ticket
