In the era of #metoo, we need to foster a win-win for gender equality by nurturing emotionally literate boys. This workshop brings together the latest research, along with a toolkit of practical strategies for channeling the best energies of boys.

CELEBRATING GIRLS

RACHEALE HAMBLETON & EMMA DEMPSEY

Girls today face pressures on a daily basis from social media, celebrity culture, premature sexualisation and bullying, leading to a generation of teenage girls with a full on identity crisis. Eating disorders, body dysmorphia, self-harming, low self-esteem, binge-drinking, panic attacks and exam anxiety, are just some of the symptoms.  How can we raise our girls to be independently-minded and confident so they can face the challenges of today’s society? Emma Dempsey is joined by Part Time Working Mummy for this workshop on how to raise the self-esteem and channel the best energies of girls.
