“Teachers should be given training in working more effectively with boys to support healthier mental and emotional development and the skills to manage health services.”
The Mengage workshop ‘ Boys don’t cry? Supporting the emotional and mental health of boys and young men’ provides teachers, teaching assistants and others involved in work with young males on this concern with a workshop exploring:
- Act like a boy: what research has to say about the emotional and mental health of boys and young men
- Issues and concerns: bullying, sexuality, peer pressure, relationships, pornography, body-image, exclusion, pressure to succeed/exams…
- Being practical: what can schools do to support and enhance the emotional and mental health of boys and young men? Action planning and implementation.
The 3 hour informal workshop is based on research and proven practical work with boys and young men, providing teachers, support staff, and staff from affiliated professions with knowledge about a concern that not only affects school performance but can have an impact across the lifespan – and an opportunity to consider practical solutions schools can implement to address this concern.
£495 – workshop to be delivered by two facilitators.
