Course Description

Boys get a bad press. They can be wonderful, dreadful, straightforward, complicated. They say they don’t care when, clearly, they do.

This workshop will be about understanding and supporting the boys we work with, the boys who delight and disappoint us, who surprise and frustrate us. Amongst other themes, we’ll explore boys and sex, schoolwork, intimacy, mother-figures, anger, dependency, father-figures, girls, groups, separation, sexuality.

The workshop is for professionals whose work includes supporting boys. It will include some theory but will also be a chance to look practically at the work we do with boys, the relationships we have with them and the difficult situations they find themselves in.

£95 + VAT (Total £114)
