Detoxifying Masculinity 101

THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR: MALE SPACES

"Don't be such a pussy. Man up. Don't let your emotions show. What are you, gay? Take charge. Be a real man." Masculinity is not intrinsically harmful or toxic, but an unhealthy and restrictive definition of what it means to be a “real man” hurts both women and the men who perpetuate it. This workshop explores how toxic masculinity is constructed by reducing other identities through misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia to assert its dominance and re-writes the script to model a more productive and healthy masculinity.

DURATION: 2 - 2.5 HOURS

MAX CAPACITY: 25 PARTICIPANTS

 

THE EDUCATOR'S TOOLKIT SERIES

EDUCATOR'S TOOLKIT IS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR EDUCATORS WORKING WITH AT-RISK YOUTH TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW CONSENT IMPACTS YOUTH WELL-BEING ANDSO THAT WE CAN CREATE MORE SUPPORTIVE EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS.

Sexual violence does not happen in a vacuum; law, policy, and public perception affect survivor's access to (legal and community) support.

Consent and Policy

THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR: EDUCATORS

Participants will look in-depth at how institutional policies, specifically the school dress code, has direct impact on youth resiliency after an assault by limiting their capacity to ask for support or feel safe at school. We will explore how student emotional health and development are negatively impacted when gender-specific school policy re-affirms victim-blaming narratives that reflect the systematic oppression of XBOSIJDFJ. This workshop is designed to develop educator capacity to create anti-biased educational spaces and understand how ignoring youth voices and concerns can have the direct impact of fostering generational apathy.

Supporting At-Risk Youth

THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR: EDUCATORS

 

What do you say to someone who has just disclosed that they have experienced sexual violence? What do you not say? How do you approach mentorship from a trauma-informed framework that is grounded in empathy, forgiveness, and self-care? How do you support a young person expressing suicide ideation? This workshop is designed to develop educator capacity to create safer, more supportive communities so that young people have at least one caring, caregiving adult mentor in their lives at a time when they need it most.

Your presentation at our staff PD was excellent. You really had people thinking critically about rape culture, consent and other issues affecting our female-identified students... It’s obvious that your experience working with diverse groups of students and adults has provided you with a broad perspective and has informed your approach to delivering these valuable workshops...
