Envisioning Healthy Girl Sexuality Webinar - From HGHW

Envisioning Healthy Girl Sexuality Webinar
April 29, 2011; 12:00-1:30 EST

In a sea of toxic media messages, envisioning development of healthy attitudes about sex is no easy task.  Join expert Dr. Sharon Lamb in Hardy Girls Healthy Women’s next webinar to learn what we, as caring adults in girls’ lives, can do to combat unhealthy messages!

Dr. Sharon Lamb has published widely in the fields of moral development, abuse and victimization, sexual development , psychotherapy with children and adolescents, the sexualization of girls, and media and marketing impact on the development of girls and boys. She served on the APA Task Force on the Sexualization of Girls, which found that sexualization in media leads to increased eating disorders, increased depression, and lower self-esteem among girls.

During this webinar, she’ll explore alternatives to the narrow versions of sexuality sold to our youth by the media.  How do we encourage girls’ to use their voices, see themselves as subjects rather than objects, value their own pleasure, and grow at their own pace?
