Working with Boys: Resistance, Relationships and Getting Real

Presented by: Mark Tappan, Professor of Education and Human Development, Colby College

Date: Monday, November 21, 2011, 3:00-4:30PM

Recent research suggests that boys who resist conventional masculine stereotypes have closer relationships with mothers and friends, better mental health, and are more engaged in school than boys who conform to those stereotypes. This presentation offers insight and information about how to help boys resist the narrow and artificial version of boyhood that is packaged and sold to them by media marketers, and how to build positive relationships with boys in schools and beyond.
