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 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 and sexuality.
This workshop will include theoretical input and practical and experiential exercises. We will share ideas, experiences and learn together and look at the work we do with boys, the relationships we have with them and the difficult situations they find themselves in.
Lunch: This break will be approx. 45 minutes. Please bring a packed lunch and a drink.
Please note there isn’t access to a microwave or fridge at this venue and there are no local shops accessable by foot.
