How do girls make sense of a world in which they must be all things to all people: glamorous and hard-working, assertive and caring, collaborative and single-minded?
How do we help girls when they can’t talk about these things and get stuck, enacting their feelings at their own and other’s expense?
This workshop will be a chance to share our learning and expertise. There will be some theory but the emphasis will be practical and experiential. We will share ideas, experiences and learn together. We will think about and practise ways of helping girls who are disappointed, hurt, angry, bitter, despairing, cut off from the world sometimes and, at other times, waging war against it.
