Social Understanding Gender and Sexuality – Professional Development June 26 - June 28

Professional Development Training for teachers, therapists, and engaged community members
with Lisa Romero and colleagues
This training will explore the contribution and struggles of the changing social structures around gender and sexuality affecting us all. It will help to bring an understanding of how to support the child/adolescent in these times and will also address some of the questions and challenges that adults experience. We will explore the anthroposophical understanding of being more than male and female and how to express the evolving pictures of gender and sexuality to students in primary and secondary school. It will also include the common struggles that are experienced during childhood, adolescence and into adulthood. Supporting this aspect of the health and wellbeing of the individual child’s relationship to gender and sexuality results in greater resilience and confidence in their growing relationship to the wider community.  Professional Development Training for teachers, therapists, and engaged community members.
