In this workshop, different aspects of gender will be explored:

  • How have we come to think about what’s “typical” when it comes to gender?
  • How does culture influence gender development?
  • What are today’s children and teens teaching us about gender?
  • What do we need to know to be more supportive as parents and educators?

Come with your questions and concerns. We will share information from developmental, social and personal perspectives.
