Resourcing Boys in the 21st Century

Finding a new language and vision

This can be a half or full day workshop – a half day where Maggie takes you through her findings – a full day where you also workshop a full plan of action.

9.15am - 12.30pm Workshop

In this interactive presentation Maggie will share key findings from her extensive research into the lives of boys, in What Men Don't Talk About and What's Happening to Our Boys? To put these books together Maggie interviewed many boys, teachers, school counsellors, psychologists, law enforcement and medical personnel to get an insider's view on what boys are experiencing right now. There are over 70 boys' voices in the book.
