Although educators are making huge strides in closing the academic gap between girls and boys, girls are bombarded by cultural messages and images that leave them vulnerable to making psychologically risky and unhealthy choices outside the classroom. This workshop, presented by Harvard clinical psychologist Catherine Steiner-Adair, Ed.D., will address the necessity of educating pre-teen and teenage girls to be culturally savvy and literate, to equip them with intellectual skills to deconstruct societal values and norms that undermine girls’ ability to stay strong, healthy and focused in their development. Participants will learn about best practices and existing curricula. Dr. Steiner-Adair is author of Full of Ourselves: A Wellness Program to Advance Girl Power, Health, And Leadership.

Presented by Teton County Library and Raising Girls. Free admission. This talk is geared to parents, educators and caregivers of school-aged girls. It will run 1.5 hours.

Logistics idea: please consider taking your lunch hour at the end of the work day and having your kid(s) ride the bus to the library after school.
