Parents: Helping Your Teens Navigate Changing Gender Roles
Postponed until the Fall.

How do you navigate and guide your tween/teen to a life of joy with the ever-changing social trends of today?  What’s needed now to support teens searching for a safer way?

Center for Domestic Peace is pleased to offer two trainings to parents and concerned adults to deepen their understanding about the new landscape in which teens are navigating. Participants can expect to walk away with a pulse on the current, real-time experiences and expectations of those females, males, and those whose kids who identify otherwise, and practical and effective tools to address those experiences.

In this workshop we will discuss gender roles for both females and males, along with the connection between these roles and dating abuse.

Two seminars from 6:30-8:00PM Zoom – $50 per person, per seminar

  • April 25 for parents of teens who identify as female
  • April 27 for parents of teens who identify as male –

Non-binary? “My lens is focused on how our culture puts teens into two boxes whose messages re-enforce binary gender roles and norms. My students who do not identify as cis gender (as well as my teen facilitators who are non-binary as well) find this approach addresses them in that they are still vulnerable to messaging from this binary system. Becoming aware of this allows them to see how and in what way.” -Charis

Join us for this important workshop with Charis Denison! Proceeds from this workshop benefit C4DP’s work to end dating abuse and domestic violence.
