“Raising Healthy Humans”: POSTPONED!

by | Feb 12, 2020

Having “the talk” in the #metoo Era

Join Roberta Altamari on Mondays, March 2nd and  March 23rd at 7pm for “Raising Healthy Humans” – having “the talk” in the #metoo era.  Roberta (who is a trained Our Whole Lives leader with 15 years of teaching middle schoolers, teens, and adults about healthy relationships and sexuality) will facilitate a discussion about how to talk to our children and teens about sexuality, power, and the other topics that will be introduced in the Lane Lyceum Speaker Series on the Sunday before our gathering. 

The March 2nd discussion will focus on the sexism, harassment, objectification, and other gender based marginalization as inspired by Florence Graves’ talk on March 1, 2020. 

The March 23rd discussion will focus on promoting affirming, positive, healthy identity to counteract the assault of cultural messages as inspired by Jean Kilbourne’s talk on March 22, 2020.  Parents, educators, and other people concerned about raising healthy young people are welcome!
