An Evening With Rosalind Wiseman
Queen Bees & Masterminds: Helping Young People Navigate Friendship, Social Conflict & Popularity
Wiseman’s talk will focus on creating cultures of dignity for young people, pulling back the curtain on what’s really going on in children and teens lives and showing the critical importance of social-emotional learning to their overall health and happiness. From young people’s friendships, social media use, gossip, drama, bullying, and the constant pressure to “keep up,” she will share how children and teens develop their sense of self and guide their decision making in everything from their academic choices, friends, and how they manage conflict. In addition, she’ll give concrete advice to parents and educators so they, in turn, can guide their children through the normal yet challenging problems young people face – while avoiding the common communication breakdowns and power struggles between children and adults.
