OWNING UP: CREATING A CULTURE OF DIGNITY IN YOUR COMMUNITY

February 1, 2019 - February 2, 2019

€650 – €700

OWNING UP: CREATING A CULTURE OF DIGNITY IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Led by Charlie Kuhn and Rosalind Wiseman

Why come?

Social dynamics, conflicts, and bullying can influence every child’s ability to learn. But the reality is educators rarely get training to manage these dynamics. Even if they do, the training and resources can be simplistic or don’t appreciate the educator’s expertise of the young people they work with or the communities they serve. We have designed a dynamic new approach to teach these topics. Based on the second edition of the Owning Up Curriculum, it is also so much more.

Rosalind is the founder of Cultures of Dignity and  is the author of the flexible, dynamic curriculum Owning Up: Empowering Adolescents to Confront Social Cruelty, Bullying, and Injustice. She is also the author of Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World—the groundbreaking, best-selling book that was the basis for the movie Mean Girls.
