Description

This workshop gives an opportunity to focus on the emotional needs of girls and how to meet these. We lift the lid on a less well explored inclusion issue, meeting the emotional needs of girls. Everyone knows a girl or woman. They may be pupil, daughter, sister, parent or partner.

Girls will often withdraw, attack or even hurt themselves when under emotional stress and this is not always obvious in the way it is with boys.

1 in 4 women experience domestic violence and every week 2 women are killed by a current or ex partner.

Whilst the world assumes girls have no problems processing their emotions, we lift the lid on this and question what is really happening for girls this century?
