Little Blackbird Programme
Promoting Positive Masculinity
How do we promote positive masculinity?
A session for Teachers and Support Staff
By recognising and being equipped to address concerns relating to negative stereotypes around masculinity at the earliest opportunity, participants can promote healthier and more positive expressions of masculinity, supporting a more equitable and inclusive group of young people.
Key components of the session will include exploring what Toxic Masculinity is and how is it linked to mental health, the perception of masculinity amongst young people, the role of teachers and support staff in nurturing / modelling more positive attitudes and changing thought processes.
Bespoke sessions can also be developed, with staff learning interventions that they can deliver with young people to address specific issues.
