Supporting Boys on Their Path to Manhood 8/13 (Virtual Workshop)
As a parent or mentor, do you sometimes find it difficult to motivate your teen to do what is good for them?
On Saturday, August 13th from 10am-12pm Journeymen Triangle is partnering with the Mankind Project (MKP) of the Greater Carolina area to host a virtual workshop for those working with teenagers. We will explore how best to support boys on their hero's journey to becoming independent, responsible and honest men.
John Craichy will be facilitating this interactive zoom workshop. John is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who works with many teens/young adults specializing in trauma, addiction and change management and he also serves as the Board President of Journeymen Triangle.
Whether your teen is active in our program or not, you can expect to walk away from this workshop with:
- More self-awareness as a parent or mentor and a better understanding of your impact on your teen
- Understanding of your teen's transition from dependence -> independence
- The difference between control and influence as a parent or mentor
- Tools to steward this transition in a way that better serves your teen, family, and the world
This session is a part of the MKP Men's Café. They offer monthly sessions that are open to all men, women, and non-binary, young or old who have a desire to learn. They welcome you to invite a friend or colleague to attend with you and if you'd like to stay connected with future events please contact Bruce Chodosh at email@example.com
This program is offered to all current parents of boys in the program and it will be open to any parents, mentors or therapists that work with teens. Although we specifically support 13-19 year old teenage boys on their journey to becoming men of integrity, we welcome parents of boys & girls to attend the workshop, knowing that this knowledge applies to all parents as well as the general community.
