Workshop

  • What’s Going on For Girls and How We Can Help Them?: What do girls say are the big things going on in their lives? Why do girls have difficulty opening up to adults? What are the daily issues that girls are concerned with and what can hold them back from reaching their full potential? How can adults better connect with and support the girls in their lives? These, and many more questions, will be addressed in this seminar. The presenter will discuss research with over 3,000 girls in elementary, middle, and high school and will share information on what girls want and need from adults in their lives. From girl bullying, to safe dating, to academic and career development, this engaging and interactive presentation will leave you with concrete and evidence-based strategies to help the girls in your life become confident, competent, and courageous.

“Hinkelman's advice, drawn from her own work with girls, is grounded in current research. While she emphasizes the important role that adults can and should play in helping girls reach their full potential, Hinkelman avoids characterizing girls as too vulnerable or needy. Instead she provides a roadmap for how girls and important adults in their lives can partner to foster girls' resilience during development."
