Event Summary

Challenging conventional ideas of how boys learn and grow, Dr. Reichert’s research underscores the importance of a relational approach in raising and educating boys to nurture their strength and resilience. Offering a timely consideration of how boyhood has undergone an historic shift, Dr. Reichert will focus on helping parents, teachers, and boys themselves adapt socially and emotionally, especially as we face today’s unprecedented challenges.

Dr. Reichert will also comment on our current situation with distance learning and its impact on boys.
