WEBINAR 3/31: I Define Me!

Posted on

IDefineMe

Failed female relationships – many educators see the drama play out on a sometimes daily basis in the form of bullying and relational aggression. Psychologically speaking, the female brain is hard-wired to try to identify others’ emotions and feelings, and to respond with appropriate emotions in the hope for a connection. With girls’ increased sensitivity to relationships, an increased understanding of “self” is vitally important.

Studies by leading researchers have shown that culturally relevant gender-specific groups can have a lasting impact on girls’ well-being. The evidence also reveals that girl-on-girl relational aggression often occurs as a result of low self-esteem, correlating with nationwide increases in discipline rates with minority girls due to negative media influences, environmental factors and low academic scores. A Dove Global Survey (2010) found that 6 out of 10 girls will stop doing something they love or something that will benefit them because they feel negatively about how they look. A World Association study (2013) of women and girls from 70 countries found that 45 percent of respondents think girls are held back from taking on leadership positions because of low body confidence. Girls need to realize society does not define them!

Watch Tracie Berry-McGhee discuss empowering girls.

In the insightful 90-minute webinar, SistaKeeper Founder and Family Therapist Tracie Berry-McGhee will disclose innovative strategies for creating a society of young women who are able to make educated choices, be assertive, practice teamwork and be true to self – displaying self-discipline, increased self-confidence and improved relationships with others.

Ms. Berry-McGhee will use her 15 years as a consultant and facilitator within inner-city, charter, private and alternative schools to pinpoint the strong disconnect that occurs when caring professionals try to resolve this crisis. Using a biblio-therapy poetry model, this webinar will explore and identify negative educational/societal trends, provide fresh strategies and enhance facilitation skills to help girls to be their best selves.
