Train with us to change the culture for the better, one constructive dialogue at a time! We train professionals / volunteers working with boys and young men to facilitate constructive dialogues with them, about safety, empathy and respect.

Our highly-rated one-day ‘essentials’ training day covers 3 main strands: 

Identifying the range of issues arising from negative social conditioning of boys and young men which manifest themselves in your work with them.

Looking at the societal processes and influences by which this social conditioning is achieved, allowing us to move way from ‘boys will be boys’ fatalism

Looking at the opportunities we have as professionals to offer counter-narratives, alternatives and support for boys and young men in making respectful, empathetic choices. The group spends time walking through sample activities to familiarise themselves with the practical approaches to successful delivery of the 10 Dialogues
