The socialization of girls and women leaves a profound imprint on our bodies and minds.  The legacy of gender socialization strongly influences what we considered to be gender-appropriate beliefs, norms, attitudes and behaviours, leading not only to a higher rate of traumatic stress and other difficulties for girls and women, but also to particular resources and competencies.  Drawing on research, cultural differences, client material and personal experience, this presentation will elucidate the complexity of gender socialization for girls and women and offer body-oriented interventions to address it.



This online program is worth 1.5 hours CPD.
