Working with Social Understanding, Gender and Sexuality – The Understanding of Being More than Male and Female
9 June - 11 June
This professional development is comprised of three weekend courses to build an understanding of the relevant depth and progression anthroposophy brings to this important aspect of life.
An individual can choose to attend any or all of the courses. Teachers, health professionals and those working with young people will find them beneficial to understand how differences and similarities work in childhood development, human relationships and spiritual development in the changing needs of our time. Supporting this aspect of the health and well-being of the individual child’s relationship to gender and sexuality results in greater resilience and confidence in their growing relationship to the wider community.
Throughout the training we look at environmental and community influences on sexuality and gender in young people’s lives. When working out of anthroposophy we are asked not to judge the other by gender and to teach in a unisexual way. Only through deep understanding of the un-freedom of being man or woman can we contribute to the education and development of others in freedom.
This course comprises the Anthroposophical understanding of being more than male and female and how to express the evolving and developing pictures of gender and sexuality to students in primary and secondary school.
It will also include the common struggles that are experienced during both adolescence and into adulthood with a gesture towards freedom.
