In this three-part series of workshops, we will consolidate our knowledge of the forces that shape growth in children and young people, collectively and as individuals. We will begin with an exercise in self-awareness, considering the differences and similarities we share. We will explore our intersectionalities, a term coined by Kimberlee Crenshaw, Professor of Law at UCLA, to delimit the margins of race and gender (1989). We will practice inclusion by becoming more aware of our intersectional likenesses and dissimilarities.

Part of the The Role of Schools in Fostering Resilience in Children: A Guide for School Mental Health Professionals Seminar Series.
