Developing emotional literacy alongside social norms is an important part of navigating social relationships. In this three-part series, we will address how to name, frame, and navigate the range of feelings that can occur during and after the onset of puberty: self consciousness, crushes, romantic feelings, embarrassment, awkwardness, confusion about gender and attraction, need for peer approval, and more. We will address these topics with an eye towards establishing group norms that promote safety, joy, accountability, and consent. Topics covered will include how to navigate gossip, rumors, drama, digital divides, and friendships.
Dates: Oct 18 – Nov 1, 2020, Sundays 1pm-2:30pm PT.
