Boys and young men are struggling - academically, in relationships and sexually. How can we help them strive to be the best they can be?
On Thursday 29 October at 10am join Graham Goulden, Former Chief Inspector of Police Scotland’s Violence Reduction Unit & Director of ‘Cultivating Minds’ to discuss this issue
How should boys and young men navigate in a world where the phrase ‘be a man’ is often a scary statement? What does it truly mean?
Despite falling statistics in the UK and around the world, murder and serious violence continue to be an issue and levels of domestic abuse and sexual violence continue to rise. Furthermore, the numbers of drug-related deaths and deaths by suicide are also increasing. When we closely examine these issues, it is evident that boys and young men play a major part in these statistics.
We need to stop and think about what’s going on with boys and men around the world. Why are young men most at risk of being both victims and perpetrators of violence? Why are they most at risk of dying by suicide? We need to consider how we could better help boys and men strive to be the best they can be as well as supporting wider communities to become safer environments for all.
Graham will provide an overview of The ‘Boys to Men’ CPD Programme, that he is currently delivering with Professor Ross Deuchar from the University of the West Coast of Scotland. He will explain the reason he developed the training, its target audience and discuss the content.
