A Communication Called "Bullying" - This course is an examination of the phenomenon we call "bullying" viewed through the lens of communication. What is being communicated by the bully, the victim, the bystanders, and the helpless overseers charged with stopping behaviors no one has any solutions for? What do we hear? Does what we hear affect how we respond? Can our responses become more effective if our listening is more attuned to the communication being delivered? These and other questions are explored in this course.

Gender Continuum -  Part 1 of Gender/Orientation Series™

Gender is at the very core of our being—the starting point of who we are, who we think we are, and who we and others think we should be. Gender Continuum deconstructs the concept of gender as binary and offers new views that expand our ability to think about gender. Information and education about transgender youth is the most needed and urgent request from schools and parents today. This course demystifies transgender and provides education that leads to appropriate and healthy responses.

Deciphering the Matrix of Orientation – Part 2 of Gender/ Orientation Series™

After completing Gender Continuum, participants arrive at a new place of inquiry—suddenly with more questions than answers. The labels “gay,” “lesbian,” “bisexual,” and “heterosexual” have stood unexamined for a long time. These quick categorizations, so succinct and cemented, have cost us the opportunity to really learn about orientation. This course poses the question, “What really is orientation?” and allows participants to uncover just how little we know about the answer to this question.

Being & Belonging – Part 3 of Gender/Orientation Series™

The purpose of Being & Belonging is to reveal the fundamental impact of gender and orientation on our ability to be authentic and develop our sense of belonging. This course also delves into the many ways our society encourages youth to treat each other as if they do not belong – namely, the epidemic of bullying so pervasive in many US communities. The current research surrounding consequences of rejection, such as self-injurious behaviors, violence and even suicide, is explored and highlighted.

Masculinity Distinguished

Masculinity is traditionally conceptualized as the predominant position of privilege and power. This course looks beyond what is assumed and examines the constraints and expectations for the illusive "ideal male." We begin a fresh inquiry into the meanings of relating in a polarized gender equation.

Upon Request
Essentials of Gender & Orientation

Are you bewildered, scared, alone, and have no one to talk to about a child who may be gay? What part does gender play in conversations about orientation? If boys are feminine, will they grow up to be gay? What about tomboys? Have these and all your questions addressed in this course, designed for parents and caretakers.
