Here are several topics on which I have been frequently asked to speak. I have also tailored talks in response to more specific requests.
Reaching Boys, Teaching Boys
Based on a 2010-2012 study of over 2,000 adolescent boys and their teachers from schools in six different countries, this talk offers a framework for engaging boys in learning that has been validated by educators and by boys themselves. The talk can also be adapted to a workshop format, allowing teachers and youth workers to share their own experiences.
I Can Learn From You: Boys as Relational Learners
Based on a 2012-2014 study based in 36 schools in six different countries, including over 2,000 teachers and their male students, this talk or workshop shares strategies for helping boys establish a working partnership with a teacher or coach, tips on what behaviors cause these relationships to break down, and a strategy for repair when they do lapse.
The New Boyhood: The Power of Relationships to Build Good Men
Based on the extensive research and experience summarized in his forthcoming book, this presentation is a timely consideration of how boyhood has undergone an historic shift in response to social and economic change and focuses on how to help parents, teachers and boys themselves adapt.
What’s Going On in Boys’ Lives Today
Based on experience in a variety of family, school and community contexts and grounded in ongoing contact with boys, this presentation considers key dimensions of boyhood that present special challenges for those caring for them: health and bodies, sports, sex and affection, digital life, violence, education, and others.
