Teens often live in a world where they constantly feel under scrutiny. Every waking moment is filled with a sense that they are being watched, their flaws exposed as if under a microscope. They compare themselves to their peers and feel that they come up short. They feel inadequate, unworthy, and often consumed with shame. The feeling of emotional safety often eludes them.
As an MSC teacher, you have no doubt noticed that men tend to be a very small percentage of your classes. Learn more about the particular challenges most men face when considering and participating in MSC classes. This webinar will provide information about some of the underlying causes of this tendency as well as possible ways to engage men more effectively.
