Hostile Environments – A Resilience Safari

Issues around gender, sexuality and identity can be hard to grasp for adults at times, let alone children. To help, Claire has created a unique ‘resilience safari’ that helps everyone understand the challenges faced by children and adults as they deal with conformity, identity, sexuality and gender and demonstrates how best we can support those around us going through such battles. From the zebra (life is not black and white polarities – it’s more complex than that) to the lion (find your pride – double meaning intended), Claire will offer you invaluable insights from a world that is simply a jungle to so many of us.
