Positive Conversations: Difficult Topics

Date:
Thu 03 May 2018

Time:
19:00 pm to 20:00 pm

Location:
PLT

On Thursday 3 May Marcellin will host professional speaker and educator Richie Steward from New Zealand. A former Muay Thai professional fighter, Richie now fights for social change rather than titles and trophies.  He has spoken to audiences across the world about family violence, sexual violence and the endemic sexism that allows these high rates of violence to be maintained. A board member at White Ribbon New Zealand and a Ministry of Social Development Campaign champion in New Zealand, Richie is well-known and highly respected in encouraging and enacting positive social change.


Through an interactive presentation, Richie will address the following areas with parents and give them ways in which to start positive and non-judgemental conversations with their sons about these often difficult but extremely important issues:

  • Precursors to violence
  • Links between Pornography and sexual violence
  • Relationship expectations
  • Breaking down elements of popular culture with a critical lens
  • Starting difficult conversations with children
  • How to encourage positive relationships
