Wise Guy Workshop 2: Seeing Through the Media Matrix

Young Men in grades 9-12.
Media, advertising, and celebrity all have a powerful impact on our lives. John helps boys understand the subtle, manipulating nature of media’s messages, then shows them how they can defend themselves, deflect harmful messages, and make higher choices about who they are, what they believe and who they choose to become. They will learn to decode ads and see through images and messages designed to prey up their self-esteem. John will also discuss how the media’s sexualization and degradation of girls is harmful to boys. They will learn the difference between real confidence and “false” confidence, and get the tools they need to break free from the media’s constant influence, forever. (special booking)
