Michael Gurian Institute resources
Following Michael Gurian’s keynote presentations at the 2008 Working With Boys, Building Fine Men conference, we were flooded with requests for information on the Gurian Institute’s work in the US.
The two DVDs cover the topics Michael discussed at the conference and expand further on the Institute’s theory and practice.
Raising and Educating Boys
This DVD, filmed at the Gurian Summer Institute in Colorado Springs, covers:
- groundbreaking ideas about how we raise and educate our children today
- nature-based theory and brainbased research
- how gender is set in the brain in the womb, then socialised by culture
- the role of hormones and brain chemistry in boys’ behaviour, learning and growth.
Understanding the Minds of Boys and Girls
What do our children need? How can we help boys and girls? What is the role of human institutions in the care of our children? These are the some of the questions Michael Gurian asks in Understanding the Minds of Boys and Girls.
Also filmed at the Gurian Summer Institute, the DVD covers:
- dynamic technologies that can show us pictures of differences in males’ and females’ brains
- the role of hormones and brain chemistry in girls’ and boys’ behaviour.
