The Boy Crisis

How to Successfully Raise Boys for the Future

What Parents, Therapists, and Educators Need to Know

1440 Multiversity - 800 Bethany Drive, Scotts Valley, CA 95066

August 2-4, 2019

Warren Farrell, PhD | Ashanti Branch, MEd | John Gray, PhD

A crisis of education. A crisis of mental health. A crisis of fathering. A crisis of purpose. These are among the pervasive and significant challenges facing today’s boys and young men, according to Dr. Warren Farrell and Dr. John Gray, coauthors of  The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do About It.

In this interactive weekend, Warren and John, along with  Ashanti Branch, MEd—whose leadership of the Ever Forward Club has turned around the lives of hundreds of boys—will facilitate an important conversation about the root causes of the gap between boys and girls and what family members, schools, communities, and professional peers can do to eradicate it.

This conference examines the neurobiological, psychological, and social features seemingly unique to or predominant in the development of very young males. The conference addresses the question of how these factors may place boys at greater risk for this outcome starting in the prenatal, infant, and toddler periods.
