Teens are constantly subjected to distorted images and stereotypes, which affect how they navigate the rules of physical and emotional intimacy.
Orenstein will discuss the myths that have seeped into young people’s lives and how teens are handling it. She will examine the expectations, pressures and trends in today’s society and discuss “hookup culture,” sex education, consent and the painful realities surrounding assault. Orenstein will help us better understand our adolescents as we encourage them to become their best selves.
Orenstein is an internationally recognized authority on the sexuality-based challenges facing teens and their parents as teens come of age. Orenstein is the author of The New York Times best-sellers Girls & Sex: Navigating from Shame and Regret to Integrity and Joy and Boys & Sex: Young Men on Hookup Culture, Love, Consent and Becoming a Better Man.
