Mindsets! We’ve all heard about Carol Dweck’s exciting research on growth and fixed mindsets, but are we putting that research to work effectively?
This week we’ll discuss Dweck’s contention that people have not fully understood how to implement her work, and how we might need to slightly shift our approach in order to be more effective.

Hi folks! Just a quick note to let you know there will not be a meeting of the reading club on Friday 5/1 or Friday, May 8. Find all this week’s events on the CAPP and PREP Training Calendar!
We’re switching it up this week and have a documentary as
well as an article for discussion:
- Let’s Talk About Sex, This 2009 film reveals U.S. attitudes toward adolescent sexuality and the price paid by young people for our unwillingness to talk honestly about sex.
We have a lot to talk about! Remember to register
for the meeting.
Our first reading club meeting was a big hit! Though Jutta
may have broken out into a bit of a sweat trying to put everyone in and out of
small groups, it was great to actually lay eyes on so many people and hear your
voices and your insights. Don’t forget to register
for this week’s meeting and save some time for the readings:
1. From Public Seminar: The
Performance of Transgender Inclusion
2. From Teaching Tolerance: Being
There for Nonbinary Youth
Hope to see everyone there!
Do you have suggestions for CAPP/PREP/SRAE reading club selections on adolescent development, adolescent sexual health, or positive youth development? Put them in the comments, and be sure to include a link!
For our first reading club discussion (which will be April 10 at 11:00), we’re taking a suggestion raised at a provider learning collaborative meeting:
Peggy Orenstein: The Miseducation of the American Boy
In this Atlantic article, Orenstein — who interviewed over 100 boys and young men for her new book — considers why we need to give boys new and better models of masculinity.
