The 2007 APA Taskforce on the Sexualization of Girls documents how the relentless barrage of sexualized media messages compromises girls’ healthy social, emotional, and physical development. Sharon Lamb Ed.D., a Taskforce member and co-author of Packaging Girlhood, explores the images that overwhelm girls each day and exposes the stereotypes and limited choices present. She will share strategies for educators, counselors, and parents to help girls navigate and resist these powerful and omnipresent messages.
