Chris Read is a professional anthropologist/archaeologist who has been lecturing at third level for 15 years.
His research interests and teaching encompass a wide range of areas, including the evolution of human sexuality/relationships and their expression across a range of cultures. Recently he obtained a certificate in Embodied Counselling and has trained extensively in the Wheel of Consent. Chris’s extensive experience of teaching and mentoring young adults has highlighted the systemic failure of Irish education to empower young people with crucial knowledge of consent and boundaries.
Chris is a highly experienced lecturer and facilitator and has developed novel ways to teach the basics of consent to people of all ages. As a parent to two teenagers, his awareness of consent and boundaries has positively influenced his parenting style and hopefully, provided his children with some very necessary life skills.
