Understanding Adolescent Sexuality & Teaching Sex Ed

A workshop on implementing sex education for groups

April 11, 2008
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Quality Hotel
Regina, SK

"Many teachers are required to teach sexuality education in one capacity or another. Trends in sexuality change over the years and adults can often be left at a loss for understanding the needs of their students. This intensive workshop will explore new trends in sexuality and provide teachers with accurate information on some of the risks involved in adolescent sexuality as well as allow teachers to become more familiar with the issues and more comfortable presenting sex education materials to their students. Participants will be given practical tools to teach this subject to grade levels 7-11, although discussion and exercises may be modified for elementary levels as well. Topics include:
* Anatomy
* Understanding adolescent sexual behaviours
* Why teens have sex
* Predictors of adolescent sexual activity
* Current trends with teens
* Sexual myths
* STI information & update
* Birth control and condom information
* How to answer difficult questions
* Values awareness
* Tools for teaching"
