Understanding Adolescent Sexuality and Teaching Sex Ed

9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (both days)

Hotel Maritime Plaza, 1155 Guy Street (downtown Montreal)

A Workshop for Teachers to Implement Sex Education in to Their Classrooms sponsored by Concordia University, Centre for Human Relations & Community Studies, Association of Family Life Educators ( and Sexpressions, Sexuality Education for Youth Across Canada (

Many teachers are required to teach sexuality education in one capacity or another. As of 2004, the Quebec Ministry of Education has made reforms to the sex education now requiring ALL teachers to teach a portion of sexual health and development from their discipline.

Many teachers, nurses, guidance counselors and child care workers have had little or no training with this subject and its current trends. This program will explore the new trends in sexuality and adolescence and give teachers current and accurate information. This two-day intensive workshop will help participants become more familiar with the issues and get teachers more comfortable with presenting sex education materials to their students. It will give teachers practical tools to teach this subject to grade levels 6-11.

Stephanie Mitelman, CCFE, CSE, is a certified sexuality educator. She is a speaker on sexual health for the National Speakers Bureau and the Atlantic Speakers Bureau and is an Instructor at McGill University and Concordia University.
