April 28-30, 2004

The objectives of this conference are to provide an opportunity for those working in the area of sexual health to create a forum to examine sexuality from a variety of perspectives; to update and enhance their knowledge and skills in sexual health education, counselling and clinical services; and to network with others in order to share information, experience and expertise. We are looking for papers that address health promotion, physical and mental health, politics and policy, ethical and moral issues and social learning and experience in the realm of human sexuality. Anticipated conference attendees include people with an interest in sexuality such as educators, social workers, clergy, physicians, correctional staff, childcare and youth workers, health care professionals and support staff and other individuals with an interest in sexual health.
