Delta Beausejour

Sexpressions--Sexuality Education for Youth Across Canada
(http://www.sexpressions.ca) and the Society of Obstetricians &
Gynecologists of Canada (http://www.sexualityandu.ca) present a
workshop on Implementing Sex Education for Groups.  Breakfast,
lunch, snacks and workshop materials will be provided.

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 these 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 behaviors
  • 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
