Having a Sexual Health Conversation
March 9, 2018
San Diego, CA
This three hour in-service training proposes that to effectively reduce current rates of unplanned or unwanted pregnancy, HIV, sexually transmitted infections, and non-consensual or exploitative sexual circumstances among youth in care requires thinking beyond traditional approaches. This innovative, harm- reduction model focuses on preparing behavioral health and child welfare workers to have a sexual “health” conversation with youth. This presentation will introduce sexual health conversation tools such as suspending judgments, sexual health principles and sexual health terminology.
