Description

Foundations: Core Skills Training for Sex Ed
Educators who are tasked with teaching sex education often struggle with how to discuss topics about which they have strong opinions and beliefs and, which may be very different from those of their students. It takes work to become comfortable teaching about sexuality—and this interactive workshop is perfect for educators who are looking for ways to move beyond their own discomfort and advance their skills. The one-day Foundations training covers the essential skills for facilitating sex education, including: climate building in the classroom; understanding state and local sex education policies; pedagogical approaches for experiential learning; values clarification; managing personal disclosure; and handling difficult questions and harassing comments.

Participant Learning Objectives:
At the end of this training, participants will be able to:
1. Describe three strategies that can be used to create a safe and supportive learning environment for teaching sexuality education;
2. Define comprehensive sex education;
3. Describe the experiential learning cycle and how it is used in the facilitation process;
4. List at least three personal values related to sex education topics on which students may hold differing viewpoints;
5. Describe the continuum model for addressing values-laden statements;
6. Articulate at least three universal or institutional values and explain how they can be used in responding to students’ questions or comments;
7. Describe two possible advantages and two disadvantages to disclosing personal information when teaching sex education;
8. Demonstrate the ability to utilize the five-step process for answering challenging questions; and
9. Create processing questions for each stage of the experiential learning cycle.
