Recently Scheduled – Sexuality Education

Workshop with 1 Credit Course Option

Sexual health education is one vital component of a planned, ongoing and systematic health education program. This training will provide participants with strategies and resources to develop the comfort, knowledge, and core skills needed to deliver developmentally appropriate sexual health education to students in grades K-12.

The VT-HEC is pleased to present a workshop with 1 credit course option focused on supporting educators who teach sexual health education.  This offering, led by experienced health educators Linda King & McAllister,  will cover:

  1. Critical elements that contribute to a safe learning environment when teaching about sexuality in school.
  2. Teaching strategies that are effective when teaching school-age youth about sexuality.
  3. Responding to students’ questions about sexuality free of their personal values and beliefs.
  4. Explaining the value of helping students understand when and where youth can access sexual health services.

 

The workshop will be held on April 4, 2017 at the Central VT Chamber of Commerce in Berlin, VT.  To register or for more information go to: vthec.org
