This training gives a detailed overview of the Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act (Senate Bill 89). A review of sexual and reproductive health rights of youth in foster care will be addressed. The duties and responsibilities as a caregiver, as well as those of the caseworker will be detailed. Further, how to engage with youth about sexual and reproductive wellness and current contraceptive methods are highlighted. This discussion will give guidance on how to have these conversations in a manner that is medically accurate, developmentally and age-appropriate, trauma informed, and strengths-based. Participants will be given age-appropriate resources to share with youth.
