Talking about sex, let alone talking to kids about sex, is not always something adults feel comfortable or competent doing. To facilitate health choices around sex and developing a health sex life for system involved youth, providers and caregivers need accurate information and skills in having “those kind of talks” with youth. The California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act (Senate Bill 89) which went into effect in July of 2017, requires comprehensive sexual health education for youth in foster care and training for foster caregivers, social workers and judges. Learn how to talk to youth off all ages about sex, consent and decision making around engaging in sex. Also, learn how to coach caretakers and parents in having these conversations.
