In work with system involved youth and their families and caretakers, it is important to facilitate a healthy attitude about sex and sexuality. Many system involved youth have had negative or traumatic sexual experience which may impact their sexuality throughout their lifespan. Learn to understand, identify and talk about sex and sexuality with youth, caregivers, family members and school staff in a way that promotes ease of conversation, healthy decision making and an understanding of consent. Topics to be covered include: anatomy and physiology, sexual identity, sexual diversity, cultural considerations, STDs, birth control, menstruation, talking to youth about sex, sexual functioning, sexual dysfunctions and disorders, sexual consent, healthy relationships, and sex therapy. This course meets the pre-licensure requirements for Human Sexuality, 10 hours, for individuals applying for a license with the Board of Behavioral Sciences.
