Relationships, Sexuality and Identity: Supporting Adolescents on Their Journeys
Adolescence is a time when many young people explore romantic and sexual relationships and form their sexual identities.
This interactive workshop will explore adolescent sexuality, sexual health, and relationships from a strengths-based approach, including everything from social media to sexual identity development to dating violence and consent. The audience will have opportunities to explore their own areas of discomfort and bias when working with adolescents around these topics. The workshop will also provide strategies and resources to support participants in working effectively with adolescents as they navigate relationships and sexuality.
Participants will be able to:
- Review key terms and concepts related to adolescent relationships, sexuality, and identity
- Consider a strengths-based approach to adolescent sexuality, sexual health and relationships
- Explore areas of personal discomfort and bias when working with adolescents around these topics
- Practice strategies for working effectively with adolescents as they navigate relationships and sexuality
