and Sex Education
By focusing solely on risk and prevention, sex education programs often alienate and shame youth who have had sex or experienced sexual violence. This workshop will address the need for trauma-informed sex education and strategies for adapting existing interventions.
1. Describe the impact of shaming media messages on youth who have experienced trauma
2. List the six components of a trauma informed approach
3. Explain a trauma informed approach as applied to sexuality education
