Sex Ed for Non Sex Educators
Sponsored by Youth Intervention Programs Association (YIPA)
1:45 - 4:30 p.m.
1667 Snelling Avenue North, St. Paul
Sex is everywhere, but talking about it with youth can be very difficult. You never know when, where or how these topics might arise. Working with young people, you will have to navigate questions and situations related to sexual health; are you ready to deal with those situations and conversations? This training will help you develop knowledge and skills around adolescent sexual health that are grounded in research and best practices.
9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Center for Changing Lives
2400 Park Avenue South, Minneapolis
Sensitive questions about sexuality—it's an area of anxiety, discomfort and fear, both for young people and for educators. What is sensitive to one educator may not be sensitive to another, but most of us look for guidance on how to best answer those questions beyond our comfort zone. In this dynamic and innovative workshop, participants learn best practices for answering sensitive questions, gain the confidence necessary to handle questions that arise and in so doing, increase their ability to create a safe, open and effective learning environment for youth.

The Circle process provides safety, and the students will provide the rest. This experiential workshop is developed with health teachers, sexuality educators, student support staff and Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) advisors in mind.
Special for Health Teachers! $10 per Workshop, includes Lunch (in lieu of $65)! Register under "Scholarships." Click here to register.

Ease of access to pornography and the pornification of mainstream media is having a major impact on our culture from a child’s development to adult sexuality and relationships. With exposure through various technologies occurring at younger ages, there is a greater health and public health impact on children, youth and adults. From child porn to youth produced images, younger and younger ages are inundated with a tsunami of sexist and sexploitive messages. Studies are just beginning to show the impact of this normalization of sexual harm on all ages. In this training, you will learn about the implications on gender socialization, brain development, intimacy and sexual behavior as well as ways you can individually and collectively "demand the change" and take back our sexuality and culture.
