As healthy sexuality gains momentum as an approach to sexual violence prevention, it can be easy for beginners to feel they are in uncharted territory. This workshop will focus on exploring the basics of the healthy sexuality framework and how it connects to and strengthens prevention efforts. No question or concern is off-limits as we create a space that is centered on increasing participant’s skills, comfort-level and fluency in discussing and defining healthy sexuality. Participants will learn strategies for including healthy sexuality in sexual violence prevention efforts. This workshop will be interactive in format, allowing for activities, discussion, and feedback regarding opportunities and barriers. Note: this is a repeat of the training with the same name in November 2012. It was so popular, we decided to offer it again!
