Description: 

This is an advanced training provided by Planned Parenthood of Central PA designed for teachers, social workers, caseworkers, counselors, group home and redicential staff and other professionals who work with youth and have a basic understanding of sexual health topics. 

Decision making skills related to sexual health behaviors take more than just knowing the facts about risks and consequences.

We will take a deeper look at strategies that support young people in setting personal boundaries.  Participants will acquire eight lesson plans and learn new ways to communicate with youth about sexual health.

At the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • List 5 components of sexuality
  • Describe at least 3 ways people learn about sexuality
  • Explain the basic steps of the Decision Making Tree framework
  • Describe 4 learning activities that can be used to increase young people's understanding of the importance of setting personal boudaries related to sexual behaviors
  • Explain teaching stragegies that can influence young people's knowledge and self-efficacy related to risk reduction

Description: 

The Central Pennsylvania Consortium (CPC), comprised of Dickinson, Franklin and Marshall, and Gettysburg Colleges, sponsors an annual conference on women's studies. The theme of the 2012
conference, held at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA, is "Gender, Sexuality, and Poverty."

The keynote speaker will be Dean Spade, Assistant Professor at Seattle University School of Law, author of Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics, and the Limits of Law and founder of the Sylvia Rivera Law Project for gender non-conforming people focusing on people of color and poor people.

The issue of poverty is particularly relevant in these times of global economic crisis, and scholars in women’s and gender studies are interrogating how gender hierarchies, gender identity and expression, as well as sexual orientation, intersect with political economic processes to shape people’s opportunities and access to resources. They also explore how poverty shapes women’s and men’s gendered lives in many forms.

Papers are now being accepted. Deadline to submit papers is December 1, 2011.
