Description: 

Boys and Men Healing is a film from director and producer Kathy Barbini, and co-producer Simon Weinberg of Big Voice Pictures.  Boys and Men Healing digs deep into the impact of male child sexual abuse on both the individual and society, and highlights the importance of male survivors healing and speaking out for the well being of our families, and communities.  Featuring non-offending men, this film shows the profound effects of boyhood sexual abuse - same, intimacy problems, sexual identity confusion, post-traumatic stress, substance abuse or and unresolved rage that led to violence.  Despite such devastating effects, each man ultimately chose the arduous task of healing.  Through counseling support groups and prevention advocacy, each man is a testimony of hope and the ability for survivors to thrive.

The event is free to the public and open to the media, though seating is limited.  Free parking in lots.

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
