SHAPE program - Let's Talk ABout Sex

Let’s Talk About Sex

This program provides students the opportunity to explore sexual health communication and promote interaction and open discussions. Group definitions of sexual health will be developed, and a discussion will be facilitated related to interpretations of these definitions as applied to diversity, environment, and culture. The student will demonstrate their knowledge and ability to communicate through small group role playing activities with scenario applications (discussing past sexual history, choosing to be abstinent, negotiating contraceptive use). This program is most appropriate for small groups that have some baseline knowledge and comfort with each other. request it
