Sexual feelings and needs are a healthy and normal part of life. The primary focus of this course will be self-advocacy in human relationships and sexuality. Sexual self-advocacy empowers people to have healthy romantic relationships, to make informed choices, to be safe, and to express their desires and needs.

Topics covered will include:

  • Sexual Orientation
  • Gender Identity
  • Changes in Puberty
  • HowOur Bodies Work
  • Caring for your Body
  • Healthy Body Image
  • Reproductive Safety
  • Consent

This course will provide resources and tools to make healthy sexual choices. Students will learn and use medically accurate, and age appropriate, correct terms that prepare them to talk about their body and their experiences. Lessons will consist of a variety of lectures, small group work and engaging activities to learn
complex material in a fun and memorable way.

 

The cost is $75 per 90-minute session. All Ability Wellness can receive payment directly from an approved 3 rd party payer (FI) for those who have self-directed services.
