Anyone who works with teens will find this training both informative and useful, imparting the information and skills needed to respond to young people’s questions about sexual risk-taking in age-appropriate ways. Those who work in the STD or HIV prevention or teen pregnancy prevention fields are especially encouraged to attend.
