Positive Images Workshop 12/14/12

Planned Parenthood of Hawaii & Hawaii Youth Services Network present Positive Images: Teaching Abstinence, Contraception, and Sexual Health

Friday, December 14, 2012
8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Best Western Airport Hotel
Honolulu, Hawaii

 

The Positive Images workshop is based around the popular manual that features 29 lessons for teaching about abstinence, contraception, and other aspects of sexual health. Participants can use the lessons, which contain more than 50 handouts and interactive worksheets, to help students:

·       Understand that the option not to have sexual intercourse is a basic human right that an individual can assert at any time in any relationship. 

·       Assess whether they are at risk for an unintended pregnancy or sexually transmitted infection (STI). 

·       Build decision-making and communication skills to work with a partner to assume responsibility for contraception, safer sex, or abstinence. 

·       Understand that taking care of one’s reproductive health is an integral part of being a sexually healthy adult. 

In addition, each participant will receive a Contraceptive Methods Teaching Kit and learn about the latest FDA-approved contraceptives on the market today. This is a fantastic opportunity to get your very own, highly coveted birth control methods teaching kit!

This workshop is essential for middle and high school teachers, community health educators, youth-serving professionals, and staff involved with teen pregnancy, STI, and HIV prevention programs.

Planned Parenthood of Hawaii's Sonia Blackiston and Kathleen Stofocik will lead this interactive and fun workshop. Both trainers have led numerous sexual health workshops across Hawaii, including Sex Ed 101 for Educators, Contraception and STI 101, I’m Askable, Avoiding the Wide Eyes and Giggles, and HOPE (Helping Our Parents Educate).
