Tricky Questions & Tough Topics

Do your palms get sweaty when clients ask you questions about sexuality topics? Not sure what information to share regarding sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice or organizations to connect community members to? Join this three-hour training to learn professional techniques to help you communicate about sexuality with clients more effectively and confidently.

Participants will also learn how to make referrals for sexual and reproductive health care. At the end the training, participants will be able to:

  • demonstrate techniques to use in conversations about sexuality;
  • better understand their own values and distinguish them from their professional role;
  • interrupt shame-based comments and offer healthy messages;
  • discuss the differences between sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice and organizing for change

Tricky Questions & Tough Topics provides essential information every provider should know, including those who don't work in the sexual and reproductive health field.
