Teaching Good Sex: A Violence Prevention Method

Teaching Good Sex: A Violence Prevention Method, Room: Oklahoma CD

Thursday - September 13, 2018: 10:30 a.m. - noon

Promoting sexual health and equity is a key factor in preventing sexual violence. Oregon has been working for years to align these efforts both in policy and in practice. One major challenge is a lack of training on how to even begin this work. We’re asking generations of people who were taught to be uncomfortable talking about sex, to suddenly be comfortable talking about it, in order to more effectively prevent violence. In this session, we will practice health promotion skills that enhance our practice and help each of us address biases that we may bring into sexual violence prevention work.
