Embracing uncertainty

Adolescence can be tough to navigate on its own without having to address questions of sex, sexuality, and sexual identity.  While openly talking about the sexual feelings, sexual desires and sexual development is a challenging conversation for some youth to have with their parents it can be as challenging for professionals to have these conversations as well.  Embracing the uncertainty and possibilities associated with these issues are critical in order to help youth avoid devastating and/or life threatening errors in judgment.  This class will explore myths and facts associated with adolescent development, the porntification of our culture, the fluidity of gender and sex, and strategies to openly engage conversations with youth about these topics.
