Learn how to understand and support children’s healthy sexual development
Caregivers have a critical role in the well-being of children in their care, and that includes many physical, mental and social components. The new training “Healthy Sexual Development” will help you understand how sexual development impacts and is impacted by other areas and how you can support healthy growth and knowledge.
This webinar shares an overview of what healthy sexual development is and why it’s important, and breaks down appropriate lessons and conversations by age group. Through videos, handouts and research-based narrative, you’ll learn helpful conversation tips (ask open-ended questions), recommended terminology (appropriate/inappropriate touch vs. good/bad touch), and interesting facts (the key influencer of a teen’s values might surprise you).
The webinar offers many opportunities to examine personal values and comfort level, and shares ways to address issues openly.
At the end of the course, you will have the tools and resources to integrate conversations about healthy sexual development into everyday life with children and youths.
