Workshops for Parents & Teens
Review the fundamentals of sex-ed and get to the more advanced topics. Parents and teens attend these workshops together, but separate into different groups for discussions and partner work. Anya teaches the anatomy and physiology of the human reproductive systems, women’s health, contraceptive techniques, and basic information about the most common sexually transmitted infections. Participants role play difficult scenarios, such as initiating safe sex conversations or responding to date-rape scenarios. Parents and teens examine the disconnect between real life, media messages, and pornography. They learn strategies for increasing intimacy without fast tracking to intercourse.
