About this event
The transition from adolescence to adulthood is difficult and can be a problematic time for a significant number of young people. They face new developmental challenges such as becoming independent and making decisions.
This can lead to negative outcomes such as: unplanned pregnancy STIs, unhealthy relationships, increased risk of sexual bullying and exploitation as well as drug and alcohol use and anti social behaviour.
This course aims to raise participants understanding of young people and risk taking behaviour, enabling them to develop the skills and confidence to talk to young people about sex and relationships and develop an awareness of how values and attitudes may impact on their ability to talk to them.
By the end of this session participants will have:
- A clearer knowledge of the context in which young people navigate and which may impact upon sexual risk taking.
- Increased skills and ability to talk to young people about sex and relationships.
- Identified their own values and attitudes and have an increased understanding of how these may impact positively or negatively on caring and supporting young people and risk taking.
This session is FREE to professionals working in Nottingham City, Nottinghamshire Southern Boroughs (Broxtowe, Gedling & Rushcliffe)
The session will be run using MS Teams and consist of a 3Hour presentation with breaks and the opportunity to submit questions using the ‘chat’ function.
