Training Description

To promote sexuality that is healthy and safe for system involved youth, providers and caregivers must feel comfortable talking about sex and sexuality in an age appropriate manner. The California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act (Senate Bill 89) went into effect in July of 2017, requires comprehensive sexual health education for youth in foster care and training requirements for foster caregivers, social workers and judges. Learn how to talk to youth of all ages about sex, consent and decision making around engaging in sex.  

Learning Objectives

  • Determine when and how to talk with youth about sex, sexual consent and sexual decision making;
