About the Event

Training Description 

Talking about sex, let alone talking to kids about sex, is not always something adults feel comfortable or competent doing. To facilitate health choices around sex and developing a healthy sex life for system involved youth, providers and caregivers need accurate information and skills in having "those kind of talks" with youth. The California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act (Senate Bill 89) which went into effect in July of 2017, requires comprehensive sexual health education for youth in foster care and training for foster caregivers, social workers and judges. Learn how to talk to youth off all ages about sex, consent and decision making around engaging in sex. Also, learn how to coach caretakers and parents in having these conversations.  

Learning Objectives 

  • Identify when and how to talk with youth of different ages about sex, sexual consent and sexual decision making  
  • Explain the concept of consent and how youth can inquire about sexual consent  
  • Coach caregivers on how to have healthy conversations with youth about sex, sexuality and their rights  
  • Explain the requirements of Senate Bill 89, The California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act
