(Teaching healthy relationships)
Focusing on CONSENT this talk presents key information about healthy sex and relationships which is often not included in sex education but which is vital for young people to learn.
Statistics and studies of the experiences of students in the UK, particularly those at university, show how common it is for young people to experience non-consensual advances and assaults. It is absolutely essential that teenagers learn clear, practical lessons about consent and positive sexual relationships before leaving school.
This concrete, informative and interactive talk, tailored to be age appropriate to the desired year group, focuses on engaging the students and getting them to think critically and practically about the topics discussed.
- Giving students an understanding of what consent is and why it is important
- Equipping students with the language and knowledge of how to negotiate consent
- Discussing common scenarios around consent to demystify the perceived ‘grey areas’ around consent
- To equip and empower young people with the information needed to look after and respect themselves, their friends and their sexual partners
There will also be space for an open Q&A where students can ask any question they like about sex and relationships in a safe and non-judgemental environment.
