Family Communication and Sexual Health Basics

02/28/2019 | 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

San Diego County Foster Parent Assoc.

Type of Class

Instructors: Karen Murtfeldt, MPH, Community Engagement Specialist II, Planned Parenthood

In this workshop, we will talk about how and why you should be having an ongoing conversation about sexual health with the children and adolescents in your family. Teens who report having good conversations with their parents about sex are more likely to delay sex, have fewer partners, and use condoms and other birth control when they do have sex (Guilamo-Ramos, 2010; Weinman, 2008). Learn tips and strategies for finding the right time and place to have these important conversations.

We will then go over sexual health basics (birth control methods, sexually transmitted infections, puberty, and reproductive anatomy), so you have the answers when the young people in your family come to you with questions.
