ethical guidelines set forth by the NASW Code of Ethics.
Define "sex positive" within social work and society at large. Apply sex positive principles to current practice.
Sexuality is an integral part of life and overall health at any age. Too often, social work ignores its impact on clients, especially adolescents. This program will explore adolescent sexuality and development. This workshop aims to give tools and language for all practitioners to feel confident assessing sexual health of clients and to provide a starting point for treatment. There are additional considerations when working with adolescents and parents regarding sexuality. This program operates from
a sex positive and body positive lens.
