Course Description

Course Description

Talking with teens about sex-related topics, including healthy relationships and the prevention of STDs and pregnancy is an important but often difficult task. The purpose of this brief course, developed using information from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, CDC, and Child Trends, is to give parents and other adults practical suggestions to help make this task easier. Barriers that make communication difficult, especially with certain cultures, are discussed, as well as actions and approaches to improve these conversations. The course will be beneficial for educators, counselors, and other adults who interact with teens and their parents.

Course Objectives

1. Identify practical actions for parents to help strengthen their efforts to engage positively with their teens and to have meaningful discussions with them about sex-related topics.

2. Summarize what teens are saying about how their parents communicate with them about sex, and review their ideas on how this can be improved.

3. Discuss the various topics that should be covered when addressing teen sexuality and healthy relationships.

4. Explain how culture and heritage may impact messages about dating, sex, contraception, and teen parenthood, especially in the Latino community.

5. Analyze barriers to effective communication between adults and teens and identify factors that make communication easier.
