Workshop Description:

Adolescence is a pivotal lifestage that encompasses significant changes in cognitive functioning and psychosocial development (Coker et al., 2022). One area of change for a teen may be their exploration of sexual health.  Sex is common topic, frequently explored in social media, media, and in peer-relationships (Patterson et al., 2019).  As teens begin to explore their sexual desires and identity, it is crucial to account for the potential conversations about safety and access to safe resources (Koren, 2019; Patterson et al., 2019; Tuitt et al., 2020). 

This presentation will explore developmental implications of teenagers and sexual health.  Within the presentation, communication approaches on tough subjects such as internet safety, safe sex, pregnancy, and conversations with family members will be addressed. Participants will walk away from this presentation knowing how to handle those “tough subjects”.

 

Workshop Learning Objectives:

After attending this introductory level workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify approaches to address sexual health and wellness with teenagers and guardians;
  2. Discuss safety surrounding sexual behaviors that teens may face;
  3. Identify resources and interventions to use in session with teenage clients.

This program meets APA’s continuing education Standard 1.1: Program content focuses on application of psychological assessment and/or intervention methods that have overall consistent and credible empirical support in the contemporary peer reviewed scientific literature beyond those publications and other types of communications devoted primarily to the promotion of the approach.
