About this event

--- This session takes place over two mornings: This is day one of two.

This training will help you, as a foster carer, talk to young people in your care about sexual health and help them to live healthier lives

Talking to young people about their sexual health can be a challenging experience. In this training, we draw on our 55 years of expertise of talking to young people about their sexual health and provide best practice on how to discuss a range of sexual health topics.

This training is based on the context of children and young peoples lives including their vulnerabilities, and the responsibilities of Carers to talk to young people about issues relating to relationships and sex.

Learning outcomes: by the end of the training participants will be able to…

• Learn about topics and issues affecting young people, and the need to talk to young people, and specifically looked after children, about sexual health.

• Explore scenarios and statistics related to young people in care.

• Develop your skills to support young people to achieve safe, healthy, happy relationships, including how to talk to young people about sensitive topics

• Introduce topics such as sexually transmitted infections, contraception, keeping young people safe, sexuality and gender.

• Understand your own values in relation to sexual health.

• Access to free resources and ongoing support

The training is CPD certified and certificates will be issued in due course after the event and administration process.
