Scare Tactics Don’t Work! Teaching about Safer Sex

Feedback form is now closed.
STI, birth control, safer sex – you might remember learning about these topics through *yawn* slide shows, lectures or, depending on your age, film strips with messaging that made sex seem scary. The intention was based on the false premise that youth would be scared out of having sex if they just “knew the consequences”. Hopefully you didn’t learn the hard way that scare tactics just don’t work when teaching youth about safer sex. Develop your capacity and comfort to teach about safer sex in effective ways. In this session, participants will prepare to teach about safer sex by increasing their knowledge about STI, contraception and safer sex and by exploring values, teaching strategies, tools and resources. Also highlighted is the importance of mythbusting and using current, accurate and comprehensive information.
