Adult Sexual Health and Healthy Relationships Program
We are excited to launch a new program we have designed. Like our Teen Healthy Relationships program that has been successfully running we are going to start running one for adults aged 19+. This program will occur weekly for 2 hours via zoom on Thursday evenings from 6-8pm. This program will run for 5 weeks. We are hoping to get enough participants registered to begin April 29th. There will be a fee of $10 to attend each week ($50 for the 5 total weeks) which goes directly to our organization to ensure we can keep providing the services we do. If cost is an issue please let me know and we will figure out scholarship options.
The topics will be as follows;
Week 1 – The relationship with yourself. This will entail determining the difference between physical and emotional self care and determining what coping mechanisms work best for you.
Week 2 – Healthy and Unhealthy Relationships/Intimate Partner Violence. This will include recognizing unhealthy behaviors as well as healthy and how to help yourself and others leave an unhealthy relationship.
Week 3 – Inclusion. Primarily focusing on the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. We will discuss proper pronoun and language usage. As well as how to create safe(r)/brave spaces for all. We will also discuss the process of coming out about gender and sexuality and how to support someone doing so.
Week 4 – Sexual Health. Primarily focusing on STI’s, birth control and consent. As well as how to establish healthy communication surrounding sexual health. As well as the services offered at PPNLSHC.
Week 5 – Harm Reduction. Focusing on safe substance use and safe sex.
