Description: Since the 1980s, many in the sex abuse field have raised concerns that sexually abusive youth often emerge from treatment programs with a sophisticated knowledge of what NOT to do with their sexual feelings, but little if any knowledge about healthy sexual expression. Many feel unprepared to enter the world of romantic and sexual relationships. Some come to equate any sexual expression with deviant sexual expression. Others vow to put their sexuality away altogether.

Now, there is general agreement that best practice involves helping youth learn about healthy sexuality, not only stopping abusive sexual behavior. It requires teaching about sexual behaviors youth can engage in as replacement behaviors for abusive sexuality.

For 25 years, Streetwise to Sex-wise: Sexuality Education for High-Risk Youth, now in its 3rd edition, has been a “go-to” curriculum for agencies across the globe serving youth with sexual behavior problems. This interactive workshop, by the author, will introduce participants to the third edition, discuss the methodology for teach sexuality education to high-risk youth, and introduce strategies used in sex ed groups for this population.
