School Sexuality Education as Violence Prevention
Date: Wednesday 25 March 2015
Time: 4pm – 6pm
Location: Visible Ink, 113 Constance Street (Corner of Alfred and Constance Streets) in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane
Family Planning Queensland (FPQ) in partnership with the Australia Forum on Sexuality, Education and Health (AFSEH) invite you to a public forum on ‘school sexuality education as violence prevention’.
Good quality relationships and sexuality education in schools are widely acknowledged as effective contributors to the primary prevention of violence. Research suggests sexuality education can assist in reducing vulnerability to sexual abuse and assault by providing information and awareness about the body, sexual development and appropriate boundaries of physical intimacy in family, partner and social relationships.
Sexuality education offers avenues for students to identify personal and community situations of potential risk, harm, and abuse. Unique opportunities are provided to build safe spaces for ethical and informed child-centred responses.
Together, let’s explore how we can embrace contemporary approaches to sexuality education to support health and wellbeing within schools, families and communities.
