Don’t Just Do It:

How to talk to System-Involved Youth About Sex and Reproductive Health


Facilitated by Rachel Michaelsen


The registration of those working with youth in Monterey County will be prioritized


Training Summary:


System-involved youth are often in fight or flight states and unable to think clearly about decisions regarding behaviors and activities including engaging in sex. In this training, we will talk about how to talk to system-involved youth of different ages and cognitive abilities about sex. Topics will include sexual decision making; consent; healthy relationships; youth’s sexual rights; what to do, when to do it, where to do it and with whom; pregnancy and disease prevention; and unacceptable sexual behaviors.

        Determine which youth would benefit from information about sex, safe sex, consent, and their rights
