Event description

Description

Check Yo Self: Attidues & Values Workshop is designed to encourage participants to assess how their values and attitudes influence their interactions with others, in particular, with young people. Check Yo Self focuses on youth sexual health – working to build understanding, normalization and an assessment of existing judgments.

The workshop’s outcomes are:

  1. To allow staff working directly with young people to create a safe space for discussion and reflection of typically taboo topics.

  2. Encourage participants to feel comfortable discussing sexual health and sexuality.

  3. Adopt harm minimisation techniques when discussing sexual health.

  4. Empower staff working directly with young people to refer to specialists when appropriate to do so.

The program also shares trending youth issues, language, practices and beliefs of young people to keep participants up-to-date and informed.

Our aim is to ensure that staff working with young people are able to give unbiased information that is de-stigmatised, and therefore, empower young people to make well-informed sexual health decisions for themselves. Check Yo Self is focused on the participants’ reaction to topics and issues, and is largely interactive and activity-based.

Check out the workshops offered by the Youth Disability Advocacy Network (YDAN) – they're also free and are just before our session.
