Why should you attend?
Good relationships are incredibly important at any age as they can influence physical health, promote self-esteem and a sense of belonging, and assist in the development of problem solving and social skills. For young people, difficult and dysfunctional relationships can impact on school, university and can lead to anxiety and unhappiness. It is therefore helpful for us to support them in exploring how best to relate to others and recognise the signs of when a relationship is having a negative impact and understand what to do about it.
Young people have to learn to navigate all sorts of challenges they may not feel equipped to deal with, such as the implications of sexting and the influence of pornography on sexual behaviour. These aspects can play a part in how they see themselves and what they may do to try and fit in. We need to equip them with the resilience and self respect to negotiate these difficulties as an integral part of their independence.
Finally we need to have a continuing, age appropriate, dialogue with young people about sexual health and the adverse consequences of unsafe sexual behaviour.
This workshop gives the opportunity to explore these challenges and consider how best to support young people, including providing information on sexual health.
