The Mystery of the Missing Theory: Why Sex Ed Has So Little Theory, Why That Works Against Us, and What We Can Do About It
Description: What is the CREATE theory of Sex Education with adults and how did it come about? Why is there so much written about sex education practice, but so little actual sex education theory? This session makes strong arguments and gives easy suggestions for we as practitioners to actively and consciously think about sex ed theory, to contribute to it through our work, and to see the meaning and impact of our work grow as a result.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: identify the need for sex education theory and the impact of its lack; recognize cultural biases as the reason for the lack of theory; name at least 2 components of the CREATE theory of sex education with adults.
