Facilitating Contention Within Sexuality Education
Description: This pre-conference workshop will provide participants with the advanced knowledge and skills necessary for facilitating controversial discussions in sexuality education. Participants will be challenged to move beyond the foundational understandings of conflict resolution and classroom management to embrace conflict as a meaningful, targeted approach for encouraging learning and growth around contentious sexuality topics. Additionally, participants will learn and apply a strategic model for navigating conflict that takes an intersectional approach to pedagogy while centering marginalized students in sexuality education lessons.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: describe the conflict in sexuality education model; apply the conflict in sexuality education model to current controversies faced in their classes; describe two strategies for discussing controversial issues in sexuality education; describe two ways to center marginalized students in sexuality education lessons.
