"Everything My Child Needs to Know About Sexuality, but I was Afraid to Tell" Offered on March 16 in Traverse City


"Everything My Child Needs to Know About Sexuality, but I was Afraid to Tell" will be held on March 16 from 9AM-3PM at the Northwestern Michigan College University Center Campus in Traverse City.  The full day workshop is based on sixteen areas of sexuality that every individual should know.

The presentation will be factual, but fun, with real life stories illustrating the perils of having too little, or the incorrect information in this area.  Examples will be given to help attendees get ideas and create a plan to meet the needs of children and their families.

The workshop is sponsored through a partnership with Down Syndrome Association of Northwest Michigan, Northwest Michigan Autism Resource Network, Michigan Family to Family Health Information & Education Center, Michigan Developmental Disabilities Council, and Disability Network/Northern Michigan.  The cost of the workshop is $10 with lunch included, and a limited number of scholarships are available for families  (The cost is $15 for 5 CE hours for social workers or .5 SBCEU's by the Office of Professional Preparation and Certification Services.) .

There will be no off limit topics, since this workshop will be geared toward teaching teens through adulthood.  Bring your difficult questions and be prepared for an open, frank, and fun discussion.
