Talking With Teens About Healthy Sexual Relationships (November 2010)
This 75-minute Webcast will help pediatricians and other health care practitioners, as well as parents, learn how to incorporate a practical and positive approach to talking with youth about healthy sexual relationships. A comparison of sexual health and activity amongst youth in the United States and the Netherlands is offered as a starting point for a new paradigm shift for engageing youth in discussion about healthy sexual relationships.
