This engaging, interactive (and fun!) workshop is for teachers, social workers, healthcare workers, family liaisons, administrators, and any other adult who works with children and adolescents in formal or informal education settings. Drawing on research and workshop participants’ experiences and questions, we will work together to learn pedagogical ways to respond to topics that emerge naturally in students’ conversations as well as issues that arise in formal curriculum including health, science, and sex education.
