Sex Education’s Problem with Toxic Masculinity

With high profile celebrities like Terry Crews, Jay Z, and Jonathan Van Ness entering the conversation, toxic masculinity has become a hot button issue. But what is the role of sex educators within this conversation? This webinar will explore characteristics and behaviors of toxic masculinity (and the related toxic femininity). We will also examine how biases inherent in messages perpetuated in sex education spaces can lead to barriers in accessing care and services. What would conversations around this toxicity look like without relying on gender identity or sex assigned at birth? This webinar promotes a more holistic approach to discussing gender expressions and gender behaviors in a healthier way.

Sex Ed For All: Skills for Providing Sex Education to People with Cognitive Disabilities

Participants attending this 1-day training can expect to gain a deeper understanding of cognitive disabilities and the importance of sexual health education programs that are designed for this community. We will begin with a brief overview of common cognitive disabilities and how they impact student learning. From there, we will dive into the differences between typical sex ed curricula and curricula specifically for folks with disabilities, with an emphasis on the importance of utilizing curricula designed specifically for this population. Acknowledging that many educators may not have the resources to purchase a new curriculum, we will also spend time discussing adaptations and participants will practice applying these skills to curriculum. Next, we will discuss strategies for educators whose schools utilize an inclusion model to help ensure that students with cognitive disabilities are engaged and learning while in a typical classroom setting. The session will close with time for a question and answer session that encourages participants to think about how they can apply these strategies to their work and troubleshoot potential roadblocks.
