Let us empower your teachers to answer difficult questions related to relationships and intimacy with their students.

Hope Clinic for Women welcomes teachers to a professional development experience hosted by our Relationship Education Specialists. This experience prepares you to engage with students on sensitive topics related to intimacy and relationships from the Sexual Risk Avoidance theoretical model.  You will be able to understand the nature of adolescence relationships and help students develop healthy choices now to set up a successful future. We will cover a range of topics: foundations of healthy relationships, boundaries, physical and emotional effects of sex, consent, and online safety. We are available to present to a school or a small group of teachers. For more information, contact one of our Relationship Education Specialists at relationshiped@hopeclinicforwomen.org.
