From the UUA website: Our Whole Lives helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. It equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture. Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, Our Whole Lives not only provides facts about anatomy and human development, but also helps participants clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality.
The OUR WHOLE LIVES (OWL) Facilitator Training workshops will introduce the Unitarian Universalist Association / United Church of Christ (UUA/UCC) sexuality education curriculum, and prepare those on teaching teams to orient parents and to offer the course to middle and high school students.
The training is limited to 24 participants and a minimum of 8 people must be registered by one month before the training. In the very unlikely event that the minimum is not met, the training will be cancelled.
Omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and dairy free meals can be specified on the registration form.
Childcare will be available for this workshops. Please indicate your needs on the registration form.
These are very intensive workshops. Please come well-rested and ready to absorb a lot in a short time. PLEASE NOTE: IT IS REQUIRED that you attend ALL three days of the facilitator training.
