This one-day course is for anyone working with young people but particularly those in targeted youth support, pupil referral units or those working with looked-after young people. Resilience and competency building are central to helping young people navigate adolescence in healthy ways.

Building on some previously published models of resilience work, this course looks at how to work with excluded, looked-after and targeted young people to nurture their resilience, maintain their sexual health and wellbeing and minimise their involvement in risk taking behaviours that are potentially damaging to themselves and others.

  1. Ability to deliver high quality sexual health information and education that is in line with good practice guidelines
  2. Increased knowledge and understanding of sexual health issues affecting young people in terms of their social, psychological and physical health
  3. To know engaging ways of working with young people around sexual health, sexuality and relationships
  4. Equipped to support young people to recognise risks and dangers in terms of STI and STD’s
