Upcoming parent class on adolescent sexuality

I am pleased to announce an up-coming class on adolescent sexuality for parents.

This class will cover a variety of issues that are critical for parents of current or future adolescents to understand in order to support the healthy sexuality of their children. Because of the dramatic changes in the adolescent sexual landscape over the last decade, I will begin the classes by presenting an overview of adolescent sexuality as it is being enacted in middle schools and high schools all over the United States. Discussion over the following three weeks will include topics such as assumptions about adolescent sexuality and their applicability to our children, what kind of romantic and sexual experiences we hope our children have (or don’t have), and of course, most importantly, how to talk with our children about sex. However, this curriculum is secondary to the interests of the particular group of parents in the class. Substantial time can be directed towards your specific, on-topic interests and questions.

For more information about what we will cover in class, please look at the description of the parent class on my website.

If you would like to speak with parents who have taken this class with me in the past, please do not hesitate to contact me. You may e-mail me with questions or to register. Sign up soon, because class size is limited!

Here’s the info:
Sunday afternoons from 3:00 – 4:30
September 16, 23, and 30, and October 7

  1. Dr Rayne,
    Have you considered offering this class via the web or conference calls, so people could join in no matter where they are, without the expense of bringing you to their area?

  2. I have considered it, and I am talking to people about the quality of different services. If I were sure there was an interest, I would move a bit more quickly. So if you are interested in attending a class via web or conference call, please leave a comment here or send me an e-mail. We will see what we can set up.
