Going Beyond the Basics: Teaching Healthy Relationships From a Human Rights Perspective

In recent months, issues of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and the meaning of consent have been topics of conversation in the media, households across the country, and around the globe. The prevalence of these stories underscores the importance of health professionals and educators providing young people with the information and skills they need to recognize and practice relationships that are healthy and respectful. In an effort to help those working with youth to have these conversations, the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute is hosting the workshop, Going Beyond the Basics: Teaching Healthy Relationships From a Human Rights Perspective.

“This will be a great professional development opportunity for people working with youth to obtain practical tools to engage youth on the topic of healthy relationships from a human rights perspective,” said Jackie Eaton, Sexual and Reproductive Health Program Coordinator.

Natalya Mason from Saskatoon Sexual Health will join Makeda Zook and Brittany Neron from Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights to facilitate this workshop in Prince Albert (February 13, 2018) and Saskatoon (February 14, 2018) during Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Week.
