Freedom to Explore Sexual Health (FRESH) Course: Youth Focus

The FRESH Course: Youth Focus provides workers with an opportunity to share learning and build their confidence around sexual and reproductive health. The course utilises adult learning techniques, encouraging participation and activity based learning.

Course Outline

Course topics include:

  • Introduction to sexual health

  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Sexually transmissible infections (STIs)
  • Contraception
  • Pregnancy options
  • Consent and sexual violence
  • Sex and the law

On completion of the FRESH course, you will have:

  • an increased level of confidence working with clients in the area of sexual health
  • a better understanding of how values and beliefs may influence your practice in this area of work
  • a new vocabulary about sexual health and relationships to use when talking with your clients
  • practical skills to address clients’ sexual health needs through assessment, program development, delivery and evaluation
  • become familiar with current resources available and how to use them effectively with clients to explore the many areas of sexuality and sexual health

Depending on the priorities of the group, some content may be negotiated with the Course Coordinator, and some learning tasks may be offered online instead of face-to-face.
