Teenagers & Sexuality — What's Typical, What's Not, How to Respond and Your Role

Teens these days have so much more information about sexuality than most of us ever did! When you understand typical adolescent development, what to expect in terms of healthy sexuality and your role working with teens, everyone is safer.

You will learn:

  • The difference between puberty and adolescence so you understand what’s going on in their minds and bodies
  • Common emotional and social concerns in adolescence
  • How to identify “Pink Flag” behaviors and potential signs of abuse
  • The prevalence of dating violence among teens
  • Appropriate conversations with teens about sexuality and your boundaries and limits
  • Tips and scripts for interacting with teens


  • This class is 45 minutes up to two hours, including Q and A
  • Highly interactive including one-on-one and small group discussions, case study evaluations, and practice using scripts.
  • Handouts, evaluations, certificates and resources are part of the deal
  • Advertising materials

As a child psychologist, Amy’s training is honestly some of the best professional development I have ever taken! This information was glaringly absent from my own professional training program and I feel so much better-equipped to handle the sexual behaviors that inevitably come up in my work with kids.
