Making the Connection: Sexual Health Promotion & Sexual Violence Prevention

Description: 

In this webinar, participants will learn how to boost and sustain their prevention work by connecting and integrating with existing sexual health education efforts. Violence preventionists can make the most of current national research, the Washington Healthy Youth Act, and Washington Department of Health Guidelines. We will discuss best practices related to STD and teen pregnancy prevention and sexual violence prevention. Preventionists will leave this webinar being able to make the case for why partnerships with sexual health are critical, and how to use this information to get into schools and communities.
