Nurturing Healthy Sexual Development

What is this training?
Sexual development is not often talked about like physical, social, and cognitive development, but it is very important for the health of children. Nurturing Healthy Sexual Development is research-based and provides adults with the tools and skills to answer children’s questions in an age-appropriate and  medically accurate way. Research shows that providing children with accurate health information promotes healthy behaviors, delays sexual activity and reduces the risk of child abuse.
Who is this training for?
Any adult working with or caring for children can use this training for both professional work and personal life. This training provides adults with tools to help educate and support children with accurate and developmentally appropriate information. Adults will also learn about the warning signs of child abuse. 
"Knowing what healthy sexual development looks like for children and teens is a great step in protecting youth from child abuse. Nurturing Healthy Sexual Development is a free, research-based training created by Prevent Child Abuse Vermont. This 2 hour training is perfect for parents, caregivers, and professionals looking better support the youth they care about."
