I presented the basis of this workshop at WAS 2009 and got very good feedback. It is now updated and I hope I will get a chance to present this new version at WAS 2011. The workshop consists of the theoretical background, a practical introduction with case studies, a training session and finally a group discussion. The goal of the workshop is that the participants shall be able to use the method and independently give sexually abused patients trauma relief. The method yields its best results when integrated in a therapeutic context but it is also possible to use it as a single intervention with good results. This means that the method can be recommended for education of “bare foot psychologists” in humanitarian aid projects.

To explore how sexual health and sexual ethics are represented in the Bible and how these are relevant to the 21st century. God created humans as physical and relational beings. Sexuality is a good, healthy element of that created physical relatedness, with three functions: relational bonding; mutual pleasure; and procreation. The biblical pattern for sexual expression which best accords with these functions is heterosexual monogamy.
How should the Public Health Model be applied so it really contributes to improved sexual health for all? Public Health recognizes three levels of prevention - Primary, Secondary and Tertiary. Primary prevention involves prevention of the disease or injury itself, Fluoride, Immunization, Education to avoid smoking and substance abuse. Secondary prevention blocks the progression of an injury or disease from an impairment to a disability. An impairment has already occurred, but disability may be prevented through early intervention.
The UK has among the highest teenage pregnancy and STI rates in Western Europe and strategies to reduce these outcomes have a high priority. This paper seeks to draw lessons from the rigorous evaluations of three sexual health initiatives: SHARE (a cluster randomised trial (CRT) of teacher-delivered sex education), RIPPLE (CRT of peer-delivered school sex education) and Healthy Respect Phase 2 (a quasi-experimental study of a multi-component Scottish national sexual health demonstration project encompassing youth friendly sexual health drop-ins, social marketing, branding, a parenting component and SHARE).
This symposium will focus on presentation of the results and discussion of a ground-breaking study into the cost and cost-effectiveness of sexuality education (SE) in six countries, commissioned by UNESCO in 2010. Why an economic analysis? Policy-makers all over the world, involved in decisions on school-based sexuality education (SE) programmes, are facing three important economic questions: what are the costs of developing the programmes, what are the costs of implementing and scaling up the programmes, and do the programmes provide value for money?
Cinema is perhaps the most important mass media communication which change paradigms in 90 minutes average. The case of 'Rain Man' is classical in autism studies. Sex has been one of the most important topics since the beginning of movies. We conducted a survey between medical students at UCV in 5th year of the currricula and well trained sexologists in Latin America.
