UNESCO Symposium: Cost, Cost-effectiveness and Scale-up of Sexuality Education

UNESCO Symposium: Cost, Cost-effectiveness and Scale-up of Sexuality Education

The study fills a critical gap in the evidence base for sexuality education, and demonstrates that, when planned and implemented carefully, comprehensive sexuality education rolled out through schools is a cost-effective way of mitigating poor health outcomes for young people. Costs of implementing programmes vary greatly and are influenced by a number of factors such as whether the programme is intra- or extra-curricula, the scale of the programme (including numbers of teachers trained per learner), and finally, whether a programme is developed from scratch or adapted from an existing model. The evidence presented is relevant not only to the SE programmes under scrutiny but conveys important lessons for other countries that are planning, or considering, the roll-out of sexuality education.

Trauma Relief: An Integrated Approach for Working with Sexually Abused Clients

Sexually traumatized patients often have problems with flashbacks, nightmares and avoidance. This workshop teaches an integrated method for trauma relief, combining knowledge from NLP, psycho dynamic therapy, cognitive therapy and modern trauma research. The method is based on the human memory storing system, which functions in the same way in all human beings. This means that the method easily can be used cross-culturally and for all gender combinations.

The limits of school-based sex education: Lessons from rigorous evaluations in the UK

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).

Sex and Movies : a tool for sexuality education

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.
