In this workshop, participants will explore what it means to help children develop healthy relationships and will learn strategies for teaching consent, respect, and encouraging children’s sense of ownership over their bodies. Participants will have the
opportunity to reflect on and better understand their own feelings about children's curiosity and sexual exploration. Through readings and role-plays, we will develop strategies for fostering children’s feelings of comfort about sexuality and their bodies
while also helping children develop healthy boundaries by setting limits. We will also discuss fears regarding child sexual abuse and learn to distinguish between signs of abuse and behaviors associated with common childhood exploration.
