Description

Have you been delaying talking to your children about the birds and the bees? Perhaps you are feeling nervous about saying the wrong thing, embarrassed at thinking about some of your child’s questions, or perhaps you actually just have no idea what to say!

While there are many things that worry us as caregivers, talking to children and adolescents about relationships, sex, and consent is commonly rated as pretty stressful. Unfortunately, without having safe and knowledgeable adults to answer some of their big questions, kids will have to find other ways of accessing the information. This can lead to shame, stigmas, and a variety of misinformation. By educating yourself and being available for conversation, you are not only ensuring that your child has access to relevant information but you are also ensuring that you get a chance to discuss morals and values with them to help them make lifelong, healthy, and empowering decisions for themselves.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

  • Understand the importance of comprehensive sexual health education
  • Recognize signs indicating both healthy and unhealthy relationships and communication
  • Develop language to assist in teaching children about their bodies and sexuality

Your Instructor

Samantha Dover, M.C. is a Registered Provisional Psychologist in Edmonton, AB. Before entering the psychotherapy field, Sam worked as a Director at the Zebra Child Protection Centre in which she supported children, youth, and families who had been affected by child abuse. Through her work there, Sam recognized the tremendous impact trauma and maltreatment can have on a developing child and how critical safe and caring adults are in that child’s healing.  It was also through this work that Sam recognized the value in offering education on some of our more “sensitive” subjects. She believes knowledge provides power and sharing the latest research and best practices on topics that may be a bit uncomfortable allows us to have the information we need to make informed and healthy choices in our parenting or caregiving. 
Sam currently works for a private practice in Sherwood Park, AB where she specializes in treating those suffering from traumas or losses. Sam is a certified grief recovery specialist and has training in a variety of other treatment modalities including, DBT, EMDR, theraplay, and play therapy. In addition to her clinical practice and webinars available through the Institute of Child Psychology, Sam is also an associate faculty member at City University of Seattle.
