Dakota Hope Hosts Sex Ed Course for Nurses, Teachers and Social Workers

News

The Dakota Hope Clinic and Ascend hosted a sex education course for nurses, teachers and social workers.

The focus of today and tomorrow’s classes are to teach sexual abstinence.

Schools have been teaching reduction for years–with such things as how to use condoms and giving consent.

Now, the focus has switched and they want to teach kids abstinence… 

One school counselor says she’s going to take the information she learns back to her school district. 

“I want to be prepared if a student does come to me as far as teen pregnancy and something that maybe wasn’t planned because they engaged in these risky behaviors,” said school counselor Janae Gravesen.

“But, that is a big part of my role as a counselor, I see students that maybe made a poor choice or have a hard time having the refusal skills or different things like that,” she said. 

A 2015 Youth Risk Behavior survey says 59 percent of high schoolers haven’t had sex yet.
