Sex education drive opposed.  

PubMed

The Catholic Bishop's Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) recently expressed its opposition to sex education modules being taught in elementary and secondary schools under the government's population education program. In a press statement, CBCP president, Archbishop Oscar Cruz stressed that parents are responsible for teaching their children about sex and that they should closely monitor initiatives to provide their children with sex education outside of the home. The CBCP supports parents' right to reject and withdraw their children from any form of sex education which is not subsidiary and subordinate to their parents' guidance and control. That position is consistent with the doctrine affirmed in Pope John Paul II's Encyclical Familiaris Consortio. Meanwhile, in Davao City, nongovernmental organizations have appealed to educators to provide sex education correctly and accurately, without fear and religious admonition. World Health Organization research has found that teaching youth about sex correctly and accurately delays the initiation of their sexual activity. Otherwise, media influences and the earlier onset of puberty are making adolescents sexually active at earlier ages. Many teachers are afraid to discuss sex, partly due to prevailing religious conservatism. PMID:12294580

Identifying the important factors associated with teaching sex education to people with intellectual disability: A cross-sectional survey among paid care staff†  

PubMed Central

Background Sex education programs have been developed with paid care staff as sex educators. However, no information is available about whether these programs are being delivered. Method The aim of this study was to investigate whether paid care staff working in an organisation specialised in the care of people with mild to moderate intellectual disability teach sex education or not. An online questionnaire was therefore constructed to assess the important factors associated with teaching sex education. Results Of the 163 staff members who completed the questionnaire, 39% provided sex education. Results show that it was mainly provided reactively. The main factor was the perceived social norm towards teaching sex education. Conclusions If we want paid care staff to teach sex education reactively, then we need to focus on changing the perceived social norm. However, if we want them to teach sex education proactively, a new needs assessment should be conducted in order to identify the important factors to motivate and enable them to provide sex education.

Sex education among Asian American college females: who is teaching them and what is being taught.  

PubMed

Many parents are reluctant to educate their Asian American adolescents on sexual health topics because sexuality is taboo in most Asian cultures. A survey was conducted with Chinese, Filipina, Korean, and Vietnamese college females ages 18-25 to assess sources of abstinence and birth control education and age of sexual debut. Parents were the least reported source of sex education for all four ethnic groups, with the majority of respondents reporting school as their source of sex education. Respondents who reported family as their source of abstinence education had a sexual debut of 6 months later than those who did not. Females who reported family as their source of birth control education began having sex more than 7 months later than those who reported other sources. Disaggregation of data by Asian ethnic groups and examining differences in delivery of sex education among ethnic groups may improve school curricula and sexual health. PMID:22763460

Sex education in France.  

PubMed

The French Family Planning Movement (MFPF) has actively been involved in sex education within schools. In 1989, more than 1500 presentations were made to 23,000 pupils. Another activity is monitoring the application of statutes and regulations, for abortion, contraception, and sex education, and fighting to save and advance the rights of sexuality experts. Because of MFPF prominence in serious risks such as AIDs, sexual abuse, and rape, credibility has been enhanced. MFPF serves as a vehicle to change attitudes on male/female relationships. The government has permitted involvement in the preparation of a teaching program dealing with sexual abuse. The dominant influence of the Catholic Church on education has been evident since 1807. Up to WWI, religious morality was dominant. With Freud's contributions to the importance of sexuality in individual life, there were questions raised and a call for change in values and customs. In 1967, the statute was passed which authorized contraception, and sex education became an important issue. In 1973, Fontanet as Minister of Education outlined the recommendation for sex information and education in schools, including reproduction. Further official supportive recommendations were not made until 1985 when life education was entered into the primary syllabus. There was no provision even for teacher training; hence a wide variability in skills, commitment, and attitudes prevailed. MFPF reflects a position on tolerance in listening to others, expression and analysis of differences and critical thinking, identifying difficulties in talking about sex with respect to cultural and religious diversity, and help for the young in learning about their bodies, expressing feelings, and taking charge of emotions.

Teenage relationships and sex education.  

PubMed Central

Most of the consequences of early intercourse affect the woman and much research has focused upon her. As part of a study on teenage pregnancy, where 137 women were interviewed, 46 men were also interviewed. They were less likely to have had teaching about sex from parents and were subject to less parental supervision than the women. Both sexes had had similar experience of school sex education. Just under half of the men started having intercourse before 16 years. Over half of both sexes were initiated by an experienced partner and for 15/25 (60%) of the men this was within the first month of a relationship. Most men had had several partners and 27/99 (27%) of teenage women at least three, most in the context of stable relationships. 'Serial monogamy' exposes each partner indirectly to their partners previous partners (with the associated medical risks). Education must help teenagers make decisions about sexual involvement that take account of these facts and the implications for their own future health and happiness. PMID:3415330

Sex education leads to safer sex.  

PubMed

This article reports on a range of topics about sex education and the effectiveness in reducing the initiation of sexual activity and in increasing contraceptive use. A teenager's perspective is given on what the primary barriers are to contraceptive use. These barriers are identified as guilt and embarrassment, lack of knowledge, peer pressure, communication difficulties, inexperience, lack of access, official and cultural barriers, physiological considerations, coercion, and philosophical issues. Program effectiveness is influenced by the nature and extent of community involvement. Community norms must be respected and incorporated into the sex education program. The risk of program opposition is thought to increase when teachers, parents, and community leaders are not consulted. Program success may depend on parental permission and accessibility. Effective programs must offer accurate information and creative learning activities, such as role plays and peer counseling. Adolescents must be consulted about their views on social norms on sexual activity and contraceptive use and given the opportunity to make their own decisions. Information must be given in a nonjudgmental way. The Director of the International Center on Adolescent Fertility recommends among other things, the involvement of males and linking pregnancy prevention with AIDS prevention. The Director of the San Jose School Health Centers in the US recommends jobs for youths or other youth opportunities as the best contraceptive. The Guyana Responsible Parenthood Association trains out of school youth in sex education and vocational skills. Studies of school based clinics in the US reveal access to contraception does not increase or hasten sexual activity. Evaluations of adolescent sex education programs are difficult, costly, and not comparable between programs. A World Health Organization review of nineteen sex education programs in schools finds that sexual activity is delayed or decreased. The timing of sex education before the onset of sexual activity is considered important. PMID:12287158

[Teens and sex education].  

PubMed

It is widely debated among mental health professionals, among whom I include myself; the fact that not only teenagers who come to our clinics need good sex education, but that parents and/or legal guardians, often also it would be beneficial. I do not mean much to the sexual practice itself; the mechanics or completion of the act, as well as the training that is not received, when dealing with certain issues with young adolescents. Why can cost both accept that, well before age 17, have already fully developed sexuality? The answer could be as simple as saying that, it's not on focusing on the "do" but, from the "feel" and the latter field seems to be much more muddy and complex than the first. The management process of sexual development of our children and teens, begins when we are ready to grow ourselves in this respect, to overcome conflicts, needs, fears and insecurities of their own. Only then, when we will be able to become true and effective sexual educators and counselors of the young. PMID:23654187

Education protects health, delays sex.  

PubMed

Sex education can help prevent the risk of unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) by providing information to young people about reproductive issues and encouraging the consistent use of contraception or STD protection. In Jamaica a study surveyed about 500 students 11-14 years old and found that only 27% of girls and 32% of boys knew that getting pregnant during the first intercourse was possible. Similar lack of accurate information was found in other regions among young people. In India 80% of 100 girls seeking abortion did not know that sexual intercourse could lead to pregnancy or STDs and 90% did not know about contraception. Among 370 Russian high school students surveyed only 25% of the girls and 35% of the boys knew that condoms were intended for only a single occasion of use. A survey in 17 high schools in Bucharest showed that lack of information on reproductive health was one of the main reasons for unplanned pregnancies and abortion among Rumanian youth. Lack of vital information is one of the reasons for the low use of family planning among adolescents. The evaluation of sex education among young adults shows that formal sex education programs can increase the knowledge of reproductive health. In Tanzania a school-based program for students 13-15 years old showed an increase in knowledge about AIDS and decrease in those wanting to have sex. Attaining behavior change is the focus of these programs, but few studies deal with the results of sex education. Several family planning programs have incorporated elements of behavior change into sex education programs for young people, e.g., the Planning your Life program in Mexico, with information about pregnancy, disease prevention and STDs, relationships, decision-making, communication, and assertiveness. The Sexuality Information and Education Council lists concepts in a comprehensive sex education program: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture.

The case for comprehensive sex education.  

PubMed

Half of all new human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections in the United States and two thirds of all sexually transmitted diseases (STD) occur among young people under the age of 25. It is estimated that by the end of high school, nearly two thirds of American youth are sexually active, and one in five has had four or more sexual partners. Despite these alarming statistics, less than half of all public schools in the United States offer information on how to obtain contraceptives and most schools increasingly teach abstinence-only-until-marriage (or "abstinence-only") education. There is little evidence that abstinence-only programs are successful in encouraging teenagers from delaying sexuality activity until marriage, and consequently, avoiding pregnancy, or STD or HIV infection. Comprehensive sex education, which emphasizes the benefits of abstinence while also teaching about contraception and disease-prevention methods, has been proven to reduce rates of teen pregnancy and STD infection.

Family planning / sex education / teenage pregnancy.  

PubMed

The Alan Guttmacher Institute's "State Reproductive Health Monitor: Legislative Proposals and Actions" provides US legislative information on family planning, sex education, and teenage pregnancy. The listing contains information on legislation including the state, the identifying legislative number, the sponsor, the committee, the date the bill was introduced, a description of the bill, and the bill's status. The bills cover: 1) family planning services and programs, e.g., requiring the Department of Human Services to provide written information concerning the availability of the Norplant contraceptive implant through the Medicaid program adding chlamydia screening to the existing law, or requesting a study assessing the social and financial impact of mandatory health insurance for contraceptive devices; 2) parental consent and notice for contraception legislation; 3) school-based clinics and school health services, e.g., establishing health screening programs in public schools, allowing school-based health centers to dispense drug prescriptions; 4) sex and health education, e.g., urging all school boards to require all public elementary, middle, and high schools that teach sex education to emphasize abstinence from sexual intercourse as the only effective protection against pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases and to require that information about sexual assault by an acquaintance and related issues be included in sex education courses in public schools; 5) teenage pregnancy prevention and care programs, e.g., requesting the public health, welfare, and labor committee to conduct a study of efforts to reduce infant mortality, teen pregnancy, and related problems as well as establishing and maintaining pregnancy and parenting education programs in secondary schools; and 6) infertility legislation on assisted reproductive technologies, including issues such as clarifying the status of children and adults born from donated eggs or preembryos, relinquishment of rights by the donors of eggs, sperms, or preembryos, allowable compensation for such donations, and the granting of legal status to fertilized ex utero embryos.

Sex education and sexual experience among adolescents.  

PubMed Central

This paper examines the association between sex education and adolescent sexual behavior. Data from the 1981 National Survey of Children show that 15- and 16-year-olds who have been exposed to sex education are less likely to be sexually experienced, and are neither more nor less likely to discuss sex with parents at home. Retrospective or longitudinal data are needed to more directly test the casual link between sex education and experience. PMID:4051074

Helping parents with sex education.  

PubMed

Health visitors, school nurses and other community nurses are sometimes asked for advice by parents and carers on the emerging sexuality of their children. Parents often lack knowledge about sexual development and are confused about whether to talk to their children about sex. They may have been brought up in a family where sex was not mentioned. They are worried that they do not have the skills or the knowledge to help their children. They do not know whether to leave it all to the school or not allow their children to have any information. All the evidence shows that children who have had their questions answered and who know about sex and relationships start sexual activity later, use contraception more reliably and are less likely to cause or have an unwanted pregnancy. Sex education should be part of the ordinary information and moral guidance that parents normally give and should start as early as possible. The type of advice to give to parents and carers is split into age ranges that they might find helpful. Examples of language and the level of information required are given. A list of resources for further guidance is included. PMID:21678785

The Colombian Ministry of Education has included in its secondary school programs 2 courses of sex education. The first course explores such subjects as prenatal and natal period, lactation, preschool children, behavior inside the family and in school. The 2nd. course is specifically directed to adolescents, investigating physical and emotional changes, eroticism, social pressure, and human relations. Moreover Colombia has had since 1955 special courses of 4-11 hours in sex education directed to young people engaged to be married, courses which have become obligatory in 1965 for those who desire a Catholic wedding. This article presents the findings and impressions of a sex education teacher who gave courses to adolescents of both sexes in a junior high school, and also premarital courses for a period of over 8 years. The author stresses the importance of such courses from an educational and a psychological point of view. PMID:752179

Effectiveness of sex education provided to adolescents.  

PubMed

A literature review was conducted to investigate the effects of sexuality and birth control education on knowledge and attitude with regard to contraception use by adolescents in Western countries. The findings showed that sex education increased knowledge about sexuality and birth control. In many cases there was also a change in attitude with adolescents assuming a more liberal and tolerant attitude towards sexuality. Virtually no educational programme showed any influence on communication skills, assertiveness or skills with regard to contraception use. The sex education courses appeared to have no impact on sexual behaviour, such as intercourse. A few studies demonstrated that adolescents' intention to use contraception in the future was strengthened. Most studies found the education provided had a positive effect on contraception use, especially those programmes which explicitly integrated the desired behaviour into the educational course. A number of factors are discussed that influence the effect of sex and birth control education. PMID:7971544

Sex education promotes safer behavior.  

PubMed

I started having sexual relations at 10 with a girl at the same school who was almost my age. We did not have anything to protect against pregnancy or diseases. I did not know about contraceptive methods then. I learned about these methods in a sex education program. It helped me control myself and show my school buddies what to do to avoid sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancies. After the training, I lost my shame about things that would have seemed forbidden before. I am no longer afraid to express myself about sexuality, a subject that was taboo during my childhood. I learned about family planning centers through the training too. At one clinic, it is easy to get condoms because the person who serves there is young and we can trust him. With older people, one is not so at ease asking for condoms. Before that, I got condoms at the pharmacy, but I did not get them myself. I asked someone who is a little older and could buy them without fear to get them. Someone as young as me is not well thought of in pharmacies, and one fears running into family members or friend of the family. A year ago when I used a condom, the girl thought I wanted to humiliate her. Another time, I had some condoms but I did not use them because I did not have enough courage to propose that. With another girl, I asked her the first day of her period to find out if she was fertile or not. That was a little difficult for me. Now that I have been in training, I found out that it is normal to use a condom and it is good to protect oneself against disease. I may be that I am the one who carries the disease. It's also good to protect against pregnancy, because I go out with girls my age. Now when I am with a girl, I propose using a condom, I try to convince her, and if she refuses, I don't have sex with her. So I'm no longer afraid of pregnancy or disease. PMID:12287151

Teens could get new message on waiting for sex. Sex education.  

PubMed

It's best to wait until you are older to have sex. But if you decide to have intercourse, use a condom. We'll show you how. That's the message most New Jersey teens get in their sex education classes. It's the law. But a new source of federal funding could help advocates of "abstinence-only" education find a way around that requirement. The state Department of Health and Senior Services is considering whether to apply for federal money limited to programs teaching teens that abstinence is the only certain way to prevent pregnancy and avoid contracting sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. The federally funded programs also would have to teach that sex before marriage is morally wrong. About $50 million for these abstinence-only programs was quietly tucked into the welfare bill that President Clinton signed into law in 1996. New Jersey is eligible to receive $843,000. The health department is hearing from people on both sides of the issue, said Celeste Wood, who plans to submit a report to Health Commissioner Len Fishman by the end of the month. Fishman will then decide whether New Jersey should apply for the money, she said. Historically, debate between "comprehensive" and "abstinence-only" sex education has centered around the classroom and education department. Comprehensive programs teach both abstinence and contraception. Abstinence-only programs prohibit discussion of contraception. Comprehensive education advocates have won that battle in New Jersey public schools. The state's core curriculum standards currently call for schools to teach teens about both abstinence and contraception. But the new federal money is being funneled through state health departments. "This skates around the schools by bringing the money in through the public health arena," said Daniel Daley, director of public policy for the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the US. "They are trying to influence community-based programs and make an end-run around the schools." Daley predicts the grants will spur growth of abstinence-until-marriage programs. PMID:12292328

The aims of this study were to explore adolescents' levels of knowledge on sexual health issues and their views on the sex education they receive as part of their compulsory education. Twenty students from two schools completed a short questionnaire and participated in a focus group discussion. The students had an excellent level of knowledge about sexual health issues, which contradicts Government views that ignorance is the key to adolescents' sexual health concerns (Social Exclusion Unit 1999). Participants felt their sex education was 'too little, too late' and that it should be taught by someone other than a teacher. Sex education should be introduced earlier in the curriculum as well as finding an acceptable 'teacher' if adolescent sexual health is to improve. PMID:17042303

Latino culture and sex education.  

PubMed

This article points out important facets of Latino culture to which family life educators must be sensitive. If a family life education program is to prove successful for any Latino community, it must be bilingual. Approximately 85% of all Latinos are Catholic. Latinos are not accustomed to extensive support from the world outside the family; the cultural pattern is to rely on support from the extended family. Latino parents are especially concerned that differing sexual mores, values, and customs will corrupt their children; they place high value on the ideal of cultural preservation. The macho concept of the exaggerated importance of being male is inculcated in a male child from a very early age. Girls are constantly reminded of their inferiority and weakness and usually praised for their docility, submissiveness, and attractiveness. Marianismo, the submissive and obedient female character, pervades the traditional role of wife bestowed upon the Latina. Male and female homosexuality is not looked on favorably in the Latino community. Latinos generally employ a certain degree of formality when dealing with outsiders, professionals, and community leaders. Fatalismo, or fatalism, is particularly to blame for Latinos' apparent deference to others and yielding to authorities. Once these basic cultural characteristics are understood, health care providers can pick up on the forces operating to modify this traditional outline, such as social class, education, socioeconomic status, country of orgin, religiosity, the changing role of women, and the impact of the media, as well as the potential benefical impact of family life education programs.

This lack of sex education partly explains the high incidence of teenage pregnancy at Paarl--once reported as the highest in the world. Eradication of this teenage catastrophe afflicting South Africa must involve improved school education and the total community, including the business sector. Teenage instruction should start at junior school and should be repeated at frequent intervals from as early as Standard 2. PMID:1887349

Sex education and young people.  

PubMed

Young people comprise up to 60% of Belize's total population of more than 200,000. Many of them have dropped out of school and simply loiter on the streets with little or nothing to do. The only nongovernmental organization in Belize providing family planning and sexual and reproductive health care services, the Belize Family Life Association (BFLA) is well aware of the many problems facing youth, such as AIDS, teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted disease, poverty, and gangs. In an effort to improve conditions for youth and to address their problems, the BFLA established a successful teen center in the Mesopotamia Area and the Belizean Youths with an Aim for Prosperity (BYAP), a project designed to foster and support entrepreneurship among a group comprised mainly of out-of-school at-risk youths. Population Concern is helping to fund reproductive health projects for youth in South Africa with the goal of reducing the prevalence of unwanted pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and unsafe abortion through reproductive health services and education. Young people are helping design the project by explaining their perceived needs to the project team. In Trinidad and Tobago, controversy followed the Family Planning Association of Trinidad and Tobago's (FPATT) recent launch of its annual Family Life Education Training program for teachers, while 2 recent hurricanes, unemployment, and illicit drug sales and use are some of the problems facing the Dominica Planned Parenthood Federation and Dominica's youth.

School sex education: an experimental programme with educational and medical benefit.  

PubMed Central

OBJECTIVES--To develop and teach a school sex education programme that will lead to a decrease in sexual activity. DESIGN--A matched internal and external control experiment, comparing control populations which received their own sex education programmes with populations which received a novel sex education intervention that included medical and peer led teaching. SETTING--Comprehensive secondary schools; control and intervention populations within Devon, and distant controls from rural, semiurban, and urban areas of England excluding major conurbations. SUBJECTS--Schoolchildren were taught from age 12 to 16; three successive cohorts of students were evaluated in school year 11 (mean age 16.0). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES--Questionnaire conducted under "examination conditions" and invigilated by the research team and other trained medical staff. RESULTS--In the intervention population, progressive increase in knowledge related to contraception, sexually transmitted diseases, and prevalence of sexual activity (chi 2 (trend) P < 0.001 for all three series); relative increase between intervention and control populations in knowledge, relative decrease in attitudes suggesting that sexual intercourse is of itself beneficial to teenagers and their relationships, relative decrease in sexual activity, and relative increase in approval of their "sex education" (relative risk > 1.00 with 95% confidence limits not including 1.00 for all series and for comparisons with both control populations); odds ratio (control v programme) for sexual activity of 1.45, controlling for sociodemographic variables. CONCLUSION--School sex education that includes specific targeted methods with the direct use of medical staff and peers can produce behavioural changes that lead to health benefit. PMID:7640585

Sex differences in intelligence. Implications for education.  

PubMed

Sex differences in intelligence is among the most politically volatile topics in contemporary psychology. Although no single finding has unanimous support, conclusions from multiple studies suggest that females, on average, score higher on tasks that require rapid access to and use of phonological and semantic information in long-term memory, production and comprehension of complex prose, fine motor skills, and perceptual speed. Males, on average, score higher on tasks that require transformations in visual-spatial working memory, motor skills involved in aiming, spatiotemporal responding, and fluid reasoning, especially in abstract mathematical and scientific domains. Males, however, are also over-represented in the low-ability end of several distributions, including mental retardation, attention disorders, dyslexia, stuttering, and delayed speech. A psychobiosocial model that is based on the inextricable links between the biological bases of intelligence and environmental events is proposed as an alternative to nature-nurture dichotomies. Societal implications and applications to teaching and learning are suggested. PMID:9329293

School administrators, parents, and sex education: a resolvable paradox?  

PubMed

The emergence of AIDS as an untreatable, lethal disease, responding to educational prevention strategies in high-risk populations, has brought the issues of sex education in the public schools to the forefront. However, administrators, teachers, and parents perceive different barriers to sex education implementation. This study, undertaken in a northeastern, multigenerational, ethnic city, characterized by adolescent pregnancy rates a third higher than the state overall, polled 42 junior and senior high school administrators regarding educational priorities, perceived barriers to expansion of sex education, and preferred methods of introducing sex education. Administrators perceive parents as a major barrier to the introduction of more formalized sex education in their schools. Paradoxically, these same administrators felt that parents were generally uncomfortable in talking to their children about human sexuality. Recommendations are offered from existing models of health education for resolution of administrators' conflicting views on parental roles. PMID:2801285

Does sex education affect adolescent sexual behaviors and health?  

PubMed

This study examines whether offering sex education to young teenagers affects several measures of adolescent sexual behavior and health: virginity status, contraceptive use, frequency of intercourse, likelihood of pregnancy, and probability of contracting a sexually transmitted disease. Using data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, I find that while sex education is associated with adverse health outcomes, there is little evidence of a causal link after controlling for unobserved heterogeneity via fixed effects and instrumental variables. These findings suggest that those on each side of the ideological debate over sex education are, in a sense, both correct and mistaken. Opponents are correct in observing that sex education is associated with adverse health outcomes, but are generally incorrect in interpreting this relationship causally. Proponents are generally correct in claiming that sex education does not encourage risky sexual activity, but are incorrect in asserting that investments in typical school-based sex education programs produce measurable health benefits.

The purpose of this study is to organize and testify the teaching of Sexual Education for Adolescents. Two groups of first level School adolescents were selected to be submitted to a diagnostic test; after being worked, they were submitted to a post-test about their knowledge of subject matter. It was concluded that the teenagers are very little informed about sexuality, although they are highly motivated and able to discuss and to receive information about the subject. The results of the research points to the necessity of a multidisciplinary approach, with the active participation of scholar nursing in its development. It is recommended that the Program of Sexual Education should also include some bio-psychosocial aspects and must be based on the diagnosis of students' needs. PMID:2130384

[Sex education for teenage girls seeking abortion].  

PubMed

Of 216 women under age 21 who were admitted for termination of pregnancy in the hospitals in Funen, 159 completed a questionnaire about their sexual experience and contraceptive habits (reply %=75.3%). The answers concerning sexual information were compared with the replies given in an interview investigation of a representative section of 16-20 year old women in which 281 (reply %=75.3%) answered the same question via the omnibus investigation from the Institute of Social Research. The 208 (74.0%) of these individuals who had had coitus constituted the reference group. Although the 2 groups were chosen and questioned in different ways, great agreement in replies was found. Patients seeking termination of pregnancy were thus not more dissatisfied with the sex education which they had received in school. No radical differences were found in the sources of information nor in how frequently the young people had talked to their parents about coitus. Nevertheless, the patients seeking pregnancy terminations considered their knowledge about contraception to be poorer than that of the reference group. Advice appears to be necessary in connection with pregnancy termination. In conclusion, it must be emphasized that no marked differences were found in the sex education which these young women received. Other factors must be investigated in order to explain the unwanted pregnancies. (author's modified) PMID:3354114

Programme guidelines. How effective are sex education programmes? Findings.  

PubMed

Adolescent reproductive health program promotion in Asia and Oceania has been hindered by a lack of appreciation on the part of parents, educators, policy makers, and development planners of the benefits of sex education. Concerns persist that sex education encourages adolescent promiscuity. However, a World Health Organization review of 1050 studies on sex education failed to provide any support for this position. In fact, the research shows that sex education can actually help to delay first intercourse among teens who are not already sexually active and promotes consistent contraceptive use among those who are sexually active. A comprehensive literature review commissioned by the US Agency for International Development as well as a US Centers for Disease Control study corroborated this finding. Cross-national comparisons have indicated adolescent pregnancy rates are lower in countries with liberal policies in terms of sex education programs and the provision of adolescent sexual health services.

What is talked about when parents discuss sex with children: family based sex education in Windhoek, Namibia.  

PubMed

Among limits to school based sex education in Namibia are teachers that sexually harass children, unqualified Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) teachers and lack of teaching materials. Moreover out of school youths cannot access school based SRH education. Given these shortcomings, and in the context of HIV/AIDS, promoting parental-child communication about sex is an important measure to prevent HIV infections in Namibia. Parents are important because they support the emotional and physical development of children and greater parent-adolescent communication delays sexual initiation and reduces the number of sexual partners. The rationale for the paper is that there is need to know more about what parents and children discuss if the development of more effective communication about sexual issues between parents and their children as a tool for fighting HIV/AIDS is to be accomplished. Using qualitative data from Windhoek this study explored parents' communication with their children about sex. Findings indicate such discussions are traditionally seen as a taboo but nowadays they do take place (especially with mothers) around menstruation, pregnancy and HIV/AIDS. There is resistance to more specific discussions around sexual intercourse and relationships. We conclude that there is a need for parents to be taught how to educate their children on sex.

[Sex education in practice and science in Germany].  

PubMed

Sex education in Germany has a history full of conflict and ideological change between emancipatory, reforming, and repressive tendencies. As a science, sex education has only recently gained independence from its mother disciplines theology, medicine, psychology, and sociology and at the same time has taken a critically constructive position towards sexual science. Its topics range from dissemination of knowledge about biological processes and contraception to relationship concerns, sexual orientation, gender issues, sexual transgression, moral, and ethical questions. Sexual socialization happens nearly everywhere. Sexual education takes place mainly in families, elementary education, and school, but increasingly also in all other areas of education, social work, and health service. Its clientèle are no longer exclusively children and adolescents but increasingly adults of every age group. Subjects such as AIDS, sexual abuse, and teenage pregnancy have contributed to governmental funding of projects and training in sex education. Thus, sex education still reaches from mere protection from dangers to fostering or maintaining psychological health. PMID:17177101

Forty-six subjects were assessed on their level of sexual knowledge in seven areas: parts of the body, masturbation, male puberty, female puberty, intercourse, pregnancy and childbirth, and birth control and venereal disease. They were retested after a 9-month sex education programme and tested again at a 3-month follow-up. A control group of 14 subjects were tested on two occasions, 4 months apart. There were significant and substantial increases in sexual knowledge on all areas for the experimental group. The control group showed no corresponding increases in knowledge. PMID:1477490

Sex education attitudes and outcomes among North American women.  

PubMed

Attitudes and outcomes of sex education received by North American women are examined via an Internet survey (N = 1,400). Mean age was 19.5, with 24% reporting one or more unplanned pregnancies. Women were more satisfied with sex education from informal sources than from parents, schools, and physicians. Those receiving sex education from parents or schools reported fewer pregnancies and abortions. In school, women receiving a combination of contraceptive and abstinence education and those receiving primarily abstinence education were least likely to experience unplanned pregnancy. Religious identification was significantly related to unplanned pregnancy and type of sex education received from parents. These factors seem to play a significant role in reducing unplanned pregnancy and abortion. PMID:16689438

Sex education in the eyes of primary school teachers in Novo Hamburgo, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.  

PubMed

Sex education has been included in the National Curriculum of the Brazilian Ministry of Education since 1996 as a cross-cutting theme that should be linked to the contents of each school subject in primary and high schools. This paper presents a study of the implementation of this policy in the primary schools of Novo Hamburgo, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, based on interviews between January 2011 and April 2012 with 82 teachers working in those schools. We found that sex education was not being taught as a cross-cutting theme in any of the schools, and that any lessons were mostly dominated by a biomedical discourse focusing primarily on the reproductive organs, fertility, pregnancy, and contraception. Sexual health and relationships and non-heterosexual sex and relationships were being neglected. Sex education was also considered a possible means of correcting or controlling sexual identities and behaviours deemed abnormal or immoral. We recommend far more discussion of how to implement the National Curriculum recommendations. We call for education courses to provide theoretical and methodological training on sex education for teachers, and recommend that the boards of educational institutions take up sex education as a priority subject. Lastly, we suggest that each school studies local sexuality-related problems and based on the findings, each teacher presents a pedagogical proposal of how to integrate sex education into the subjects they teach.

"Mr. Health" programme on sex education for the adolescents.  

PubMed

30 years ago, late Premier Zhou Enlai pointed out: "Adolescents must be informed about sex knowledge." But unfortunately, for many years, authorities were too timid to popularize sex education among adolescents. According to a survey, only 37.6% of sex education was provided through formal ways. Another survey of 2071 sex offenders showed that 89.3% of them were teenagers. Besides, the cases of early romance increased dramatically in recent years. According to a survey in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu, half of the high school students have had love affairs. Many of the adolescents have a hazy understanding of sex. Lacking contraceptive knowledge and measures, girls are likely to get pregnant, which make them feel so uneasy that some even committed suicide. Facing the above situation, "Mr. Health" Program on Sex Education for the Adolescents is underway. The program will comprise various activities. A column of "Mailbox of Mr. Health" is to be developed in the Science and Technology of Chinese Youth, a journal with national influence. Specialists will introduce the systematic knowledge of and proper attitudes toward sex in that column. Special educational radio programs are to be produced in the China Central Broadcasting Station to popularize the "Mr. Health" Program on Sex Education for the Adolescents. A hotline of counseling on sex knowledge is to be set by the Service Center of the Adolescents under the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League. And a large-scale exhibition of the "Mr. Health" Program on Popularizing Sex Education will be held throughout the country. PMID:12318430

The bumpy road to socialise nature: sex education in Japan.

This study was prompted by an empirical puzzle: why is sex education in schools so underdeveloped in Japan compared to many other industrialised societies? On the one hand, formal pedagogy under state policy is conservative, emphasising reproductive and prophylactic purposes rather than a comprehensive understanding of sexuality. On the other hand, however, Japan has a highly visible sexual environment where a variety of commercial sex activities are tolerated and even encouraged. The aim of the paper is to provide an integrated picture of these apparently contradictory trends by examining the nexus of political, economic and sociocultural factors that affect sex education in contemporary Japan.

Rural sex education: assessment of programs and interagency collaboration.  

PubMed

The purposes of this study were to assess the sex education programs offered in three rural Ohio counties, the agencies involved, and the extent to which agencies collaborated, and to compare interagency collaboration across counties. This cross-sectional study occurred in two phases. Using key-informant interviews (n = 85), Phase 1 identified current programs. Phase 2 assessed interagency collaboration via a mailed survey (n = 116). Results indicated that there were five to nine sex education programs per county, each involving five to eight agencies. Sex education was offered inside and outside of schools; programs were available to keep pregnant/parenting youth in school, enhance self-esteem, provide parenting education to teens, and advocate for abstinence. Sex education also occurred via a newsletter and an adolescent health conference, and in various clinics. Minimal collaboration was noted among agencies providing these programs. Public health nurses are ideally situated to identify current programs and agencies involved and form an interagency group to plan and implement comprehensive, collaborative sex education programs for youth. Further research is needed to longitudinally assess the impact of such program development on interagency collaboration, teen sexual activity, and pregnancy rates. PMID:9111807

Substance misuse teaching in undergraduate medical education  

PubMed Central

Background Over 12,000 hospital admissions in the UK result from substance misuse, therefore issues surrounding this need to be addressed early on in a doctor’s training to facilitate their interaction with this client group. Currently, undergraduate medical education includes teaching substance misuse issues, yet how this is formally integrated into the curriculum remains unclear. Methods Semi-structured interviews with 17 key members of staff responsible for the whole or part of the undergraduate medical curriculum were conducted to identify the methods used to teach substance misuse. Using a previously devised toolkit, 19 curriculum co-ordinators then mapped the actual teaching sessions that addressed substance misuse learning objectives. Results Substance misuse teaching was delivered primarily in psychiatry modules but learning objectives were also found in other areas such as primary care placements and problem-based learning. On average, 53 teaching sessions per medical school focused on bio-psycho-social models of addiction whereas only 23 sessions per medical school focused on professionalism, fitness to practice and students’ own health in relation to substance misuse. Many sessions addressed specific learning objectives relating to the clinical features of substance dependence whereas few focused on iatrogenic addiction. Conclusions Substance misuse teaching is now inter-disciplinary and the frequent focus on clinical, psychological and social effects of substance misuse emphasises the bio-psycho-social approach underlying clinical practice. Some areas however are not frequently taught in the formal curriculum and these need to be addressed in future changes to medical education. PMID:24533849

Sex education in the Cameroon. Reaching schoolchildren.  

PubMed

Four methods were used to learn about the sexual behavior, knowledge and use of contraception, and sexually transmitted diseases (STD) among 230 students aged 11-16 years in two bilingual schools in Yaounde. First, students discussed letters to an aunt explaining a teen's sexually-related problem. Premarital sex and the fear of STDs were at issue. Second, students filled in missing information on a line drawing relating to pregnancy. Most participants knew that a baby depends upon its mother for development and growth, but some were unclear on the nature of the biological connection to the uterus. Third, students completed a questionnaire upon which they indicated their agreement or lack thereof with statements on aspects of sex behavior. While both sexes indicated that love is more important than sex, they also find it necessary to have sex before marriage in order to gain experience and to know the other person better. Finally, students completed an anonymous questionnaire which produced the following results: 24% had experienced sexual intercourse; the most common age for initiating sexual activity was 15 and 13 years for boys and girls, respectively; 48% had heard about contraceptives; and 27% believed that contraceptives were dangerous and could permanently end one's fertility. Despite these students' limited amount of accurate knowledge about sexual matters, they are ready to confront real-life sexual situations. 130 parents, 110 teachers, and 26 health workers involved in clinics for family planning and STDs were also interviewed in the study. Contrary to the view of adults that adolescents should not discuss sexual matters, the youths initiated important discussions about their sexuality. 90% were interested in knowing about safer sex and STDs. Most parents believe that their children become sexually active later in life than they really do, with both parents and teachers supporting the withholding of information on birth control from adolescents out of fear that such knowledge will encourage them to experiment with sex. Young people instead need free and open access to family planning information and services to help them avoid unwanted pregnancy and infections with STDs. Moreover, the government campaign against HIV must start emphasizing condom use. PMID:12315650

Teaching Chemistry via Distance Education  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper describes a chemistry course taught at Indiana University Purdue University, Indianapolis via television, with a Web version added later. The television format is a delivery technology; the Web is an engagement technology and is preferred since it requires student participation. The distance-laboratory component presented the greatest challenge since laboratories via distance education are not a part of the U.S. academic culture. Appropriate experiments have been developed with the consultation of experts from The Open University in the United Kingdom, Athabasca University in Canada, and Monash University in Australia. The criteria used in the development of experiments are: (1) they must be credible academic experiences equal to or better than those used on campus, (2) they must be easy to perform without supervision, (3) they must be safe, and (4) they must meet all legal requirements. An evaluation of the program using three different approaches is described. The paper concludes that technology-mediated distance education students do as well as on-campus students, but drop out at a higher rate. It is very important to communicate with students frequently, and technology tools ought to be used only if good pedagogy is enhanced by their use.

Sex education and sexual behaviour of adolescents in Japan.  

PubMed

In Japan sex education has been introduced into the general curriculum of primary schools since 1992. But due to the lack of cooperation between schools and health organisations, it cannot always be said that an effective and proper sex education has been given to students. According to the nationwide survey of the Japan Association on Sex Education on the sexual behaviour of students, the rate of students having had sexual experiences has risen for both boys and girls. As a result of the remarkable increase of teenage induced abortions since 1975, the Japan Family Planning Association started a programme for adolescent health issues in 1980, and the Ministry of Health and Welfare set up a project in 1981, which included counseling for adolescents over telephone or in person. In 1991 another project, called the "Infant Association Learning Experience" was initiated as well as peer education by trained nurse students with collaboration between educational and health organisations in order to promote sex education; this had the close cooperation of families, schools and health organisations in the community.

Sex education is key to combatting AIDS in Brazil.  

PubMed

About 60,000 children in Brazil were born from an AIDS-affected mother, and 16,000 were orphaned by AIDS. These stark figures were released by the Global Orphan Project and the Instituto Promundo at the EducAids conference. About 90% of childhood AIDS cases were a result of perinatal exposure, and the other 10% from unknown exposure. In response to these prevalences, the EducAids initiative, which aims to promote AIDS education in schools, was considering sex education for preschool children. The coordinator of the government's AIDS prevention program, Pedro Chequer, believes sex education for children as young as 4 years old would reduce AIDS among teenagers and help avoid unwanted pregnancies. The Minister of Health supported this concept. Jose Serra, the Minister of Health declared that it was not the aim of the ministry to avoid teenage pregnancy but to prevent early sexual intercourse. In 1997 the number of deliveries by girls aged 15-19 years had risen to 25.27%, from 21.41% in 1993. However, the number of deliveries for women over age 20 are falling. Pedro Chequer, EducAids coordinator, stated that despite these facts, campaigns for sex education would be opposed by the Roman Catholic Church. PMID:10392998

There is a remarkable ignorance about sexuality among Chilean teenagers, as underscored by the paper by Fernández et al, published in this issue. The authors analyze the biological, psychological and social consequences of the lack of parental and school sexual education. Among them, there is an increasing incidence of unwanted pregnancies, abortions and sexually transmitted diseases in teenagers. Child abuse, neglect, battering, mortality and maternal deprivation are more frequent among the offspring of teenage parents. School desertion caused by unwanted pregnancies will seriously jeopardize the education and training of these teenagers, perpetuating the cycle of poverty. PMID:11016054

School-based sex education in Western Nepal: uncomfortable for both teachers and students.  

PubMed

The National Adolescent Health and Development Strategy (2000) of Nepal considers adolescents a key target group for information and services. The extent to which sex education is being provided in schools has received little attention, however. At higher secondary level, students are supposed to be taught basic sex education using a chapter in a textbook called Health, Population and Environment. Little is known about how or how well this material is covered. In a study in 2002 among adolescents in eight schools in the Nawalparasi District in the Western Region of Nepal, we interviewed eight teachers responsible for teaching this subject. We also collected survey data from 451 students and held four focus group discussions with 26 of them. We found that adolescents in these schools did not appear to be getting the information they needed. Most of the teachers did not want to deal with sensitive topics and feared censure by their colleagues and society. Some lacked the skills to give such instruction. Many students also felt uncomfortable with the topics. The challenge is to strengthen sex education, make it more appropriate for the students and ensure that teachers are more comfortable and able to give instruction on the topic. PMID:17101434

Moi scuppers sex-education plans in Kenya.  

PubMed

President Daniel arap Moi and the ruling party of Kenya, KANU (Kenyan African National Union), have bowed to election year pressure from anti-abortion groups and Catholic bishops, including Bishop Alfred Rotich who led a anti-sex education demonstration in Nairobi, and shelved a sessional paper on family life education that was to be discussed by parliament this month. If the paper had been adopted, sex education could have been introduced in the schools and integrated with primary health care. The document would have been the basis for making students aware of the dangers of adolescent pregnancy, abortion, drug abuse, HIV/AIDS, and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). 12% of the girls who leave school are pregnant or have married early; 10,000 girls become pregnant per year according to Ministry of Education estimates. The local AIDS council believes that the pandemic is on the rise among Kenyan youth; it is estimated that 1-3 million persons will become infected by the year 2000 and that Kenya will have more than a million AIDS orphans. Real intervention would be to create awareness and provide family planning services, according to the council. Bishop John Njue, Chairman of the Kenya Episcopal Conference, states that the Catholic Church will fight any introduction of sex education in the schools. PMID:9343512

The role of sex education in adolescent pregnancy.  

PubMed

The aim of the present Review is to throw some light on the sexual education of young people in the hope that it would provide a panacea for adolescent pregnancy. The source of knowledge, family or school, is not the issue, but information presumably will foster an enlightened mind and perhaps even enlightened behaviour. The availability, or lack of availability, of sex education, contraception and abortion services appears worthy of special consideration. It is often assumed that adolescents, and especially low socio-economic adolescents, begin their pregnancies at young ages because of indifference, or cultural pattern. Too little attention has been paid to the provision of adequate sex education and birth control services, especially in developing countries. PMID:2005601

Sex education is the need of the hour.

An editorial in the IJME on sexual assault and the ethical responsibility of health professionals in this context draws our attention to the need to understand and provide solutions to the problem of aberrant sexual behaviours in our society. News items about the prevalence of sexual abuse of children by priests in church and such like, and the risk faced by children in such unexpected venues of sexual exploitation point to the need for education. Yet, there is no consensus regarding the inclusion of sex education in school curricula or the method of providing unambiguous sex education, particularly to adolescents. Incidents of the sort mentioned above call into question certain values, such as celibacy, and it appears that any moral principle which goes against human nature fails. PMID:25377044

Sex and Breastfeeding: An Educational Perspective  

PubMed Central

Expectant and new parents have many concerns regarding the relationship between sexuality and breastfeeding. How is a new mother's libido affected by breastfeeding? Why do some women get sexually excited when breastfeeding? Is this frequent or normal? How does the partner feel about breasts full of milk? Why do breasts leak during a woman's orgasm? Perinatal educators are in a privileged position to reassure these parents about this relationship while promoting the breastfeeding bond between the mother and child and the intimacy bond between the parents.

Pass or fail. The political course of sex education.  

PubMed

Although decisions regarding public school curricula have traditionally been made at the city and state level, the Clinton Administration is seeking a broader role for the US federal government in sex education. This trend is consistent with the Administration's concern about the increasing number of adolescent pregnancies and the unchecked spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Since the Reagan Administration's enactment of the Adolescent Family Life Act, Federal funds have been available for school-based sex education programs; however, the Act specifies that such programs discuss only abstinence as a strategy for avoiding unwanted teen pregnancy. Clinton's attempts to eliminate funding for Family Life Act abstinence-only programs and replace them with comprehensive programs that promote a range of contraception options have, to date, been defeated by right-wing opponents.

Logistic regression showed that the effect of sex education on unintended pregnancy works through the use of contraception. Other significant effects were found for variables reflecting socioeconomic status and a woman's acceptance of her sexuality. The results also suggested that labelling affects measurement of 'unintended' pregnancy. PMID:7983095

Phytoremediation in education: textile dye teaching experiments.  

PubMed

Phytoremediation, the use of plants to clean up contaminated soil and water, has a wide range of applications and advantages, and can be extended to scientific education. Phytoremediation of textile dyes can be used as a scientific experiment or demonstration in teaching laboratories of middle school, high school and college students. In the experiments that we developed, students were involved in a hands-on activity where they were able to learn about phytoremediation concepts. Experiments were set up with 20-40 mg L(-1) dye solutions of different colors. Students can be involved in the set up process and may be involved in the experimental design. In its simplest forms, they use two-week-old sunflower seedlings and place them into a test tube of known volume of dye solution. Color change and/or dye disappearance can be monitored by visual comparison or with a spectrophotometer. Intensity and extent of the lab work depends on student's educational level, and time constraints. Among the many dyes tested, Evan's Blue proved to be the most readily decolorized azo dye. Results could be observed within 1-2 hours. From our experience, dye phytoremediation experiments are suitable and easy to understand by both college and middle school students. These experiments help visual learners, as students compare the color of the dye solution before and after the plant application. In general, simple phytoremediation experiments of this kind can be introduced in many classes including biology, biochemistry and ecological engineering. This paper presents success stories of teaching phytoremediation to middle school and college students. PMID:19810348

Sex Education in the Schools-- The Doctor's Role

Physicians may be asked to act as consultants in the development of sex education programs in the schools or to contribute as professional experts. As most medical libraries contain very little material on this subject, the doctor must turn to public libraries, which have books ranging from useless to excellent. These must be examined critically. In his role of healer, the doctor may minimize his roles of teacher and community model, and thereby lose many opportunities to communicate with members of other professions and thus extend health education beyond the limits of his practice.

Investigating stakeholders' perceptions of the link between high STD rates and the current Baltimore City Public Schools' sex education curriculum  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The purpose of this exploratory study was to examine key stakeholders' perceptions of the current Baltimore City Public Schools' (BCPS) sex education curriculum and to gain insight into how they believe the curriculum could be modified to be more effective. A mixed methods approach using qualitative and quantitative data collection consisting of a survey, focus group interview, and individual interviews was conducted to gather information on stakeholders' perceptions. The stakeholders included: (1) former students who received their sex education courses in the Baltimore City Public School system (BCPS); (2) teachers in BCPS who were affiliated with the sex education curriculum; (3) health care professionals who screened and/or treated East Baltimore City residents for a sexually transmitted disease (STD) and; (4) one policy maker who was responsible for creating sex education curriculum at the national level. Analysis of the quantitative data from former Baltimore City Public School students revealed a general satisfaction with the current sex education curriculum. However, qualitative data from the same group of stakeholders revealed several changes they thought should be implemented into the program in an effort to improve the current curriculum. Findings from the other groups after qualitative analysis of the interviews suggest three major themes in support of curriculum change: (1) a blended curriculum that integrates both the cognitive and affective learning domains; (2) knowledge of prevention of STD's and pregnancy; and (3) authentic teaching and learning. Results from this study strongly suggest that the Baltimore City Public School system is apathetic to the sexual health needs of students and, therefore, is inadvertently contributing to the high rate of sexually transmitted diseases among young people.

Family life and human development (sex education): the Prince George's County Public Schools experience.  

PubMed

The Family Life and Human Development (Sex Education) program is now fully implemented in 99.5% of Prince George's County Public Schools. The program is credited with better than 98% parental acceptance and student participation. The administrative guidelines and program supervision are crucial to the program's success. The program was developed to be in compliance with the Maryland State Board of Education Bylaw 13.03.03.01 that requires that sex education be offered. Prior to program implementation, the guidelines were written, parents were involved, and teachers and administrators were trained. All instruction is organized around 3 areas of focus: interpersonal relationships; physiological and personality changes of puberty; and advanced physiology and psychology of human sexual behavior. The major limitation of the program is that in grades 9-12 when such subjects as contraception, abortion, homosexuality and premarital intercourse can be discussed, only a small percentage of the student population are able to enroll each year. The reason for the low percentage include lack of funds to hire additional teachers, limited time due to 1/2 day work/study teachers, and the elective classification of the program. Before a teacher is permitted to teach any aspect of the program that deals with the reproductive system or any potentially sensitive area of sexuality, he/she must 1st meet certain established criteria.

AIDS and sex education for young people in China.  

PubMed

Although China has had a rich sexual culture for thousands of years, Chinese people are usually unwilling to openly discuss issues of sex. Some parents are quite ignorant of the change in their children's sexual attitude and behaviour. In China today, adolescents are becoming much more sexually liberated. Premarital sex and unplanned pregnancies among teenagers are increasing. Sexually transmitted diseases (STD) including HIV/AIDS are also spreading rapidly. However, young people lack basic information on AIDS/STD and do not know how to protect themselves from these diseases or how to avoid unintended pregnancies. Several major youth peer education programmes in China are mentioned in this paper. Among them, a four-year programme entitled the Australian-Chinese AIDS/STD/Safer Sex Peer Education Programme for Youth, is discussed in some detail. The programme has so far reached over 40000 university and school students. Evaluation results show that the programme is effective in both significantly increasing students' knowledge about AIDS/STDs and changing their attitude towards AIDS patients. In addition, the programme is highly praised by the students. PMID:11999327

Netherlands: study of teenagers gives pointers for better sex education.  

PubMed

Even though the Dutch have the lowest teenage pregnancy rate, an effort has been made to better understand contraceptive and abortion behavior. For 15-19 year olds, the Netherlands pregnancy rate was 14/1000 girls in 1980-81 compared with 35 in Sweden, 43 in France, 44 in Canada, 45 in England, and 96 in the US. The reasons given for the low rate were 1) easily accessible contraceptives through health practitioners or the 36 family planning clinics; 2) open, tolerant attitudes to sexuality; and 3) high quality sex education in or out of school. A 3-year study was begun in 1986 comparing sexual life styles and interaction skills of clinical contraceptive clients and abortion clients. Other participants were drawn from the general teen population. Findings were that 70% of both sexes used contraceptives at 1st intercourse (40% condoms, 20% the pill, 10% both). At the most recent intercourse, 85% used the pill and/or condoms. But 25% used no contraceptive at 1st intercourse or an ineffective method such as withdrawal. Of recent users, only 50% always used protection, and 1 in 10 made love more than 5 times without protection. Abortion clients, ineffective contraceptors, took more risks as a rule. 3 reasons account for this: 1) good contraceptors used contraceptives to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Ineffective ones identified contraception as a symbol of sexual readiness. 2) Good contraceptors were better communicators, while ineffective ones left the decision to the other partner. 3) Good contraceptors learned how to control and manipulate the situation, while abortion clients exercised no control. The importance for sex education is that it should include information as well as developing skills in responsible behavior. Understanding and accepting without disapproval the teen viewpoint and experience is very important. Peers need to learn how to negotiate and not take a passive role. Unwanted pregnancy, AIDS, and STDs should be included in the focus on sexuality. PMID:12222220

Views on sex and sex education among gang-involved Latino youth in the United States.  

PubMed

Although gang-involved Latino youth in the United States are uniquely at risk of adverse consequences from sexual behavior, little research is available that can guide those who wish to develop interventions to reduce sexual risk among these youth. To facilitate the development of effective interventions, we identified cultural and contextual factors that influence sexual behavior and sex education among gang-involved Latino youth in one U.S. community. By analyzing transcripts from interviews and focus groups with three different groups of key stakeholders--gang-experienced Latino youth, the parents of gang-experienced Latino youth, and the personnel of a program providing comprehensive human services for gang-involved Latino youth--we identified three domains to be considered in developing sexual risk-reduction interventions for gang-involved U.S. Latino youth. The focus of our discussion is on the implications of these findings for future development or adaptation of interventions. PMID:24705683

Should sex education be made a part of the school curriculum?  

PubMed

Adolescents need sex education because every day throughout the world they face problems that have to do with their families, their friends, and sex. If parents are unable to give their children advice about sex, teenagers may use the sexual experience as a way of expressing their rebellion. Incorporating sex education into schools in the Philippines would help adolescents engaging in sexual intercourse understand the risk they are taking of contracting HIV/AIDS or a sexually transmitted disease. It is dangerous for parents to believe that ignorance will protect their children because if a child knows nothing about sex he or she will be unable to decide what behavior is appropriate. A lack of education is also responsible for adolescent pregnancy, and none of the solutions to this situation is optimal. It is essential to incorporate sex education into the curriculum and to have it presented by an honest, open-minded teacher. PMID:12294581

Teaching the teachers: Making solar science education fun and easy to teach  

SciTech Connect

America is facing a quiet crisis in the scientific and technology fields. Elementary school teachers are required to teach outside their specialty area using outdated materials. Furthering this crisis, teachers don`t have time to search for their own materials. These teachers need affordable instructional materials that are fun and easy to teach. Recognizing the importance of teaching science and technology in the classroom, the Arizona Department of Commerce Energy Office developed a Solar Energy Education Packet for Teachers. Also, an implementation workshop was developed to instruct teachers on how to use the materials in the packet. In this paper, the author demonstrates the overwhelming acceptability of using solar cooking for teaching solar science principles and technology in the classroom. By taking a fun and inexpensive approach to teaching the solar science principles, they have created a program that has been embraced not only by teachers, but by students as well.

BDSM Disclosure and Stigma Management: Identifying Opportunities for Sex Education  

PubMed Central

While participation in the activities like bondage, domination, submission/sadism, masochism that fall under the umbrella term BDSM is widespread, stigma surrounding BDSM poses risks to practitioners who wish to disclose their interest. We examined risk factors involved with disclosure to posit how sex education might diffuse stigma and warn of risks. Semi-structured interviews asked 20 adults reporting an interest in BDSM about their disclosure experiences. Most respondents reported their BDSM interests starting before age 15, sometimes creating a phase of anxiety and shame in the absence of reassuring information. As adults, respondents often considered BDSM central to their sexuality, thus disclosure was integral to dating. Disclosure decisions in nondating situations were often complex considerations balancing desire for appropriateness with a desire for connection and honesty. Some respondents wondered whether their interests being found out would jeopardize their jobs. Experiences with stigma varied widely. PMID:22754406

The author suggests that Christian sex educators should be alert to the construction and commodification of desire and its attendant capitalist implications. While resisting this grand narrative they should encourage the young to embrace their own human\\/divine

Measuring Effectiveness in School Sex Education--Methodological Dilemmas in Researching an Intervention Involving Young Mothers  

ERIC Educational Resources Information Center

Defining and therefore evaluating the effectiveness of school sex education is problematic because of its location at the site of struggle between competing discourses. Those discourses--summarised here as "moralistic," "harm reductionist" and "empowering"--each emphasise a different conceptualisation of sex education's intended outcomes. The…

Pearls of wisdom for clinical teaching: expert educators reflect.  

PubMed

A group of expert educators, each with more than 20 years of experience in midwifery education, was asked to contribute a "pearl (or pearls) of wisdom" for clinical teaching. Despite minimal instructions regarding what type of wisdom was being solicited, remarkable similarities emerged from the educators' contributions. Themes included the need for self-evaluation to become a competent preceptor, the role-modeling function of the preceptor, the development of critical thinking in students, the need to appreciate students' varying learning styles and individual ways of functioning, and the use of positive reinforcement. Although these may seem like universally accepted concepts in clinical teaching, one contributor related stories she heard from students about "hazing" behaviors that have a negative impact on learning. This points to the need for ongoing education about being an educator, another theme echoed in several of the contributions. PMID:14660952

Factors inhibiting educated mothers in Kenya from giving meaningful sex-education to their daughters.  

PubMed

Public health studies advocate the education of women, especially mothers, stating that educated mothers are highly likely to pass on their education to their children, as well as enforce in their homes healthy practices thereby protecting entire families from disease. Whereas this is usually true in regard to most infectious diseases such as influenza, it is not usually the case when it comes to sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as HIV/AIDS. The research is based on a survey focus group discussion with high-school students (aged 17-19) and interviews with 10 high-school teachers in 1996. In 2003, data were collected from a focus group with fourth-form students and interviews with 4 teachers and 15 mothers whose daughters were in high school. The findings indicate that most educated mothers in urban Kenya experience socio-cultural and religious inhibitions which hinder them from providing meaningful sex-education to their pre-adolescent and adolescent daughters. This paper discusses these inhibitions and the steps educated mothers take to ensure that their daughters receive some form of sex-education. PMID:17258368

[The application of creative thinking teaching in nursing education].  

PubMed

Nursing education is increasingly expected to cultivate nursing student creative abilities in line with general Ministry of Education promotion of greater creativity within education and the greater leeway for creativity won domestically for nurses by professional nursing organizations. Creative thinking has been named by education experts in the United States as the third most important goal of nursing education. However, nursing students in Taiwan have been shown to test lower in terms of creativity than students enrolled in business management. Leaders in nursing education should consider methods by which to improve the creative thinking capabilities of nursing students. Articles in the literature indicate that courses in creative studies are concentrated in the field of education, with few designed specifically for nursing. The teaching of constructing creative thinking is particularly weak in the nursing field. The purpose of this article was to review literature on education and nursing in order to explore current definitions, teaching strategies, and evaluation approaches related to creativity, and to develop a foundation for teaching creativity in nursing. The authors hope that an appropriate creative thinking course for nursing students may be constructed by referencing guidance provided in this in order to further cultivate creative thinking abilities in nursing students that will facilitate their application of creative thinking in their future clinical practicum.

Medical education and informal teaching by nurses and midwives  

PubMed Central

Objectives The aim of this study was to examine the contribution of nurses and midwives to the education of medical colleagues in the clinical context. Methods The research design was a cross-sectional survey using an online questionnaire. A subsample of 2906 respondents, from a total of 4763 nurses and midwives participating in a web-based study, had taught doctors in the 12 months prior to the survey. The questionnaire generated mainly categorical data analysed with descriptive statistics. Results In the group of respondents who taught doctors (n =2906), most provided informal teaching (92.9%, n=2677). Nearly a quarter (23.9%, n=695) self-rated the amount of time spent teaching as at least moderate in duration. The most common named teaching topics were documentation (74.8%, n=2005) and implementing unit procedures (74.3, n=1987), followed by medication charting (61.9%, n=1657) and choosing correct medications (55.8%, n=1493). Respondents felt their contributions were unrecognised by the doctors and students they taught (43.9%, n=1256). Conclusions Educational contributions while unrecognised could be considered positively by the respondents. However, discussion of teaching responsibilities is necessary to support the development of teaching protocols and supervision responsibilities as respondents reported teaching clinical medical tasks related to medications, consent and other skills within the medical domain. Study limitations include the nature of self-reported responses which cannot be validated and data drawn from a survey concluded in 2009. PMID:25341227

Developing medical educators - a mixed method evaluation of a teaching education program  

PubMed Central

Background It is well accepted that medical faculty teaching staff require an understanding of educational theory and pedagogical methods for effective medical teaching. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a 5-day teaching education program. Methods An open prospective interventional study using quantitative and qualitative instruments was performed, covering all four levels of the Kirkpatrick model: Evaluation of 1) ‘Reaction’ on a professional and emotional level using standardized questionnaires; 2) ‘Learning’ applying a multiple choice test; 3) ‘Behavior’ by self-, peer-, and expert assessment of teaching sessions with semistructured interviews; and 4) ‘Results’ from student evaluations. Results Our data indicate the success of the educational intervention at all observed levels. 1) Reaction: The participants showed a high acceptance of the instructional content. 2) Learning: There was a significant increase in knowledge (P<0.001) as deduced from a pre-post multiple-choice questionnaire, which was retained at 6 months (P<0.001). 3) Behavior: Peer-, self-, and expert-assessment indicated a transfer of learning into teaching performance. Semistructured interviews reflected a higher level of professionalism in medical teaching by the participants. 4) Results: Teaching performance ratings improved in students’ evaluations. Conclusions Our results demonstrate the success of a 5-day education program in embedding knowledge and skills to improve performance of medical educators. This multimethodological approach, using both qualitative and quantitative measures, may serve as a model to evaluate effectiveness of comparable interventions in other settings. PMID:24679671

[Evaluation of sex education and contraception instruction at the contraception clinic in Odense].  

PubMed

The aim of the study was to evaluate 1 1/2 hours of lessons on contraception given to 9. and 10. grade students at the Contraception Clinic in Odense, Denmark. The lessons are a supplement to the traditional sexual education given at the school. The study included 148 pupils in the period from August 1991 to January 1992. The median age was 15 years for both girls and boys. The pupils answered two identical questionnaires; one just before the lessons were given and the other ten to 13 weeks after the visit to the clinic. The article presents the answers given about male and female sexual function, knowledge/own choice of contraception, pregnancy, abortion and HIV. The extra lessons improved the knowledge among the pupils, but there were still some boys with inadequate knowledge. The article gives suggestions for improving the teaching of contraception, such as having both male and female teachers. This would also emphasize that both sexes have a common responsibility. If the pupils answer a simple questionnaire before the lessons, it is possible to goal-direct the education to individual requirements. The pupils are introduced to the Contraception Clinic, where they easily can seek advice in the future. PMID:8644395

Claiming comprehensive sex education is a right does not make it so: a close reading of international law.  

PubMed

The international community is currently debating whether international law requires States to educate adolescents about their sexuality. Various nongovernmental organizations, United Nations Special Rapporteurs, and treaty-monitoring bodies assert a right to comprehensive sex education, a controversial approach to sex education that arguably encourages adolescents to experiment with their sexuality. This assertion of a right to comprehensive sex education is erroneous and misleading. International human rights are created in two ways: by treaty and by custom. Treaties do not mention comprehensive sex education, or any other form of sex education or training. Custom, found in international consensus documents and other declarations of political will, and confirmed by State practice, holds no universal agreement on sex education. Because neither treaty nor custom creates a right to comprehensive sex education, no such right exists. PMID:24979877

Teaching and learning apheresis medicine: The Bermuda Triangle in Education.  

PubMed

Apheresis Medicine has evolved markedly due to an explosion of knowledge and technology, whereas the time available for training has shrunk as curricula have become increasingly overloaded. Apheresis teaching has inherited a strong clinical context where real patient problems are used in a hands-on environment. To optimize instruction, those involved in the education of apheresis professionals need to have (1) knowledge of how clinical laboratory medicine education has developed as a field, (2) an understanding of what is known from theory and research about how people learn, and (3) the skills to design teaching/learning activities in ways consistent with literature-based principles of adult education. These developments in education provide a context for curriculum projects currently underway by the American Society for Apheresis. Teachers must determine which competencies are central to the essence of a trained professional. Specific, robust, learning objectives targeted toward the development of higher levels of thinking, professional attitudes, and requisite skills are formulated to guide the learner toward mastering those competencies. Curriculum is developed for each objective, consisting of content and the best teaching/learning methods to help learners attain the objective. Appropriate assessment strategies are identified to determine whether the objective is being achieved. The integration of objectives, curriculum, and assessment creates The Bermuda Triangle of Education (Richter, The Circle of Learning and Bermuda Triangle in Education, University of New Mexico School of Medicine, 2004). When educators do not effectively navigate The Bermuda Triangle of Education, learning may disappear into the murky depths of confusion and apathy. When successfully navigated, the result will be a significant learning experience that leads to transformation through education. PMID:20824624

Nutrition education: a questionnaire for assessment and teaching  

PubMed Central

It is generally recognized that there is a need for improved teaching of nutrition in medical schools and for increased education of the general population. A questionnaire, derived in part from a study of physician knowledge, was administered to first year medical students in order to assess their knowledge of various aspects of nutrition and metabolism, and as a teaching tool to transmit information about the subject. The performance of first year students was consistent with a generally educated population but there were surprising deficits in some fundamental areas of nutrition. Results of the questionnaire are informative about student knowledge, and immediate reinforcement from a questionnaire may provide a useful teaching tool. In addition, some of the subject matter can serve as a springboard for discussion of critical issues in nutrition such as obesity and markers for cardiovascular disease. A major barrier to improved teaching of nutrition is the lack of agreement on some of these critical issues and there are apparent inconsistencies in recommendations of government and health agencies. It seems reasonable that improved teaching should address the lack of knowledge of nutrition, rather than knowledge of official guidelines. Student awareness of factual information should be the primary goal. PMID:15649324

Teaching and physics education research: bridging the gap  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Physics faculty, experts in evidence-based research, often rely on anecdotal experience to guide their teaching practices. Adoption of research-based instructional strategies is surprisingly low, despite the large body of physics education research (PER) and strong dissemination effort of PER researchers and innovators. Evidence-based PER has validated specific non-traditional teaching practices, but many faculty raise valuable concerns toward their applicability. We address these concerns and identify future studies required to overcome the gap between research and practice.

"Teaching as a Competency": competencies for medical educators.  

PubMed

Most medical faculty receive little or no training about how to be effective teachers, even when they assume major educational leadership roles. To identify the competencies required of an effective teacher in medical education, the authors developed a comprehensive conceptual model. After conducting a literature search, the authors met at a two-day conference (2006) with 16 medical and nonmedical educators from 10 different U.S. and Canadian organizations and developed an initial draft of the "Teaching as a Competency" conceptual model. Conference participants used the physician competencies (from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education [ACGME]) and the roles (from the Royal College's Canadian Medical Education Directives for Specialists [CanMEDS]) to define critical skills for medical educators. The authors then refined this initial framework through national/regional conference presentations (2007, 2008), an additional literature review, and expert input. Four core values grounded this framework: learner engagement, learner-centeredness, adaptability, and self-reflection. The authors identified six core competencies, based on the ACGME competencies framework: medical (or content) knowledge; learner- centeredness; interpersonal and communication skills; professionalism and role modeling; practice-based reflection; and systems-based practice. They also included four specialized competencies for educators with additional programmatic roles: program design/implementation, evaluation/scholarship, leadership, and mentorship. The authors then cross-referenced the competencies with educator roles, drawing from CanMEDS, to recognize role-specific skills. The authors have explored their framework's strengths, limitations, and applications, which include targeted faculty development, evaluation, and resource allocation. The Teaching as a Competency framework promotes a culture of effective teaching and learning. PMID:21869655

Sex, risk, and education in donor educational materials: review and critique.  

PubMed

Food and Drug Administration guidelines prohibit men who have sex with men (MSM) from donating blood to prevent the spread of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV/AIDS). Although the deferral criteria leave "sex" undefined, donor educational materials distributed before the health questionnaire often offer a definition. This study analyzes educational materials for their contribution to the donation process and construction of HIV/AIDS. It applies a discourse analysis approach to a sample (n = 52) of such materials obtained in summer 2009 from blood collection organizations listed in the AABB (now referred to as "Advancing Transfusion and Cellular Therapies Worldwide") Directory of Community Blood Centers and Hospital Blood Banks [AABB. Directory of Community Blood Centers and Hospital Blood Banks. Bethesda, MD: AABB; 2009]. It finds that when materials define sex, the definition is "vaginal, oral, or anal sex whether or not a condom or other protection was used," and when materials define HIV/AIDS risk behaviors, the definition is, with few exceptions, "sexual contact with an infected person or by sharing needles or syringes used for injecting drugs." Widespread use of these definitions demonstrates the influence of "Making Your Blood Donation Safe." Through analysis of this document and variations upon it, this research finds that the category MSM therefore provides one component of the construction of HIV/AIDS as the providence of MSM, together with heterosexual Africans and other risk populations, conflating group membership with individual risk. Deferring MSM therefore fails as a behavior-based deferral because it collapses multiple sexual behaviors with varying risks into a single risk category. It constructs all MSM as HIV positive and implicitly constructs non-MSM as risk-free. PMID:22749059

Practice and content of sex education among adolescents in a family setting in rural southwest Nigeria.  

PubMed

A descriptive cross-sectional study to assess adolescents' view of the practice and content of sex education within the family setting in a rural Nigerian community and explore whether there is any association between parental communication on sex and adolescents' sexual debut and habits. Simple random sampling was utilized, while a semi-structured questionnaire was used to collect data from 350 respondents. Data analysis was by the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS version 11). Majority of the respondents (48.8%) were late adolescents, 291 (85.1%) had had sex education, most (45.7%) of whom were exposed between ages 10 and 14 years. The main content of parental sex education was HIV/AIDS prevention (51.9%), avoidance of pregnancy (40.9%), abstinence (38.1%), and basic information about reproduction and biology (35.4%). Poor attitude to parental communication on sex was associated with a higher likelihood of pre-marital sex (p = 0.001). Curiosity was the most common major reason for sexual debut. This emphasizes the importance of early sex education within the family setting and its possible impact in delaying sexual initiation. Promotion of parent-child communication about sexual issues is vital in order to improve the reproductive health of the adolescents in this environment. Community-based health education intervention programs for parents are recommended. PMID:22547497
