Workshops

Research all over the world clearly shows that young people need better sexual health and relationships education. In Australia, tertiary institutions are starting to realise that this type of support needs to be offered to their students, as university in particular can be a time that many adolescents find difficult to navigate when it comes to this area. At SEA, we work with both domestic and international students to offer comprehensive, sensitive and fact-based health and human development programs. Our courses for international students are mindful of the different cultures and backgrounds they may be coming from, and clearly explain Australia’s laws and social norms. We can also run sessions for residential colleges as well as those who live off campus and attend during the day.

TOPICS THAT WE CAN COVER INCLUDE: 

  • respectful relationships
  • consent and coercion
  • sexual assault and sexual harassment
  • sexual decision-making and negotiation
  • sexual diversity including gender and sexual identity
  • sex and the law
  • safer sex
  • STIs and contraception
  • doctor-patient confidentiality
  • sex and technology (pornography and sexting)
  • sexual ethics – rights and responsibilities

OUR PROGRAMS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: 

  • acknowledge cultural diversity
  • are clearly and simply communicated
  • are non-judgemental
