This training is designed for those who are interested in implementing a prevention education program for high school students in their city using Sexual Risk Avoidance [SRA]. Having an SRA program in your community that is empowering, hope-filled, current, and research-based is a great way to build bridges with schools, and your PRC. But, if you don’t know how to even begin this process, join us to see how to get started.
Current research shows that parents are still the greatest influence in the lives of their students. Yet, most parents do not often feel equipped to broach the topic of sex and other high-risk behaviors with their children. Using the SRA approach, PRC’s can be resources to the parents in churches and their communities to educate and empower parents with information and resources to have these conversations.

Whether you work in a maternity home, medical clinic, or pregnancy center you and your staff regularly encounter different forms of pregnancy loss both among the clients you serve, and sometimes even amongst staff.
In this training, participants will explore the different types of pregnancy loss that occur within pregnancy help organizations including miscarriage, abortion, and adoption. Not only will we explore the similarities and differences between each of these different types of losses, but we will also explore these losses as they relate to clients and staff including important self-care techniques to avoid compassion fatigue.
