Activity 1.2: Who Am I?
|Who Am I?
|The purpose of this activity is to enable participants toexplore who theyare as sexual beings.
|Participants will be able to begin to communicate their needs and wants in relationships.
|Introduction (explain this to participants)
There are many things that define us and these things can change throughout our lives. Part of who we are, is what we do and how we behave. This might include particular sports or interests, or how we wear our clothes. We often hear of people saying, ‘I don’t know who I am!’. You are you. You are made up of the things you like and dislike, the people you gravitate towards and those you prefer not to hang out with.
Part of what makes us who we are is our sexuality, sexual identity, orientation and sexual
In the large group discuss:
|Sometimes people cover up who they are and try to behave like someone else that they think other people want them to be, so they are liked or fit in. This can sometimes happen in relationships, where one person tries to please others by behaving in particular ways, sometimes forgetting who they are and what is important to them.
|For a more creative approach, using art supplies e.g. paper, markers, paint, face masks, invite participants to illustrate themselves as sexual beings.
