- The YES Course
Get on overview of the program.
Session 1: Sexual Identity & Relationships
This session enables participants to get to know each other, settle into a group work process, and understand the contents of the programme. This session also sets the scene for group behaviour by establishing a group contract, so that participants feel safe discussing sensitive topics. It also ensures that participants are clear about respecting one another.
Session 2: Communicating Consent
This session enables participants to explore what consent means legally. It will help the participants to develop their language around consent, so that they can better communicate their consent and respect the consent and non-consent of others. The session also explores boundaries through role play, to enable participants to develop the skills of communicating their consent. Participants will also have the opportunity to practice developing appropriate responses to when consent is given or not given.
Session 3: Wider Influences & Decision-Making
This session enables the participants to explore wider influences on their sexual decision-making. Through exploration of the impact of peers, family, culture and media participants will be able to raise their awareness of how these shapes their personal choices when it comes to sexual decision-making. They will gain an understanding of how their decision- making works which includes logic and reasoning as well as gut based/emotion-based decision making. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with their future selves and connect with the types of decisions and choices they can make that align to their vision of themselves.
