TRAINING DESCRIPTION

Romantic relationships comprise of intimacy, physicality, emotions, and the overall experience of being close to another. However, for all of us, regardless of our stage of life, our relationships have changed during Covid-19.

As the Covid-19 restrictions ease over the next few months, the National Youth Health Programme want to work with youth workers and support young people during this period to look after their sexual health and build and maintain relationships as we enter into a new normal.

The National Youth Health Programme would like to invite you to participate in a two-part online series, Young People, and their Sexual Health during Covid-19. The online series will cover:

  • Sexting and Young People: June 26th
  • Consent and Young People: August 28th

Sexting and Young People

For young people during Covid-19, online communication became the main source of interaction and connection with significant people in their lives. But with the online world, there is a possibility young people could engage in risky behaviours such as sexting.

As Covid-19 restrictions begin to ease over the coming months, and young people begin to resume youth work activities and meet friends, some young people may experience anxiety due to risky sexual behaviours which they may have engaged in during the Covid-19 restrictions.

The National Youth Health Programme, with support from An Garda Siochana, have created a tool ‘Let’s Talk about Sexting’ to support youth workers to start a conversation with young people around the topic of Sexting. The tool will be made available to all during the online seminar and also will be available for download through www.youth.ie
