The Parenting and Family Support Centre (PFSC) at the University of Queensland and Family Planning Queensland (FPQ), Brisbane have collaborated to develop a brief group intervention program to help parents learn how to communicate with their children about sexuality.
In the past, few people felt able to talk to their children about sexual matters. It is not surprising therefore that some adults might find sexuality an embarrassing and difficult subject to talk about. Today, most parents and carers want their children to feel positive about their sexuality as they grow up. They recognise the lifelong benefits of communicating openly and honestly with their children about these matters.
Before the program becomes widely available, the PFSC and the FPQ need to gauge the effectiveness of this program. As such, they are offering complimentary brief group interventions for parents. During this group discussion with other parents you will be asked to think about goals for your child and yourself, and discuss what strategies you can use to help your child develop their own sense of self and understanding of their bodies and relationships in a safe and healthy manner.
