Let's Talk About X's
Relationships And Sexuality Education

SEMINARS for STUDENTS

Using our combined experience in sexology, psychology and secondary education, we've designed seminars to equip young people with the communication skills they need to form healthy, respectful relationships. 

Our facilitated seminars are designed in consultation with recent high school graduates and aligned to the Victorian Curriculum. They combine the latest research in Relationships and Sexuality Education with student feedback and our expert knowledge of what actually works in the classroom.

Years 7-9

SEMINARS FOR JUNIOR SECONDARY

Make a difference with your next Respectful Relationships incursion. Our 60 minute (or single period) facilitated seminars are designed to make meaningful change. They help young people become more respectful and resilient, teaching healthy communication skills that form the foundation of consensual, respectful relationships.

Consent, Congruence and Dating

 

Early high school comes with a whole range of new types of relationships to navigate. In this seminar, we provide students with the tools to ask their friends or partner what they would like when it comes to physical touch (like holding hands, kissing and hugging) and even spending time together. Students will also learn how to read body language to determine whether or not they have received an enthusiastic yes, as well as how to communicate clearly and openly to manage expectations and keep everybody feeling safe.

Reframe Rejection

 

As young people grow up, they often come to view rejection, or being told ‘no’ as a bad thing, which can have damaging implications for future relationships. In this seminar, aimed at junior secondary school students, we examine why this view has come about, and then challenge it by examining situations where it’s good to be told ‘no’. Students will come away with practical strategies they can use to mentally re-frame rejection, helping them become more resilient, respectful young people.

Consent Online

 

Tackle non-consensual photo sharing head on, with this seminar. Taking a harm-minimisation approach, we help young people understand the laws around sharing sexually explicit photos (including image-based abuse and child pornography). We also teach the skills to check for consent when sharing any photos, tagging, or talking about someone on social media, because respectful relationships online start with practising consent in day-to-day scenarios.

Let's Talk About Pornography

 

Whether their parents restrict their devices or not, many young people are turning to pornography as a way of learning about sex. But the reality is that porn models a whole range of unhealthy, unsafe and non-consensual behaviours and also reinforces ‘beauty standards’ that lead to body image issues. In order to combat this, we will guide your students through frank and honest discussions around the ways in which pornography does not actually reflect sex in the real world.

Years 10-12

SEMINARS FOR Senior SECONDARY

Make a difference with your next Respectful Relationships incursion. Our 60 minute (or single period) facilitated seminars are designed to make meaningful change. Our seminars for senior students delve deep into consent, helping them learn the key skills they need to keep others safe and comfortable in both intimate relationships and everyday scenarios.

Consent and the Law

Students will learn about the new affirmative consent laws, and what this looks like in practice. We’ll go beyond simply outlining the laws, ensuring students know how to apply their understanding of affirmative consent to the real world. Using everyday non-sexual scenarios, students will learn to differentiate between verbal and non-verbal consent, and identify non-consent.

Create Space for a 'No'

We’re all aware that ‘they didn’t say no’ isn’t a valid defence when it comes to sexual harm. Coercion, or the freeze/fawn response can make it hard to say no. But do young people actually know what a ‘no’ looks like? Can they recognise when a verbal ‘yes’ is actually a ‘no’?  This seminar will help students understand the value of being told ‘no’, and teach them to recognise a no in those ‘gray areas’. They will also learn strategies to make those around them feel comfortable telling them ‘no’.

Affirmative Consent Skills

In this seminar, we use everyday, non-sexual scenarios to teach the communication skills vital for affirmative consent. Students will learn to check-in, as well as seek and give direction and feedback. There’s also a focus on practising ways to speak up if something doesn’t feel quite right for them.
