Fostering Understanding of Sexual Responsibility
Sexuality is an integral part of human lives. It fulfills a number of personal and social needs but when exercised irresponsibly it can have a variety of negative outcomes including violent behavior.
The Institute infuses the important topic of healthy sexuality throughout many of its trainings as a proactive tool to prevent becoming a victim or defendant. The objective is to foster the understanding of sexual responsibility in its broadest sense. And, while personal responsibility is crucial to anyone's health, communities also have important responsibilities, so the message must reach beyond the individual. Communities may provide access to developmentally and culturally appropriate sexuality education, respect for diversity and freedom from violence.
