Safe Love Week Extended!
Consider this sex-positivity 101! Confidence, Consent and Communication focuses on creating a positive relationship with sex. Learn how to move beyond judgment and stigma to embrace what works for you, and to be more comfortable voicing what doesn’t. We will also discuss how to handle different wants and needs, and how to hear a ‘No’ with compassion. Sex positivity affects our self-image, our ability to communicate and establish boundaries, and gives us permission to approach new experiences with a resounding ‘Yes!’.
Open to everyone!
This workshop will be facilitated by Rachele Manett of Venus Envy Halifax.
This workshop will take place on Zoom Webinar. The Zoom Webinar format has an anonymous feature that allows students to attend as participants without their name appearing to the rest of the attendees. Registration Link.
