The Big Picture: a Western Australian Perspective on Educating Educators about Sexuality Education.

Lorel Mayberry

The aim of this presentation is to showcase the Western Australian teacher support materials – Growing and Developing Healthy Relationships (pre-primary – year 10) and to highlight issues around teacher training in sexuality education. Sexuality education is an integral part of the health education curriculum yet many teachers are generally unprepared and feel uncomfortable about teaching sexuality education. Sexuality and drug education are regarded by teachers as the most difficult areas to teach, and correspondingly some teachers avoid teaching in these areas.
