Philosophy principles and practice in sexuality education for professionals

Dr Rosemary Coates, AO

Within general education circles there are a number of approaches to educational philosophy, the ones arousing the greatest debates are those articulated by the outstanding educators of their respective eras, such as Dewy, Friere, and Montessori. It is rare to find clearly articulated sexuality education philosophies in peer reviewed literature. One can find statements in locally produced, special interest group literature. These include religious groups with a tendency to extreme positions and libertarian groups who attempt to counter religious arguments. These statements might be viewed as philosophies; however, they are not clearly articulated and may be easily de-constructed through rational argument. A more temperate, and therefore a more generally appealing, approach must be promoted.
