Creating Pathways to Optimal Health for Youth: Exploring the A-F Topics

This Topical Training examines new research to help Sexual Risk Avoidance Education (SRAE) programs create more effective pathways to empower youth to overcome individual and societal barriers to healthy decision-making. Dr. Philip Hong shares how learning about the psychosocial development of youth relative to culture, environment, trauma, and their lived experiences can help them understand potential pathways to future opportunities. The 3-day training will integrate this new research with each of the SRAE required A-F topics.
