This course was developed by Dr. Gordon Neufeld (Vancouver-based developmental psychologist and best-selling author of “Hold On to Your Kids”) for all those involved with today’s teens including parents, teachers and helping professionals. It is also useful preparation for parents of pre-teens.
How is sexuality meant to develop? What is happening today that is different than in previous generations? How does sex affect the brain and bonding? In this course, Dr. Neufeld examines sexuality through the lenses of attachment, maturation and vulnerability. He sheds light on why adolescents are losing their timidity, why sexual interaction is on the rise, and why sexual bullying is becoming a problem. He explores the meaning of safe sex from an attachment-based developmental perspective and provides suggestions for contributing to the healthy unfolding of sexuality in our youth.
