A healthy relationship is a human right. That concept is the focus of a workshop is coming to Prince Albert today (tues) and Saskatoon tomorrow (wed).
The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute points out that in recent months issues of sexual harassment, sexual assault and the meaning of connsent have been high on the conversation list. And the Institute believes this stresses the importance of providing young people with the skills they need to recognize and have relationships which are healthy. The workshop will feature speakers from Action Canada, Makeda Zook, and Brittany Neron who both have previous experience in discussing sexual health to public audiences.
Jackie Eaton, of the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute says the workshop, which her organization is hosting, will see educators who work with youth come out and learn information that they'll be able to take back to the classroom. Eaton adds the goal of the event is for people who work with youth, such as teachers, to obtain practical tools to engage youth on the topic of healthy relationships. Natalya Mason from the Saskatoon Sexual Heath Centre will also speak at the two workshops. Tomorrow's workshop in Saskatoon starts at 1 p.m. at the Willows Golf and Country Club.
