Strategies for Counseling Parents and Adolescents
Adolescence is a very important time in the sexual lifecycle. Physical maturity takes place, increased social interaction occurs, and individuals begin to explore intimacy. Parents are still a major influence in their children’s lives and can have an impact on their children’s emerging sexuality, but as children move into adolescence, the influence of peers becomes increasingly strong. Therefore, as counselors, it is important to consider how these influences intersect with children’s and adolescents’ personal questions and experiences with sexuality throughout their development.
To prepare for this Discussion, review the video case study in this week’s Learning Resources. Think about strategies that you, as a counselor, might use to help the parents in the case study effectively communicate with their child about sex and sexuality. Also consider what issues would be important to address and why.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4 an explanation of two strategies that you, as a sexuality counselor, might use to help the parents in the case study effectively communicate with their child about sex and sexuality. Explain two issues that would be important to address and why.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
