“We hosted Katherine’s training with over 25 of our providers in attendance. I also participated in the training and found it to be absolutely incredible. Katherine’s very easy to understand curriculum and her open style of teaching made the workshop especially valuable. Many of the providers who attended are now going on to develop their own sex ed groups for the individuals we serve.”

“This was the best training I’ve ever attended. It was so engaging. Have a lot of great materials to bring back with me. Thoughtfully conducted.” – Worcester participant.

“After attending this training, I have the tools and knowledge to embark upon the journey of teaching on the subject of Human Sexuality. I had fun, laughed and built friendships that will last a lifetime. One of the first experiences educating a group on this topic after completing the training, I made large poster that said, ‘Your body is your own.’ A young person approached me after our time together and asked if they could take a picture of the poster. ‘I want to show this to my girlfriend because she tries to put the sex on me.’

“I knew this was an important conversation we were having and am so happy to have been given the tools to mindfully guide this young person along the journey of self-advocacy. When we take the fear and stigma away from the topic of “sex” we are able to educate and begin to have meaningful conversations that are empowering.” – Maggie Rollwagen – MSW
