WholeSomeBodies was developed as a primary prevention/health promotion strategy to reduce first-time incidents of sexual violence. Adults who participate in WholeSomeBodies will increase their knowledge of healthy sexuality and increase their skills and motivation to model and teach healthy sexuality to the youth and children in their lives.
The resource includes a Guide for Facilitators and a Particpant Workbook with activities and materials to support workshops that address topics such as etymology and circles of sexuality, sensuality, gender, childhood messages, body image, and media awareness. Additional material addresses action planning and how to have difficult conversations. WholeSomeBodies hopes to foster individual and social strengths to resist and change cultural norms that allow sexual violence in our communities.
