Not Just "The Talk" (How to Help Prepare Your New Student for College Relationships)

College is a foundational time for building healthy intimate relationships, and new college students are at the highest risk for experiencing sexual and relationship violence. Most new college students don't receive comprehensive, medically accurate, and inclusive sexuality education prior to coming to school which puts them at a disadvantage. But...parents and guardians can help by initiating these types of conversations prior to the start of school and this session is designed to help navigate talking with your new college students about their values, expectations, boundaries, desires, non-negotiables, consent, and communication.
