A Handbook for Child Welfare Providers
The diversity and educational content given in this book is astonishing. Not only does it have the ability to challenge child welfare workers to continue evaluating their beliefs and biases and to keep an open mind when working with young people, it can also be used as a tool to educate and train mentors and parents about the world of sex and sexuality. As an expert with lived experiences in foster care, a young parent, and social worker, I would highly recommend this book as a tool to all professionals working with youth and adolescents.

This manual provides adults working with youth in the child welfare system, from case workers to foster parents, with the tools to combat problematic, inaccurate, and harmful sexuality information that comes from families, classrooms, peers, partners, and the media. It supports providers as they consider their own biases, history, and knowledge base, and affirms that sexuality education is an integral piece of caring for youth.
We offer training on this manual to support professionals as they expand their understanding of how education fits into therapeutic models.
