Abstract

Abstract: Significant evidence supports that (a) parent-child connectedness and religion are protective factors against adolescent risk behaviors; and (b) children want to have conversations with parents about sexuality but parents frequently do not feel comfortable or knowledgeable to teach on this sensitive subject. Nurses can be instrumental in facilitating communication between parents and children about sexuality. This article describes a sexuality workshop provided by nurses in a faith community setting.
