Affective & Sexual Life Training Workshop | New Reflections | Sydney

Affective and Sexual Life: Social-Sexual Education



Affection, love, relationships and sex are all normal aspects of one’s life. However, unsafe practices are associated with risks and health problems, both physical and mental. These can be harmful to our own health and also to our partner’s health as well. Learning key skills, tools and knowledge to avoid these negative health outcomes is important in one’s development.

But it is not only the physical aspect of a relationship that affects one’s well-being, but also the emotional aspect of that relationship. How we interact with our partners, how we understand their needs, how respect is shown between them, the trust is developed and maintained and the responsibilities of being in a safe and respectful relationship all affect the well-being of partners. The maintenance and evolution of a successful relationship pay significant attention to the emotional aspect.

New Reflections understands that the development of relationships is a natural aspect of one’s experiences. Our Affective and Sexual Life workshop will teach skills, tools and knowledge so that individuals can develop a safe, healthy and secure relationship with their partners. Participants will also learn the appropriate measures to take in order to avoid negative and unsafe outcomes.
