One of the main ways we will meet our aim to support young people to navigate the current culture and the increased influence of pornography, is through engaging with local schools to provide input to the PSE curriculum.
As associates of the Naked Truth Project, Karen and Kate are fully trained to deliver material in a Scottish context. The Naked Truth lessons cover a number of topics relating to the damaging impact of pornography, including: how pornography affects the brain; sexting; and the influence porn has on body image. An outline of each Naked Truth lessons for secondary schools can be found at www.ntruth.education
Naked Truth describe their material as ‘non judgemental, age appropriate, relevant, bold, engaging and honest education to support young people as they navigate life through the Digital Age. Our flexible and adaptable curriculum-based lessons and presentations do this through engagement with personal real-life stories from the educators, up-to-date scientific, psychological and sociological research, creative media, interactive content and peer-led discussions.’
We also have access to the Romance Academy material and can provide one-off extra-curriculum workshops based on their material, as well as the full 10 week Romance Academy course. The material explores various aspects of relationship choices, including self-esteem, consent and future goals. More information about Romance Academy can be found at www.romanceacademy.org
