Merchandise Description

The pedagogical concepts introduced in Making Sense of Abstinence make it unlike other abstinence education manual. There are four key themes that are woven throughout the manual’s sixteen lessons:

  • abstinence education needs to help young people define abstinence in ways that help them understand and apply their decisions in real life
  • abstinence education needs to include decision-making, skills-building opportunities
  • abstinence education is not just talking about which behaviors to avoid, but also the behaviors that are permitted in a person’s decision (and the associated risks and benefits)
  • abstinence education needs to help young people protect their sexual health, and transition safely when they decide to no longer abstain.
