Drawing on extensive professional and personal experience, this book offers guidance and advice on how to better communicate with 12-18-year olds about relationships and sexuality. An invaluable resource for teachers and parents, it provides you with the tools you need to feel confident and informed about how to talk about sexuality education at all stages.

The book explores the challenges in adult-child communication about sexuality and provides helpful advice on how to establish an open and positive dialogue, covering topics like social media, porn and sexual development in UK, US and Australian contexts. Specific age-based guidance and exercises are also offered. Finally, the book ends with the Flag System for identifying 'acceptable/nonacceptable' sexual behaviour and next steps. Throughout, the book emphasizes the importance of positive sexuality education, empowering young people to make their own choices on how to enjoy their relationships and sexuality in a safe and consensual way.

Industry Reviews
Puberty is a crucial time in a young person's life. Preparing children for puberty is different from talking with small children about where babies come from. Fortunately this book supports you during this phase of young people's lives. 'Going beyond "The Talk"' shows how you to have an honest and open conversation about sex and sexuality at home and in school. It gives relevant facts and gives advice to overcome your embarrassment to talk about the most intimate and sensitive issues around sex. I highly recommend it! -- Doortje Braeken, former senior adviser of adolescents, gender and rights of the International Planned Parenthood Federation and International consultant for UNESCO, Plan International, Global Advisory Board for Sexual Wellbeing
