Love House
Miller, Maryellen B.; Cizek, Brigitte
American Journal of Sexuality Education, v1 n2 p83-88 Apr 2006
In February of 2004, the Department of Human Development/Family Studies at the University of Delaware hosted the Austrian Institute of Family Studies. Social worker Olaf Kapella and psychologist Brigitte Cizek presented their LoveTalks workshop which is a model for the community supported sex education program in Austria. The workshop leaders were dynamic speakers who described the LoveTalks preventive philosophy in detail and involved the participants with hands-on curriculum materials. Dr. Cizek, project manager, told the workshop participants that it is generally not a knowledge deficit on the part of the adults that makes it difficult to talk about sexuality with children and adolescents. The problem is communication. Parents and teachers are usually unsure HOW to discuss sex with young people. LoveTalks' three-stage model of sexuality education provides a protected platform for parents, children, and teachers to facilitate communication of sexuality education issues.
