What Do you Really know? About S.E.X & What Do you Really think? about Relationships This double set of cards offers an opportunity to encourage full and frank discussion around the whole issue of s.e.x. & relationships. They give young people a chance to explore their own beliefs and to examine whether these beliefs are actually beneficial to their emotional and mental health or whether they wish to amend them to fit a more healthy approach. What Do you Really think? about Relationships: Stable relationships are the bedrock of society: children and young people thrive in them; adult mental health is to a very large degree, dependent upon them. However, many people form their ideas of relationships from the media: soaps; films; magazines. The ‘celebrity culture’ is seen to be the desirable model of living. As we all know, this can lead to a distorted view of what constitutes a real and lasting relationship. However, spending time in discussion with young people will prove that they have more realistic ideas, if only they have an opportunity to express and develop them. What Do you Really know? About S.E.X: Each card of which displays one statement, many of which have actually been claimed by students during S&R lessons, and reveal that, although young people today have far greater access to information and knowledge than previous generations, that knowledge can be frighteningly patchy or based on myths passed on by friends. Some cards have been designed to be deliberately ambiguous to show the importance of identifying exactly what is meant as many wrong beliefs develop because students misunderstand what they are told. There are 6 different sections, including: Contraception ▪ Pregnancy: ▪ STIs ▪ The Internet ▪ P.o.r.n. The cards can be used in small groups, in large groups, or with individuals struggling with relationship issues. They are recommended for use in schools, colleges and in mental health situations. Includes two sets, over 82 cards and comprehensive notes.
