Description: 
This resource is to be used by individual trainers as well as organizations working on sexuality and sexual and reproductive health. It provides training content, tools and methods to demonstrate and strengthen the connections between sexuality, sexual health, reproductive health and human rights. Most of the exercises in this manual have been developed and tested during training programmes and cover basic concepts along with more complex issues. Detailed message points and instructions for each exercise make the document appropriate for both experienced as well as novice facilitators. The manual can be used in a variety of ways, depending on the facilitator's goals and the level of understanding, experience and nature of work of the participants. The purpose of this document is to provide resources to effectively conduct a training course on sexuality, and sexual and reproductive health and rights. The document contains five modules in addition to a special section for facilitators ("Preparing to Train"). It provides over 75 exercises covering more than 70 hours of training time: Module 1: Basic concepts on sexuality - developing sex, sexuality, gender, pleasure and eroticism. Module 2: Sexual and reproductive health - introducing sexual and reproductive anatomy and physiology, conception, contraception, abortion, infertility, HIV and AIDS, and STIs. Module 3: Sexual and reproductive rights - addressing human rights and more specifically those related to reproductive and sexual health. Module 4: Beyond basics - developing sexuality and power, stigma, discrimination, marginalisation and disability. Module 5: Making it work - emphasising values, principles and ethics. The document begins with a section for the facilitator "Preparing to Train". This section is intended to increase the facilitator's understanding and capacity to train on sexuality, sexual health, reproductive health and rights in order to become comfortable and confident about the issues. It includes general training tips and ideas to provide the facilitator with basic tools and methods to conduct effective and interesting training. The appendices contain links to selected human rights documents, and a sample listing of films that can be used to enhance the training process.
