Originally published in 1989. This book describes a variety of ways to plan and implement sexuality education and provides in-depth information on resources available. Each contributor describes one aspect of the practice of sexuality education: its goals, theory, planning and development, implementation, evaluation, teacher-training, or the role of community agencies. Articles in each section offer practical and useful guidelines for conducting sexuality education and also serve as a sound introduction to the subject. Annotated bibliographies appear at the end of each section.
