THE TALK: A SHOW ABOUT SEX AND RELATIONSHIPS
CAN BE TAILORED FOR PARENTS AND CARERS or YOUNG PEOPLE
In this highly acclaimed show, Nelly goes into school and other communities and talks about how to have The Talk with kids and adolescents about the birds and the bees and what's below the knees.
The show is based on Nelly’s ground-breaking sexual health and ethics DVD The Talk and is fun, informative and light-hearted. it covers:
Physical safe sex
Emotional safe sex
Culture and society
Tips and tricks for getting the conversation happening
The Talk goes for approximately 60 minutes mins followed by a Q&A with Nelly, the local school nurse (or counsellor) and the parents. There are separate versions for Primary and Secondary schools or a longer, combined session is possible.
This session is available for individual bookings by schools or health services and is a great way to get the parents involved in their kids’ health.
"Nelly presented to Years 9, 10 & 11 students (approximately 300 children!) at Leongatha Secondary School July 2017. Nelly, thank you! This has to be one of the most effective sessions on sexual health and well being, respectful relationships etc for teenagers that Gippsland Centre Against Sexual Assault (GCASA) has had the privilege of facilitating. Your comedic skills ‘had’ all of us from your first line, and the momentum did not wane throughout. Children (and adults- teachers, GCASA staff persons, panel members etc) were laughing, participating, resistance to potentially ‘boring’, ‘embarrassing’, ‘I know it all’, ‘does not concern me’ etc topic areas dissolved. Your knowledge of and approach to those topic areas, your sensitivity, straightforwardness as situation demanded, and also generosity in sharing from your own life narrative- the engagement of your audience (adults and children), all were so effective. We love learning through humour! GCASA looks forward to more with Nelly Thomas!" Marie Feeley, Senior Clinician, Gippsland Centre Against Sexual Assault
