Product Description

This curriculum training event is for those wanting to learn and become certified to teach a sexual health curriculum to parenting adults. The Building Family Connections (BFC) curriculum is a ten-module interactive sexual health curriculum. It teaches content on sexual health, skill-building on parent-child connectedness and communication. Effective parent-child communication makes healthy adolescents! Since parents are the most influential factors in an adolescent’s sexual decision making, it is essential that parents talk to their children before their peers or the media does. Increasing parent-child communication on the sensitive topic of sexual health can lead to a delay in sexual activity in adolescents. However, parents are hesitant to talk to their children about sex or do not know how to do so. The curriculum provides information on how parents can communicate effectively with their children on sexual health issues. The BFC curriculum was developed with funding by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and is provided by the Medical Institute. 


The 2-1/2 day BFC Curriculum Training will be held on Wednesday-August 16, 2017, Thursday-August 17, 2017 from 8am-5pm and half day on Friday-August 18, 2017 at the Training Room A (2nd floor) in the Mississippi Department of Human Services Bldg. at 750 N. State Street, Jackson, MS (parking will be available behind the CVS).

  • Training participants MUST complete the entire 2-1/2 days of training to be certified to teach the BFC curriculum to parents.
  • The training materials, lunch and refreshments during the 2-1/2 day training will be provided.
  • The BFC Curriculum Training offers 13.75 CEUs for Mississippi social workers.
