Professionals

CASPP provides community professionals with training on how to teach sexual decision making, parenting, and relationship skills to adolescents and young adults. We address teen sexuality and parenting issues from a comprehensive perspective, including the complex interplay of critical medical, social-emotional, developmental, and cognitive factors that need to be addressed to prevent negative outcomes such as HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy, and poor parenting.

Two programming areas we focus on are preventing high risk sexual behavior and programs to ameliorate problems of young parenting.

Connecting for Children
Connecting for Baby
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD's), Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Pregnancy Prevention
Missouri Volunteer Resource Mothers (MVRM)
Journaling program
Maltreatment and Adolescent Pregnancy and Parenting Program (MAPPP)

To find out when training for these programs is scheduled, go to the training page.

If you have questions about anything, please feel free to contact us.

In addition to training for these curricula, we provide technical assistance to you on how to administer them in your own community. We can help you find support and marketing, as well as do evaluation of the training.

There is a large amount of research on adolescent sexual health and decision making. Part of the services we provide is a consolidation of the research in areas that might be of most concern to professionals and parents. If there is an area that you would like more information on, please contact us and we would be happy to help.

View our conference materials here.

There is a wealth of information on the web as well. To find out what kids are looking at to get information as well as provide you with websites to refer teens you may work with, we have assembled a list of websites that we find most popular or provide great content. In many of these websites, there is content for adults and parents as well so make sure you check it out.
