Education For Choice has extensive experience of working with young people, facilitating discussion of unplanned pregnancy and abortion. Our training courses draw on this experience to offer an overview of all the issues around abortion - from young people and the law to different cultural perspectives. The courses are an opportunity for those working with young people to explore their own attitudes and values around the issue and to get the support they need to develop their professional practice in a range of settings.
We are happy to discuss tailoring a day to the needs of the professionals in your area.
