What a great session!! 

The importance of STI screening post sexual assault, the relevance and role of technology in violence, and the great initiatives in response to violence in Aboriginal communities. 

My future practice will definitely change to incorporate conversations around violence to both potential victims and perpetrators of sexual violence.  Often questions are not routinely asked of potential perpetrators regarding behaviors that are unacceptable. 

Incorporating technology and its potential risks has been highlighted as an often forgotten element of health and sex education to the younger generation. Emphasizing the risks of private photos and events being shared needs to be stressed when delivering health education in an attempt to encourage people to think about the potential consequences before sharing photos or film clips seems simple, however is frequently not discussed when delivering education. 

Great presentations by everyone and very moving personal stories shared.
