'Adolescent Sexuality: Ignorance or Bliss?' at Next Clarkson University Science Cafe

"Adolescent Sexuality: Ignorance or Bliss?" will be presented by Clarkson University Adjunct Instructor of Psychology Gary Kelly at the next Clarkson University Science Cafe at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, March 8, in the Park View Common Room, above the Blackbird Cafe, 107 Main St. in Canton, N.Y., and at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9, at the St. Lawrence Valley Roasters & Jernabi Coffeehouse, 11 Maple St. in Potsdam, N.Y.

Gary KellyResearchers know with certainty that abstinence-based sexuality education doesn't work, yet little is being done to offer young people the information and skills they need to become sexually healthy adults. Recent research is creating a new paradigm for understanding youthful sexual behaviors, whereby the healthy, normative aspects of sexual development are being recognized and embraced. Join Kelly for a discussion of new, fresh perspectives on this timeless, important topic.

Science Cafes bring together engineers, scientists and townspeople in a relaxed, informal setting, such as coffeehouses and pubs. The speaker makes a short presentation about a topic in his or her field, and then opens up the floor to discussion.
