New Listening Project: “REAL TALKS”

From February to June, a cycle of 8 free meetings for young people aged 14 to 22: a new opportunity for discussion and growth on the themes of sexuality and affectivity.

at Villa Angaran San Giuseppe in Bassano del Grappa (Vi) 

The first date to mark on the calendar is 22 February, when, from 6 p.m., the spotlight will be on the first theme on the programme: “Am I in love or is it just sex?”. 

It will be Dr. Sonia Sedini, psychologist and psychotherapist, who will lead the open discussion with young people on the themes of sexuality and affectivity, highlighting the subtle differences that can lead to misunderstandings in relationships. 

The “REAL TALKS” Listening Project provides young people with a unique opportunity: to discuss topics considered taboo with their peers, supported by the presence of experts who, by guaranteeing an inclusive and relaxed atmosphere, will dispel doubts, offer definite answers and thus distance young people from the fake news that often circulates on the web or through word of mouth. 

They will talk about the difference between sexual acts and affectivity, how to establish respectful love relationships, prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, the LGBTQ+ community, and much more.

Participation in each meeting is free of charge. Registration for each date will be required through the Eventbrite portal, on the Orange 1 for People Foundation page.

The cycle of meetings, after the 22 February event, will continue with the following programme:

– 07/03 PLAYSAFE: TALK ON THE PREVENTION OF SEXUAL DISEASES

Speaker: Dr. Andrea Cocco, Director SSD Obstetrics and Gynaecology ULSS 7 Pedemontana 

– 21/3 SEX EDUCATION

Speaker: Dr. Annalisa Navarra, psychologist, psychotherapist and sexologist
