Sexuality and sex education for visually impaired people are still a few subjects studied in the field of Education. The aim of this study was to investigate sexuality and sex education of the visually impaired, through an interview with an adult woman, blind from birth, for further analysis of thematic content. It is a descriptive-qualitative case study. The following categories were described in the results: (1) Concept of sexuality, (2) Sexual Education, (3) Sexuality and Disability, (4) Social issues and prejudice. The data confirm other studies showing the existence of social prejudice, sexual myths, no sex education or sex education with superficial information and difficulties predominantly psychosocial and not organic in relation to sexuality. We conclude that sexuality and sex education are important issues that should be considered in the general education of people with disabilities.; A sexualidade e a educação sexual de pessoas com deficiência visual são ainda temas poucos estudados no campo da Educação. O objetivo deste estudo foi investigar a sexualidade e educação sexual de deficientes visuais, por meio de uma entrevista com uma mulher adulta, cega de nascença, para posterior análise de conteúdo temática.

Teachers’ conceptions result from the interaction between their scientific knowledge, their systems of values, and their social and professional practice. Obstacles to teaching sex education may have several origins: epistemological, didactical, psychological and social. The aim of this research is to identify teachers’ conceptions and obstacles, that prevent them from teaching sex education. We intend to apply several research instruments: questionnaires, debates, focus groups, individual interviews and specific cases registration. The research starting point was the questionnaire. Its preliminary results suggest that sexual intercourse, fertilisation and sexual pleasure are the most difficult content, that the environmental milieu, the community and the church are the main obstacles to teaching sex education, and that specific training for sex education teaching seems to be necessary.; European Science Education Research Association (ESERA).; nmw-essen - Research Group & Graduate School Teaching & Learning Science.

The main goal of the present study was to understand the evolution of primary school textbooks as far as reproduction and sexuality is concerned, since its implementation (1993), giving special emphasis to both scientific rigour and pedagogical approach. Only a graphic improvement was found along the studied time since the scientific drawbacks are maintained along the time. Results show that textbooks give to Human Reproduction a “minor” status when compared to other human biological systems taught in primary school. Some concepts are definitively wrong and others are taught in an ambiguous way allowing pupils’ acquisition of alternative and wrong conceptions.; European project FP6 Biohead-Citizen CIT2-CT-2004-506015.; Fundação para a Ciencia e Tecnologia (FCT) - LIBEC/CIFPEC 16/644 (unidade de investigação).

We present a comparative analysis in textbooks of different 15 countries on the topic “Human Reproduction and Sex Education” by using a specific grid of analysis. The focus is on two sub-topics associated to pupils’ development of responsible behaviour: the control of reproduction (e.g. choice of contraception) and the Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs). AIDS is presented in all textbooks analysed. Some countries, but not all, give also information about other STDs. We analysed condom images and how textbooks refer to the way of using it. Results show differences not only between countries but also between publishers of the same country.; European project FP6 Biohead-Citizen CIT2-CT-2004-506015.; Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia - LIBEC/CIFPEC - Unidade de investigação (16/644).

We present a comparative analysis in textbooks of different 17 countries on the topic “Human Reproduction and Sex Education” by using a specific constructed grid of analysis. The focus is on two sub-topics associated to pupils’ development of responsible behaviour: the control of reproduction and the Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs).. Results showed important differences from one country to an other, even if AIDS is presented in all textbooks analysed. Some countries textbooks, but not all, give also information about other STDs. Special attention was given to condom images and how textbooks refer to the way of using it.; European project FP6 Biohead-Citizen CIT2-CT-2004-506015.; LIBEC/CIFPEC - unidade de investigação (16/644) da FCT.

Tese de Doutoramento no Ramo de Estudos da Criança, área de conhecimento de Saúde Infantil; A educação sexual nas escolas portuguesas tem sido um processo difícil de concretizar apesar do enquadramento legal e das orientações escolares existentes e que promovem a sua implementação. O presente trabalho incide na identificação de concepções, obstáculos e argumentos dos professores do 1.º Ciclo do Ensino Básico (1ºCEB) neste domínio. A investigação desenrolou-se em três fases distintas: - na FASE I construiu-se, validou-se e aplicou-se um questionário a 486 professores de 1ºCEB, tendo sido feita uma análise descritiva e uma análise inferencial dos dados; - na FASE II organizou-se um debate sobre a educação sexual na infância, onde se incluíram 4 professores de 1ºCEB com opiniões diferentes, tendo sido utilizada a técnica dos termos pivot com vista à organização de categorias de concepções e tipificação de argumentos; - na FASE III realizaram-se cinco grupos de foco que integraram no total 19 professores de 1ºCEB, seguindo-se a mesma técnica de análise de dados utilizada para o debate. Os dados recolhidos por meio do questionário indicam que os professores de 1ºCEB: i) concordam mais com a educação sexual no ensino secundário e no 3ºCEB; ii) têm a percepção de que a frequência com que as crianças lhes colocam perguntas aumenta ao longo dos 4 anos do 1ºCEB (perguntando sobretudo como são concebidos...

School Sex Education is nowadays an important public health issue as it concerns not only youth AIDS prevention (and other sexually transmitted infections – STI) and adolescent pregnancy prevention but also interpersonal relationships and psychosocial issues. Therefore school sex education contributes to promote better citizenship. The European FP6 Biohead-Citizen research project aims to understand how biology, health and environmental education can contribute to improving citizenship. It analyses the social representations and practices of teachers in several countries, focusing on their differences and associating them to controlled parameters (e.g. social context, religion, gender). In this communication we analyse data concerning teachers’ and future teachers’ conceptions on the topic of sex education derived from a questionnaire that was constructed and tested during the first year of the project. The questionnaire was completed by 5189 teachers and future teachers from 12 countries. We used statistical multivariate analyses, a method that has become standard for investigating complex data derived from many individuals that needs to be analysed according to many variables (here we have used the responses to the questions as variables). The results show that the factors that correlate most closely with the teachers’ and future teachers’ conceptions are religion...

School-based education programmes are particularly good at providing information and opportunities for skills development and attitude clarification in more formal ways, through lessons within a curriculum. To public health, school sex education is nowadays an important public health issue as it concerns not only youth AIDS prevention (and other sexually transmitted infections) and adolescent pregnancy prevention but also interpersonal relationships and psychosocial issues. So it’s very important to well know the obstacles to sexuality education’s implementation. Therefore school sex education contributes to promote better citizenship. Various researches show the importance of social representations on teachers’ individual conceptions and practices. In this communication we analyse teachers’ and future teachers’ conceptions about sex education by using a questionnaire from 12 countries of Europe, Africa and Middle East, focusing on differences in conceptions related to controlled parameters (e.g. social context, religion, gender). It was applied to 5189 teachers and future teachers and we used standard statistical multivariate methods to investigate the structure of this complex dataset. The results show that teachers’ conceptions and future teachers’ conceptions clearly correlate to social representations linked to the countries’ culture...

The purpose of this research was to identify primary school teachers’ conceptions about sex education in classroom. More precisely, in this paper we analyse teachers’ perceptions of children’s behaviour concerned with sexuality arousal, teachers’ perceptions of their specific training needs to teach sexuality topics and the influent factors in these conceptions. The research was developed in three steps: a questionnaire was carried out and applied to a sample of 486 individuals; a debate was organized between four teachers, being two favourable to sex education and the other ones not favourable; five focus groups were realized with a total of 19 participants. The questionnaire data were statistically analysed. Content analysis of debate and focus groups transcripts was carried out by using the pivot terms method, in order to identify conceptions categories and argumentation. The questionnaire results show that the most frequent children’s behaviours noticed by teachers are: talking about boy/girlfriends; touching colleagues and drawing genital organs; observing colleagues in the toilets; manipulation of pornographic reviews and to have knowledge that children assist to pornographic movies. Teachers’ training needs are essentially concerned with: scientific knowledge to teach what is necessary; to prepare them to answer to children’s unpredictable questions; to prepare them to develop values awareness; to help them to identify and solve children’s sexual abuse; training in articulation with sex education processes at school; and training to deal with these topics with parents. In the focus groups teachers reported several situations of children sexual behaviour at school and specified training needs...

Cet article présente les résultats une partie de l’analyse de 6001 questionnaires recueillis auprès d’enseignants et futurs enseignants de 15 pays (Europe, Afrique et Moyen-Orient) dans le cadre du projet Biohead-Citizen. Il s’agit d’identifier les différences de conceptions des enseignants sur l’éducation à la santé et à la sexualité et de mettre en exergue les facteurs les influençant. Nous avons procédé par analyses en composantes principales et analyses discriminantes qui montrent l’importance des formations et des statuts (niveau de formation, niveau d’enseignement, discipline et statut) et l’incidence des représentations sociales et des conceptions individuelles (pays, religion, niveau de croyance) qui conduisent à des positions parfois très opposées sur l’enseignement et les contenus de l’éducation à la santé et à la sexualité, sur l’égalité des sexes, sur les droits des personnes et sur la prévention. Certaines conceptions apparaissent comme des obstacles. Se posent alors les questions des pratiques d’enseignement et de la formation des enseignants.; This paper presents the results of a questionnaire applied to 6001 in-service and pre-service teachers from 15 countries (Europe...

According to Portuguese Law, Sex Education (SE) in schools is compulsory from elementary to secondary school levels. However, many SE projects do not consider the needs of their target audience, or their gender differences, which limits the programme effectiveness. In this work we sought to identify conceptions and needs concerned with human sexuality and SE of school-aged boys and girls (10 to 18 years old). Thus, we developed a questionnaire for the second and the third cycle of basic education students attending an Oporto school. We chose to carry out our own questionnaire in order to fit it to our methodology and we validated it with a pilot study. Questionnaire was filled in online and results were processed with SPSS statistical program. The questionnaire was filled by 397 students (192 females and 205 males). The average age of the respondents was 12.79 years old. Regarding the distribution of students by different school years we obtained: 85 at the 5th, 84 at the 6th, 55 at the 7th, 95 at the 8th, and 78 at the 9th. Data revealed significant differences between boys and girls in terms of sources of information, with girls preferring mother while boys preferring internet. Considering the school role in SE differences were found for the perception about teachers’ knowledge to respond to students’ questions...

A Lei n.º 60/2009 e a Portaria n.º 196-A/2010 regulamentam a aplicação da Educação Sexual (ES) em meio escolar tornando obrigatória a sua abordagem desde o 1.º Ciclo do Ensino Básico (CEB) até ao Ensino Secundário. Contudo, muitos projetos de ES não consideram as necessidades do seu público-alvo, o que limita a sua eficácia. Neste trabalho procuramos averiguar conceções e necessidades de adolescentes relativamente à ES, para delinear uma intervenção adequada às suas necessidades. Para tal elaborámos um questionário para aplicação a discentes de 2.º e 3.º CEB, de um agrupamento de escolas do concelho do Porto. Para que o questionário se adequasse plenamente aos propósitos desta investigação optámos por ser nós a construí-lo e validá-lo, através de um estudo piloto. Os questionários foram preenchidos on-line e os dados obtidos foram tratados estatisticamente recorrendo ao programa informático SPSS. Responderam 397 alunos (192 do sexo feminino e 205 do sexo masculino). A média de idades dos respondentes foi de 13 anos, tendo os mais novos 10 anos e os mais velhos 18. Relativamente à distribuição dos alunos pelos diferentes anos de escolaridade, 85 frequentavam o 5.º ano, 84 estavam no 6.º ano...

Background: Promoting sexual and reproductive health of adolescents contributes to their personal and social education (Ramiro et al, 2011). However, there is often a gap between the perception of the school about the sexuality of their students and the reality they actually live in. As so, the SE projects implemented may not coincide with the young people real needs (Allen, 2008). Objectives: This research aims to identify the needs of basic education students on human sexuality and sex education (SE) and, from these, to develop their skills in order to promote a healthy sexuality. Participants: We worked with a convenience sample of 2nd and 3rd cycle students of Portuguese basic education attending a school in urban milieu. Methods: Being an action-research project, at the diagnostic phase we carried out a questionnaire for the second and the third cycle of basic education students attending an Oporto school. Questionnaire was filled in online by 397 students. The data obtained were taken into account when developing a SE program applied to 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grade students, in the school by teachers. After the program we applied a new questionnaire, which was filled in on paper by 112 students, in order to ascertain the changes occurred. Results: About 47% of the students acquired a comprehensive concept of sexuality...

Participatory and action-orientated sex education projects were carried out in 15 preparatory and secondary schools in the north of Portugal. This involved three hundred and fifty students from the 7th to the 12th grades. The main objectives were to analyse the level of students’ participation in the project phases and the student’s action competence. The research techniques used were field notes, semi-structured group interviews and documental analysis of material put online by students regarding their projects, online class diaries and discussion e-forums.The results of this study revealed that by using this educational approach, these students: worked on the four dimensions of action-oriented knowledge; used a positive and broad concept regarding sexual health; developed visions aimed at the causes of the problems; actions were carried out in partnership with specialists that involved their parents and their colleagues. 5. most of the students perceived themselves as having a high level of participation in the project.; Instituto de Educação, Centro de Investigação em Educação (CIEd)

Student participation has become a central aspect on various levels of international debate regarding health education teacher training and evaluation of health education projects. Participation is a prerequisite to develop student action competence and a result of that process. A participatory action-research constituted by Portuguese teachers (N=86) from 16 schools having as one of its objectives to investigate how teachers´ practices on Sex Education change during in-service teacher training, was carried out. These results and their implications in terms of health education teacher training and the organization and management of the Portuguese school curriculum will be presented.; Instituto de Educação, Centro de Investigação em Educação (CIEd)

Today there is a strong trend in educational research to focus on the methodological aspects within the health area. In this paper we argue that health education has to deal with an interdisciplinary context oriented at specific health problems. Biological knowledge can describe the extension of health problems which typically empower us to consider statements such as: “if I do this, this will happen” or “if these are the conditions or circumstances, the risks may increase”. This knowledge is important because it arouses our concerns and attention and, consequently, creates a starting point in order to feel the desire to act. In this sense, it can be one of the prerequisites to develop students’ empowerment and action competence. Besides the construction of this scientific knowledge, if we only consider this perspective and students are not given any explanation as to the reasons why problems exist and how we can contribute to solving them, we run the risk of contributing simultaneously to the arousal of concern and the formation of action paralysis among pupils. The S – IVAC methodology (Selection of the problem – Investigation, Vision, Action & Change) has been developed as a practical instrument to construct the action oriented knowledge of students and to promote the development of actions to increase their action competence. As a result of this...

A group of individuals who share common beliefs form a culture in which they communicate their values and attributes about certain aspects of society. Sex education remains one of the early teachings that humans experience irrespective of the race or level of development of a given society. However, different cultures perceive sex education differently due to differences in attitudes and beliefs, leading to significant diversity in the management of sex education among different societies across the globe. Many studies have found that in a traditional society with a homogeneous culture, the foremost reason for the different approaches to sex education is related to traditional values, in addition to other factors such as religion and political belief. In order to improve sex education, and consequently, sexual health in a modern multicultural society such as Australia, it becomes imperative to identify the inconsistency in beliefs about sex education among individuals with different cultural backgrounds in the Australian population. In this report, the author highlights similarities and differences in the methods employed by certain cultures of the Australian population. The report considers the different cultural environments of specific societies...

Sex education for individuals with intellectual disabilities is important. However, our knowledge about effective methods for teaching sex education to this population is limited. We report the results of a systematic review identifying methods for sex education programs aimed at individuals with intellectual disabilities. In all, 20 articles were included that met the criteria set in terms of topic—the effectiveness of sex education programs—and population of interest—individuals with intellectual disabilities. In these articles, methods for increasing knowledge and for improving skills and attitudes were reported. However, the studies revealed that generalization of skills to real-life situations was often not achieved. There are indications that the maintenance of knowledge and skills still needs extra attention. Moreover, detailed descriptions of the program materials, program goals, and methods used in the programs were often lacking in the reports. Although there is some evidence for methods that may improve knowledge, attitudes, and skills with regard to sex education aimed at individuals with intellectual disabilities, due to the lack of detailed descriptions provided it is unclear under which conditions these methods work. We therefore suggest that authors provide additional detail about methods in future publications or in online supplements.
