TeenSTAR in Chicagoland

This Wednesday evening in Oak Park, Dr Hanna Klaus will be at St Giles Parish to present the TeenSTAR curriculum.

Dr. Klaus is a Medical Missionary Sister as well as an Obstetrician/Gynecologist  who has piloted this program “which uses learning one's fertility pattern to teach responsible decision-making and communication skills in the area of sexual behavior and enhances teens' self-understanding and self-esteem.” Klaus is the International Director of TeenSTAR.

The TeenSTAR program (Sexuality Training in the context of Adult Responsibility) is a developmental curriculum for students grades 7-9, and can be adapted for older students and settings.  TeenSTAR emphasizes the physical, emotional, spiritual, emotional and social aspects of sexuality training.  Parents, teachers, physicians and other health professionals, interested adults as well as young adults are welcome to review this program utilized throughout the world.
