The purpose of The T.O.P.* Workbook for Sexual Health is to support young people in decision-making that promotes health and well-being, particularly sexual health. Research on this topic indicates youth in foster care are 71% more likely to experience unplanned pregnancy than are other young adults. Sexual responses to trauma can be managed and turned into healthy coping strategies that promote pregnancy prevention. This workbook is designed to do just that.

The workbook provides a structured approach for exploring the impact of previous trauma on current behavior. The Trauma Outcome Process is a conceptual framework designed to simplify how painful life experiences impact thoughts, feelings, physiological reactions, and behavior. The workbook represents an integration of clinical material relating to trauma and sexual decision-making from a variety of sources and professional disciplines.

The workbook has been peer reviewed by licensed mental health clinicians working in child welfare and community health.  It was piloted with youth in independent living programs and those aging out of foster care.
