Sexual Wisdom for Teens

Santa Barbara’s AHA! Offers Teen Girls Sexual Guidance

Responding to high rates of teen promiscuity both locally and nationwide the Academy of Healing Arts for Teens (AHA!) is offering a 10-week program for mature teen girls (ages 14-18) on “developing sexual wisdom.” Facilitated by Jami Faletti, MFT, a licensed marriage and family therapist, and Dr. Jennifer Freed, who wrote the book Sexual Wisdom, the workshop is a safe place where teens will discuss the values, needs, choices, and realities of sexual decision-making . “The primary purpose of the class is to help teen girls realize that their body is a sacred vessel and that their sexuality is a spiritual treasure,” said Dr. Freed. The workshop is on Mondays, beginning October 6, 5:15-6:45 p.m., at the Family Therapy Institute, 23 W. Mission Street. For more info, call 569-2272 or visit
