EYMANN, Alfredo et al. Before and after assessment of a sexuality workshop in high-school students. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2019, vol.117, n.5, pp.e477-e484. ISSN 0325-0075.

Objective. To assess different aspects of the perception of sexuality among students before and after a workshop. Population and methods. Descriptive, qualitative, and quantitative before and after intervention study without a control group. School year, status in relation to sexuality, preferred sources of information, and perception of self-care in relation to sexuality care were analyzed. Results. A total of 272 surveys were completed before the workshop and 259, after the workshop. The perception about a better level of information increased (72.3 % versus 90.7 %), and doubts, fears, and embarrassment decreased. The preference for the workshop as an information source increased (49.1 % versus 69.9 %), and an improvement was observed in the perception of a correct use of condoms (66.8 % versus 81.1 %), birth control pills (20.3 % versus 42.5 %), and emergency contraception (18.5 % versus 40.9 %). Conclusion. Students' information and perception of self-care in relation to sexuality increased.
