- What to do if you are pregnant.
(2) Learn about:
- Gynecological health issues, i.e. yeast infections, urinary tract infections, toxic shock syndrome, breast cancer, PMS, etc.
- Finding & talking with your health practitioner.
(The focus here is general women's health and pregnancy prevention, rather than on protection from disease.)
- Work on establishing personal boundaries, self esteem, and effective communication
- Discuss what behaviors we feel are appropriate in different kinds of relationships i.e. friends, family relationships, roommates, romantic partners.
(The Rape Crisis Center now does their own floor programs. Therefore, we will not focus on issues of rape and sexual assault in this program.)

- Safer Sex with latex barriers.
- Communicating with your partner
The Mirror Image
- Explore self-esteem, eating issues, and body image.
- Find out how these issues connect with your sexuality and impact our whole lives.
(The idea here is to move away form focusing on eating disorders. We will still provide pamphlets and information, but will concentrate on the broader issues.)
