However, both Making Proud Choices and Reducing the Risk went through a content update this year, and educators may wish to have the most current edition of these programs. The updated curricula include the following changes:
- Updated data and content to reflect advances in technology and medical accuracy.
- Correction of language that could contribute to stigma or an over-emphasis on a fear-based approach in sexual health education. This included a range of changes, from updating lesson titles to reframing activities and discussion questions.
- Updated language to ensure inclusivity related to gender identity, sexual orientation, and behavior.
