ETR made changes to both MPC and RTR in 2020 to ensure inclusivity and a trauma-informed approach, and to meet recent legislative requirements in certain states.
The following changes were made to both MPC and RTR in the 2020 program updates:
- Reviewed and updated data and content to reflect advances in technology and medical accuracy.
- Addressed any language that could contribute to stigma or over-emphasize a fear-based approach in sexual health. This included a range of changes, from updating lesson titles to reframing activities and discussion questions.
- Insured inclusivity related to gender identity, sexual orientation, and behavior.
- MPC-specific changes: Provided updated video alternatives with discussion questions in a separate supporting document.
- MPC-CA-specific changes: Several new activities were added to the California Edition of MPC (MPC-CA) to ensure alignment with the most recent California Healthy Youth Act (CHYA) regulations.
