Barışcan ÖZTÜRK [1] , Erol ESEN [2]


Riskli cinsel davranışların sıklıkla görüldüğü ergenlik döneminde, ergenlerin doğru bilgiye ulaşmaları ve ihtiyaç duydukları becerileri geliştirmelerinde kapsamlı cinsel sağlık eğitimi önemli rol oynamaktadır. Cinsel sağlık eğitiminin etkililiğinde önemli unsurlardan biri ise eğiticinin nitelikleridir. Bu çalışmanın amacı, cinsel sağlık eğitici eğitiminin psikolojik danışmanların ergen sağlığına ilişkin yeterlilik algılarına etkisini incelemek ve katılımcılara katkılarını, güçlü ve güçlendirilmesi gereken yönlerini değerlendirmektir. Çalışmada nicel ve nitel verilerin birlikte kullanıldığı karma yöntem desenlerinden biri olan iç içe desen kullanılmıştır. Araştırmanın nicel boyutunda deneysel işlemin etkisini incelemek için tek grup öntest sontest deseni, nitel boyutunda ise fenomenolojik yöntem kullanılmıştır. Çalışmaya gönüllü katılımcılar arasında seçkisiz olarak belirlenen 25 psikolojik danışman katılmıştır. Nicel bulgular, cinsel sağlık eğitici eğitiminin katılımcıların ergen sağlığına ilişkin yeterlilik algılarını arttırdığını göstermektedir. Araştırmanın nitel bulguları ise, eğitici eğitiminin katılımcıların beklentilerini karşıladığını, bilgilerini arttırdığı, becerilerini ve farkındalıklarını geliştirdiğini ortaya koymaktadır.
