Amélie Sauvé (collaborator)
Amélie is a sexologist specializing in sexuality education for children and adolescents. The psychosexual development of young people is the focus of her professional practice.
She holds a Master’s degree in sexology and has more than 10 years of experience in intervention with various clienteles, as well as in setting up intervention programs and training professionals. She is a member of the Ordre professionnel des sexologues du Québec (OPSQ). She is also the mother of two school-aged girls and is therefore doubly concerned about the sexuality education of children.
Amélie frequently meets parents who feel helpless and uncomfortable when it comes to discussing sexuality with their children. Yet, children and teens live and evolve in a hyper-sexualized society, where they are confronted daily with images and sexual content that present false messages about sexuality. They are growing up in a world where sexuality is too often limited to genitalia, where nudity is normalized, where gender roles are stereotyped and where sexual violence is unfortunately trivialized. More than ever, sexuality education must be part of the development process of children and adolescents.
Her services are diversified and are intended for parents, children and adolescents, as well as the professionals who work with them. It offers a personalized approach to each of its services, from private consultations to training for professionals.
