. Understand and appreciate the concept of \"Holistic Sexuality Education\" (HSE)
. Develop a critical attitude toward currently dominant approaches and methods of evaluating sexuality education (SE)
. Appreciate the need to add quality criteria of SE programmes and programme implementation quality variables to the usual outcome and impact variables
. Appreciate that SE evaluation criteria should include more than public health variables, in particular positive \"satisfactory sexual life\" variables
In 2010, the European Expert Group on Sexuality Education released the %u201CStandards for Sexuality Education in Europe%u201D (referred to the %u201CStandards%u201D). This group has been active since 2008, under the auspices of the World Health Organisation, Regional Office for Europe and the German Federal Centre for Health Promotion. The central concept of the %u201CStandards%u201D is %u201CHolistic Sexuality Education (HSE)%u201D. The presentation discusses how evaluation of the results of HSE should be approached. Core recommendations are:
1. For various reasons, (c)RCT methodology is hardly appropriate and therefore various other quantitative as well as qualitative methods should be used in evaluation research.
2. Not just the final (public health) outcomes and impact should be evaluated, but also the quality of the programme itself and the quality of implementation of it.
3. Evaluation criteria should be much broader than the usual public health ones, and these should be developed from a sexual well-being perspective.
4. Positive sexual well-being criteria should be added to the usual sexual ill-health ones.
