SCOTTS VALLEY, CA – August 10, 2018
ETR is proud to be the publisher of the new seventh edition of the popular textbook Sexuality Education: Theory and Practice by Clint E. Bruess and Elizabeth Schroeder. The book is a staple in higher education courses on human sexuality and educator preparation programs, and is also an excellent resource for public health professionals, health education program administrators and those who provide sexuality education in community-based programs and school settings. It not only empowers future educators to confidently teach elementary, secondary and college students, as well as community members, about human sexuality, but is also a helpful reference for seasoned education professionals seeking current information and successful methods for teaching this material.

In particular, the seventh edition:
- Highlights important progress that has been made in the United States with regard to sexuality education funding, programs and policies, as well as the current status of these initiatives.
