Public/Private Ventures (P/PV)

Legacy Collection

Innovation. Research. Action.

After almost 35 years Public/Private Ventures (P/PV) has ceased operations. The organization leaves behind an incredible legacy of knowledge, including hundreds of research reports, case studies and evaluations about how best to improve programs and outcomes for children, youth and families. We are fortunate that P/PV has decided to archive its publications collection with the Foundation Center's IssueLab so that practitioners can benefit from this knowledge for years to come.

Walking the Plain Talk: A Guide for Trainers

May 30, 2003

The Plain Talk model is designed to improve adults' communication with teens about responsible sexual behavior. This publication is a "Training of Trainers" manual for "Walkers and Talkers" and "Home Health Parties," and is a companion piece to the Plain Talk Implementation Guide. This manual provides trainers with the information and materials they need to conduct training sessions for neighborhood residents. It is organized around core training topics, such as adolescent development, family communication, and reproductive health. Every topic includes an overview of the learning objectives and training tools such as lesson plans, sample lectures, and role plays. These training materials were designed by the original Plain Talk sites and found to be effective in diverse neighborhoods, particularly African American and Latino communities.
