Combining the very latest in prevention research drug use, sexuality with their experience, Pazinatto Educational Consulting promotes since 1997 lectures, courses and workshops in the area of health promotion, sexual orientation and quality of life. To increase the effectiveness of protective initiatives, we propose a shared commitment between family and school adopting a new way to address the impacts of these issues on society.
