Learn more about the Deceptions curriculum on the Northwest Family Services website.
Illusions/Deceptions is provided by AWARE, Inc. AWARE offers a variety of prevention programs that are appropriate for a wide range of ages and groups, including public schools, private schools and any youth serving organization. 



ILLUSIONS is an eye-opening 2-hour PowerPoint presentation for grades 8-12 that dramatically exposes the harmful effects of pornography. 

Through appropriate, guided interactions, students come to recognize that just beneath its seductive veneer, pornography is a dangerous underground world of deception, addiction and relationship devastation. Students learn how porn warps the brain’s perceptions of sex, love and intimacy. And best of all, armed with this knowledge, they become better prepared to resist its allure and pursue healthy relationships.
