Do you support individuals with an intellectual disability or ASD to secure and maintain employment?
Have you ever had to deal with issues about sexuality and healthy relationships for people with
an intellectual disability or ASD or to employers?
Do you want to learn innovative and successful approaches for supporting employees and employers
on the topic of sexuality and healthy relationships?
If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, then this training is for you!
We are all sexual beings; however, there is often an uneasiness discussing sexuality, particularly as it relates to persons with an intellectual disability or ASD. We all need relationships and support; however, persons with an intellectual disability or ASD experience significant social isolation. For individuals entering the workforce, this social isolation can be a barrier to developing positive relationships.
SEXCESS for Employment is a 3 day training designed to give you concrete examples and real-life tools to support an individual in developing and sustaining healthy relationships.
Participants will explore three key themes: • Relating to Myself • Relating to Others: Building Healthy Relationships
• Exploring Boundaries, Trust and Ways to Keep Safe
And will take an in-depth look at: • Sexuality • Puberty • Public And Private Spaces • Establishing Boundaries • Abuse Prevention
Whether it is self-esteem, privacy, or building and maintaining healthy relationships, this training will cover a variety of tool and activities that you can use with individuals to support their growth and development in the workforce!
