Do you deal with issues and provide information about sexuality and healthy relationships to people with an intellectual disability?
Do you want to learn innovative ways to approach the topic of sexuality?
Do you support someone who needs assistance with a particular challenge related to 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. We all need relationships and support, however, persons with an intellectual disability often experience significant social isolation.
SEXCESS! is a 2 day training designed to give you real-life tools to support an individual in achieving healthy sexuality and in developing positive 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 healthy relationships, this training will cover a variety of tools and activities that you can use with individuals to support them through their personal growth. It will be an interactive, informative, and fun-filled two days!
