Relationships and Intimacy: Supporting People with Developmental Disabilities

Relationships and Intimacy: Supporting People with Developmental Disabilities

Sexuality is a fundamental part of being human, and sexual development begins at birth and continues throughout our lives. Individuals with developmental disabilities deserve to obtain knowledge about their physical, emotional, and social development regarding sexuality, and have the freedom to learn about these things in an atmosphere that is non-judgmental, free of fear, shame, and exploitation. Caregivers’ ability to educate people with developmental disabilities on this topic is crucial to their understanding and perspective of sexuality which impacts their behavior. Caregivers struggle with discussing the topic but also with how to present the information in a way that the person with developmental disability will understand. Thus, it is necessary to empower caregivers so they can empower the people they care for. 

Attend this training to:
Increase knowledge about how messages impact sexuality.
Increase knowledge about how disability impacts sexual development.
Examine how the values professionals and caregivers have impact our ability to discuss sexuality with people with disabilities.
Review effective ways to answer questions about sexuality.
Review effective techniques in responding to behaviors.
Increase knowledge about techniques to support sexuality of people with developmental disabilities.
APPROVED for 4 Clinical CEU SW hours by NASW-LA Chapter and 3.5 general CLE hours.

This training will be presented by:

Rebecca Mandal Blasio, Ph.D. and Sharon Delvisco, MSW
