Date: Wednesday, June 19, 2019 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Relationships & Intimacy Workshop

This training is for Self Advocates with developmental and intellectual disabilities and their family members and/or caregivers. Sexuality is a basic part of being human, and sexual development begins when we are born and continues throughout our lives.  As a person with a developmental disabilities you deserve to learn about your physical, emotional, and social growth about sexuality, and you have the freedom to learn about these things in a way that is non-judgmental, free of fear, shame, and exploitation. This will be an open and honest discussion about sexuality and keeping yourself safe. Many family members and caregivers struggle with discussing the topic of relationships, intimacy, sexuality and safety and 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 about. There will be a session for self advocates and a session for family members/caregivers at each location listed.
