Webinar: Promoting Healthy Relationships among People with ID/DD - Part 1
Wednesday, July 29, 2020, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM CDT
Category: Events

As social creatures, it is natural for us to seek connections with others and to develop many different types of relationships including sexual and romantic relationships. This is true for all people - including the people you support who have intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.  As a disability professional, one of your roles is to help the people you support develop the skills needed to establish healthy relationships - those that foster health and well-being. In this two part webinar, participants will:

  • Define sexuality and sexual self-advocacy.
  • Gain knowledge about sexuality and specific issues for people with developmental disabilities including human sexual development, healthy v. unhealthy relationships, and consent.
  • Explore our own values and attitudes regarding sexuality and strategies for managing our values.
  • Explore ways to communicate about sexuality with people with developmental disabilities and their parents/guardians.
