This workshop is for anyone who is interested in providing positive support to people with an intellectual disability about sex, sexuality and relationships. This includes, family members, carers, support workers, co-ordinators etc.
It will explore the meanings that you give to sexuality and specifically the meaning you give to sexual education for people you support.
You will identify barriers that exist for people being able to have their sexual health and relationship education needs met.
You will use and critique resources specifically made for sexual health education of people with an intellectual disability and explore the benefits of 1:1 education vs small group education and hear how this has been applied successfully in real life scenarios.
During this workshop on occasion you will hear explicit language and see explicit imagery.
