Training Overview Description

Join us for Sex Talk for Self-Advocates Webinar #3, Safe Sex Practices - Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). This webinar series addresses self-advocate questions about relationships and sexuality. Webinar #3 will focus on safe sex practices related to sexually transmitted infections.

Event-specific Details

The sexuality educators will talk about questions and topics such as:

"How do I have safe sex?"
"What is a STI?"
"What do you do if you get a STD?"
"How do you ask your partner if [they] have a STD?"
"How to avoid diseases?"
This is a great learning opportunity for self-advocates, and professionals and paraprofessionals working with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to better understand relationships and sexuality.
