Training Overview Description

Description

When it comes to talking about sexuality, people with disabilities are often excluded, almost as if they are incapable of having sexual thoughts, feelings and needs. In reality, they too are sexual beings who need the information and skills for making healthy decisions about sexuality. Though agencies and schools who work with people with developmental disabilities know that sexuality issues need to be addressed, they don’t necessarily feel comfortable or competent enough to do so. This training will give you the curriculum, tools, and skills to teach sexuality education classes and lead staff/parent training.

As a result of this training, you will be able to:

  • Describe how to help people with disabilities become sexual self-advocates

  • Identify our own values and attitudes and how those impact your ability and effectiveness in teaching this topic

  • Explain what makes it difficult for staff and parents to talk about sexuality with consumers and discuss solutions to those barriers

  • List ways to teach this topic with other agency staff, parents, and people with disabilities

  • Demonstrate effective training techniques to use with staff, parents, and people with disabilities

Approved by the National Association of Social Workers for 17 continuing education contact hours (Approval #886798975-8066).
This training counts for 8.75 education credits towards the requirements to become a Certified Sexuality Educator (CSE) through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (ASSECT).

*Participants will receive a certificate of attendance or, if they pass an assessment following the training, a certificate of completion. This is an ABC training (assessment based certificate) This certificate does not make them a certified sexuality educator and trainer, and they can still teach sexuality classes.
