What, wait! You Want Me to Talk about Sexuality? Healthy Relationship Boundaries are Important for Everyone
Presenter: Katherine McLaughlin
Description: We are seeing more and more examples in our culture of those who have crossed lines. Even though people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are sexual beings, just like everyone, they also need the information and skills to navigate these waters and learn what's okay and not okay in various settings. This webinar will explore tips and tools for addressing sexuality one-on-one with the individuals you work with. We will explore why this topic can be difficult to approach and useful tools that will help you become more comfortable and confident and communicate about this sensitive topic.

Learning Objectives:
• Discuss the benefits of providing sexuality education
• Explore messages people with I/DD receive about sexuality
• Examine activities to teach healthy boundaries including different types of relationships, public v. private, moving from friend to partner, body language, communication, and speaking up
