Online Workshop: Preventing Abuse: Helping Self-Advocates Become Sexual Self-Advocates
We know the rate of sexual abuse among people with I/DD is very high, 7 times higher than the general population. And, we also want people with I/DD to lead full, healthy lives and have relationships that are enriching, supportive, and not exploitative. One way to help prevent abuse, and support healthy, satisfying relationships is with sexuality education that teaches self-advocates to become sexual self-advocates.
This online workshop will cover the knowledge and skills needed to achieve this goal. We will explore the latest statistics regarding abuse and learn useful tips and tools for helping people become sexual self-advocates. We will discuss topics to include when working with self-advocates, such as: body parts and body autonomy, skills for saying no, and the difference between a healthy, unhealthy, and abusive relationships.
