Description:

This training takes place at

YAI

460 West 34th Street

First Floor

NY, NY



This workshop is designed as a Train-the-Trainer course. We will explore tools and techniques to better support adults with IDD to develop healthy and functional expressions of their sexuality from a sex-positive viewpoint, which aligns with the YAI’s sexuality policy. The YAI Sexuality Policy states: “Sexuality is integral to the total way in which people relate to their world. Everyone has the need to love and be loved.” This is an annual foundational training to help staff become and maintain awareness of the sexual rights of the people they support and the various ways of supporting them.



Topics Covered:

● Sexual rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and how those rights have historically been taken away

● Negative outcomes of repression of sexual feelings

● How to adjust your lens to a more sex-positive one

● How to address social-sexual issues using the YAI Sexuality Policy as a guideline

● Laws regarding sexuality and people with IDD

● How cultural norms and values can deny the people we support of their rights

● Scenarios and cases involving all cognitive levels

● How to develop a comprehensive training system for staff based on the YAI system.



This training is taught by Consuelo Senior of YAI



Target Audience: Program Managers, training directors, supervisors, administrators
