‘Supporting people with disability to navigate relationships and sexuality options of their choosing’
This important session is being conducted by Alicia Melita from Frank Chats with Alicia. Alicia is an educator and counsellor, specialising in relationships and sexuality support for people with disability.
The role of a frontline worker includes providing assistance to people with disability so that they can engage in the same life experiences as other people. This includes providing support to gain knowledge about building and maintaining positive relationships and understanding options for exploring one’s sexuality. This training gives frontline workers the skills, knowledge and resources to appropriately support people with disability to navigate relationships and sexuality options of their choosing.
At the conclusion of the training, participants will be able to:
- Identify the available options to people with disability wanting to explore their sexuality and emotional connection with others.
- Describe the role and limitations of the frontline worker when providing relationship and sexuality support to people with disability.
- Identify best practice in providing a dignified service when exploring the topic of relationships and sexuality.
- Identify appropriate responses when responding to difficult questions around relationships and sexuality and disclosures of sexual abuse – understanding what should be addressed, how to address concerns and where to seek additional support.
Identifying where and when to seek additional assistance when supporting people with disability with understanding relationships and to engage in sexual activities of their choosing
On-line only. Attendees will be sent a link 24 hours prior to the event.
