It’s Not Just About Saying “No” – Proactive and Person-Centered Sexual Supports (9/20/2022)

Wednesday, August 17, 2022, 10:00 am - 11:30 am Registration is limited to 30 people
OTAC Trainings · July 27, 2022

Session Description

We can and should expect people to seek romantic relationships and express their sexuality. When they do, it is important to understand how to balance safety with empowerment.
This training will discuss how to teach people to make informed decisions about their relationships and sexuality, and explore practical skills for supporting the sexuality of the individuals you support (from children to adults). You will build a foundation of proactive, preventative strategies to use with people you work with.
This course is now approved for CEUs for Oregon Adult Foster Care Providers and Washington Long-Term Care Workers.

Learning Objectives

During our time together we will learn:

    • Understanding safety, risk, and supported decision-making
    • Recognizing why you should provide access to people: friends, potential partners

    • Understanding how to be proactive and person-centered
    • Offering safe and healthy alternative behaviors
    • Recognizing the value of teaching and building social and sexual skills
