Talking About Sexuality

At various points, we all have questions about our bodies, about sex and about love. So what happens when you are the person being asked for advice?

Talking About Sexuality is a workshop that will help to inform the way we support people in understanding healthy sexuality and relationships. We address how to respond to questions about sex, masturbation, dating and other related topics. There is opportunity to discuss our fears, concerns, values and to understand our role as caregivers and support people in the development of healthy sexuality.

This 2-hour workshop is geared towards caregivers/parents/guardians of people with developmental and/or physical disabilities and Direct Support People, and is open to all community members. Talking About Sexuality is delivered in partnership with SHORE Centre.
