Adult Foster Care Provider Training Group: Demystifying Sexuality with STAR Services
Tuesday, May 23, 2023
Not open to the general public
These training groups are for license holders and caregivers only (and child foster care license holders serving 18-21 year old only) . Please make separate arrangements for child care.
Let’s talk about sex! Historically, people with disabilities have been denied, or thought to not be interested in, the same level of intimacy and romantic relationships as people without disabilities. In turn, many people with disabilities were denied information about sexuality as a way to protect them. However, these practices may actually have increased the likelihood of being abused or exploited. While it is natural to have concerns and worry about the people we support, every human wants and needs some level of connection with others. Please join us to learn how you can foster an open environment for discussions on relationships and intimacy for the people you support. We will review rights under HCBS provider settings and share resources.
