Building Healthy Relationships at Work

March 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

People with developmental disabilities are often left out of the conversation about sexuality and relationships, almost as if they are incapable of having thoughts, feelings, and needs. In reality, they, too, are sexual beings that need information and skills for making healthy decisions about sexuality. As someone who works in a competitive integrated employment setting or a worksite, you see the need to address relationships and sexuality on a one on one basis with people with I/DD who are employees. We will explore what are the topics and main points to teach and examine techniques for helping people with I/DD to have healthy work relationships.

In this webinar, participants will:
– Gain knowledge about relationships and sexuality and specific issues for people with developmental disabilities.
– Explore knowledge and skills for building healthy relationships at work including types of relationships, public and private, and working with coworkers.
– Explore ways to communicate about sexuality with people with developmental disabilities.

This webinar is part of CFN’s March Lunch & Learn Series: Supporting Care Farmers with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities
