Sexual Self-Determination Training Program
Tier 1: FOUNDATIONS
An Innovative & Interactive Professional Development Opportunity
About Tier 1: FOUNDATIONS
This 3-day, highly interactive and engaging course can be taken as a stand-alone training to strengthen your skills, or as the first part of the full three-part sexual self-determination certification program.
This training will give participants a broad set of tools to understand and support the sexual health and development of people they support. These tools are beneficial for anyone, and especially helpful for people who work with someone who experiences intellectual and/or developmental diversity (disabilities). Over this three-day training participants will:
- Broaden their understanding of sexuality and how it impacts behavior
- Identify healthy sexual behaviors; respond to unhealthy behaviors
- Recognize how trauma impacts sexuality and relationships
- Utilize a framework for balancing risks, choice, and decision-making while proactively supporting someone’s healthy sexual development
After completing this training, participants will feel more confident in providing rights based, medically accurate, and trauma informed support on matters related to healthy relationships, sexuality, sexual health, sexual development, and challenging sexual behaviors.
