We have over 25 training topics (see below). They are all designed to help people understand and support healthy social-sexual behaviors and sexual self-determination within an ecological framework using innovative strategies, skills, and solutions.

The primary audiences for our trainings are people who support vulnerable individuals, such as someone with neurodiversity or intellectual/developmental diversity (disabilities). The topics are applicable to anyone, but are especially geared to parents and families, foster care providers, case management staff, direct support professionals, and special education teachers.
