Webinar: What, wait? You want me to talk about sexuality at Project SEARCH? Talking one-on-one with Individual with IDD about Sexuality and Relation

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Healthy relationship boundaries in the workplace is an important skill for us all.  We are seeing more and more examples in our culture of those who have crossed workplace lines.  Even though people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are sexual beings, just like everyone, they also need the information and skills to navigate these waters and learn what’s okay and not okay in the work setting.  This workshop will explore tips and tools for addressing sexuality one-on-one with our interns.  We will explore why this topic can be difficult to approach and useful tools that will help you become more comfortable and confident and communicate about this sensitive topic.

Katherine McLaughlin, M.Ed. is a national expert and trains individuals, staff, and parents on sexuality and developmental disabilities.  She teaches sexuality education to people with DD/ID as well as trains them to be peer sexuality educators themselves.  Katherine is the author of an agency and school curriculum: Sexuality Education for People with Developmental Disabilities, and has developed two online courses; one to train professionals, Developmental Disability and Sexuality 101, and one for parents: Talking to Your Kids: Developmental Disabilities and Sexuality. Katherine has spent her career trying to elevate the status of all people, which is why the new name for her growing company is Elevatus Training.
