Parent-child communication has been shown to improve sexual health outcomes for youth. Although many parents want to talk with their children with I/DD about sexuality, they don’t have the confidence and skills to do this, oftentimes, uncomfortable task.
We can support these parents by leading workshops on how to talk with their own children in a positive and effective way. This training is designed for parent trainers to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to lead parent workshops to help other parents talk about this topic with their own children. During this training, we will explore human sexual development and what topics are important to teach, when to teach the topics, and how to teach the topic. We will review a parent workshop curriculum, examine what is difficult for parents and how to overcome those barriers.
After attending this two-day workshop, participants will have the skills and the tools they need to host a two-hour workshop, including handouts, presentation slides, evaluations, tips for success, and on-going support. They will also receive a certificate of completion for passing a learning objective assessment.
