...
If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, then this training is for you!

We are all sexual beings; however, there is often an uneasiness discussing sexuality, particularly as it relates to persons with an intellectual disability. We all need relationships and support, however, persons with an intellectual disability often experience significant social isolation.

SEXCESS! is a 3 day training designed to give you real-life tools to support an individual in achieving healthy sexuality and in developing positive relationships.

Participants will explore three key themes:

• Relating to Myself • Relating to Others: Building Healthy Relationships • Exploring Boundaries, Trust and Ways to Keep Safe
And will take an in-depth look at: • Sexuality • Puberty • Public And Private Spaces • Establishing Boundaries • Abuse Prevention

This workshop will be presented by Danny Soucy. Danny has spent most of his career working on behalf of persons with disabilities. His experience includes Executive Director at NBACL, Director and Community Liaison Officer at Camp Rotary and Executive Director of the Grand Falls Association for Community Living. Danny is also a parent to an adult son with a disability.
