Some people present with different disabilities, many of which are not immediately apparent to providers or educators. How can therapy professionals effectively assess & help these individuals? What do we need to know as educators about sex and ability? How can our cultural attitudes about visible and invisible disabilities interfere or encourage personal agency? Through discussions, a panel of people with varying challenges, didactic information, personal experiences, and interactive activities, participants will discover strategies and coping mechanisms they can use and new ways of envisioning sex.
By the end of this course participants will be able to:
1. Identify the physical, emotional, and invisible factors that affect sexual abilities.
2. Explain how “sex” is an evolving concept based on pleasure and connection, rather than performance or function.
3. Describe the importance of communication before, during, and after sex for people with different abilities.
4. Experience someone describing how cancer has impacted their sexuality.
5. Identify ways to kindle desire when health issues compromise sexual desire.
6. Name ways couples can foster emotional intimacy despite medical, mental, and physical challenges.
