    Course Description:

    Access to accurate information healthy relationships and physical intimacy for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities is lacking in today's society.  Many family members and caregivers struggle with discussing the topic of relationships, intimacy, sexuality and safety and also with how to present the information in a way that the person with developmental disability will understand. Further information to assist caregivers on providing this education to those they care for is also limited.  Availability of trainings or high costs of healthy relationship curricula prevent caregivers, schools or other agencies from providing the education themselves.  The importance of this type of training for caregivers is undeniable as people with I/DD are 4 to 7 times more likely to experience sexual assault than people without disabilities.  A lack of access to accurate information contributes to the likelihood that people with I/DD may experience abuse and/or exploitation.  In an effort to better prepare people with I/DD fore healthy relationships is a must!  Thus, it is necessary to empower caregivers so they can empower those they care about.  This will be an open and honest discussion about sexuality and supporting your family member or the person you support to feel safe.

    This is an interactive workshop, so we recommend that you login into the zoom meeting using a laptop, desktop, or device that has a camera, mic, and speakers which will allow you to share your video and be visible and interact with the other attendees.

    The Art of Supervision Training Series

    Attend this interactive training series to learn more about the art of supervision and challenges encountered daily at work. Most of us do not choose the team members we supervise. We inherit them when we get hired or they are sent to be a part of our team by human resources. As a supervisor, sometimes we inherit people that have been in their position for a long time and are just waiting to retire and sometimes we are sent team members with little or no experience and tons of questions. Middle management level supervisors are "sandwiched." Your challenge is to share the messages and directives from the top with the members of your team and motivate them to get everything done by the deadline. Attend this workshop to learn about how to cope with these challenges in today's workplace.
