TURBO TRAINING (90 mins)
Join us for a special, skill-building workshop considering the vital issues of sexuality and aging. The session will be full of new information, fresh perspectives and clear paths toward supporting a healthier sexual future for our ageing community.
Let's explore how we can better protect the sexual rights of older adults or those with a disability when prevailing myths tell us they aren’t sexual! Discover how to dispel these myths while learning about the exciting developments being made in research at the intersection of sexuality and aging.
- explore attitudes to ageing and/ or disability and sexuality and how this affects practice
- identify strategies for providing inclusive support
- undertake a component of self-assessment and start to develop an action plan for improving practice
Who should participate?
This training is appropriate for those who want to develop or refresh their person centred, inclusive approach and really make a difference in people's lives. Staff, volunteers, managers & coordinators working in Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)/Disability funded services are highly encouraged to attend.
