Live Class, Portland, OR

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.
