Many people with disabilities don’t have access to information about relationships and sexuality. GMSA designed this 2 to 4 day training because we believe that when people have information they can make better decisions. After attending this training, participants will:

  • Have lots of information about sexuality and relationships and know where to get more information if they don’t have the answers
  • Be more comfortable talking with peers and friends about sexuality and relationships
  • Be on a team and teach workshops on healthy relationships and sexuality
  • Be able to help run a men’s group or women’s group
  • Talk about the meaning of sexual self-advocacy

Max Barrows, a Peer Sexuality Educator from Montpelier says,

I think it is very important to have Peer Sexuality training for people with disabilities. As a person with Autism I have experienced great fear around sexuality.  However, these Peer Trainings have helped me overcome these fears by providing me with good information … Having  information shared by peers has allowed people with disabilities to feel more empowered about these issues, and we would like to have this important work continue.”

This training is sponsored by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England and Green Mountain Self-Advocates.
