Sexual behaviours and positive behaviour support
All people, including people with a disability, have the right to access effective relationships and sexuality education programs, resources, information and clinical services.
This workshop explores sexuality and relationship issues and the impact of disability on individuals.
Participants will be actively involved in developing strategies to promote healthy relationships and
sexuality for people with a disability.

- formulate a shared understanding of sexuality
- explore attitudes and values about sexuality
- understand relationships and sexuality issues for people with disability
- develop positive strategies for responding to sexual behaviours which impact negatively on the person or others
