Sexuality and respectful relationships

This training is designed to help people with an intellectual disability or a cognitive impairment to understand the importance of what a healthy and respectful relationship looks like. It looks at different kinds of relationships that a person with a disability has and what is appropriate and not appropriate in those relationships.

The training course goes over two days. Each day, the training last four hours. The course is interactive with lots of activities, interactive discussions and the use of picture cards.

The training environment is made safe for people with disability to enable them to learn and to understand the difference between a healthy relationship and an unhealthy relationship. Participants gain skills in knowing where they can go for help and who they can trust if something bad happens to them in a relationship.

PWDA also offers training as part of our work providing disability support for the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in preventing violence and abuse towards people with disability, including sexual assault.

In the past we have run respectful and healthy relationship peer education training sessions.
