About the event
This is an in person workshop for parents and carers who are supporting their loved one with intellectual disability to explore romantic relationships. The first half of this workshop will be a presentation where we will discuss:
• What is a romantic relationship and what does it contribute to our lives?
• Human rights and love, how do they interact and why are they important?
• Supporting decision making and a framework to guide this practice.
• Why is education and support crucial for people with intellectual disability as they explore romantic relationships?
The second half of this workshop will be an open forum where we will discuss concerns and strategies around supporting your loved one to navigate relationships. We will present some case scenarios to discuss but open and honest discussion about your own worries and concerns is greatly welcomed.
Please note that this workshop will take a human rights approach to discussing relationships for people with intellectual disability.
The Event Registration is taken in accordance with our Event Terms and Conditions.
