This one day course will explore a range of issues related to autistic people and sexuality including boundaries, friendships and relationships. It will enable delegates to increase their understanding of how friendships and relationships can be nurtured and supported in the autistic person and how to enable the autistic person to understand that the friendship might or might not develop and what to do about both eventualities.
The course will develop the notion of the ‘listening professional’ in order to generate strategies to answer questions, respond to behaviours, and address sexuality in an appropriate and effective way for autistic people.
