As stated by the Standards for Sexuality Education in Europe, the objective of sex education is to encourage the acquisition of a state of psychosexual well-being by an individual. Sex education means learning about the biological, cognitive, psychological, emotional, relational and social aspects of sexuality.
In designing an intervention of sex education aimed at people with disabilities, first is necessary to identify the general themes to be proposed, making use of the Standards for Sexuality Education in Europe published in 2010 by WHO Regional Office for Europe and BzgA. This source, drawn up in the form of a consensus document by a group of international experts representing different areas, lists the indispensable topics of sex education, to be used as guidelines in any sex education intervention and to be deepened according to the levels of age.
Sexuality is never a special need, but it is a component of the path of development and it is a dimension of growth that dynamizes the interior life by activating the sphere of affections, relationships and projects. Sexuality is a daily and natural reality, which as such should be considered a “normal” educational need to recognize and affirm the legitimacy of the right to sexuality.
Like any other constitutive dimension of human nature, sexuality is a normal component of the path of life, but it is not always recognized and accepted.
When educational attention to sexuality is lacking, often considered a marginal aspect of the life of the individual and a residual area in educational planning, the course of adulthood risks failing, excluding a legitimate search for personal psychosexual well-being.
In day 5, we will share real critical cases and situation in order to find together possible answer and intervention in order to give resources and personal contracts.
The presupposition of the training is that sexuality is a right-need of all individuals, as a constitutive dimension of human existence and a component of growth that accompanies all individuals in the same way.
The target group of the training includes professional who are operating daily with people with disability (educators, social workers, caregivers etc.), and also the all other adult people living with people with disabilities (mainly tutors and families of the people living with disabilities).
