It's About All of Us: Sex and Disability for Sexuality Professionals. Shauna Farabaugh
Our field has worked hard to be inclusive of all genders and sexualities and to be trauma-informed. Let's work together to make it disability-informed as well!" Shauna Farabaugh is a sex educator who's passionate about educating other sex educators to make our field accessible to all bodies. This talk is an intro to some foundational concepts to support that.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES. At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
describe their own relationship to the concept of sex and disability
recognize some of the ways disability history and current cultural beliefs about disability live in their bodies and impede their effectiveness as practitioners (But once we recognize them, somatic awareness gives us choice!)
explain why sex and disability is about all of us
compare the medical model to the social model of disability and person-first language to identity-first language
discuss the concept of Sexuality Access Professional and how it may be expressed in their practice
think more flexibly about what tools work for who and when and how
name three considerations when evaluating the physical accessibility of office or event space
cite at least one resource available to continue learning about sex and disability
