What's coming?

New live and asynchronous courses will come out through the year. If you have something else you'd really like to see, let us know! 

- What is our scope?

- How does communication impact consent, sexual satisfaction, and relationship satisfaction?

- Why are we needed in this space?

- How can we help children have a healthy relationship with their  body, consent, and autonomy?

- What is typical sexual development, and how do we discuss it in an age-appropriate manner?

- How do we talk to children about pragmatically-appropriate sexual and body-based behavior without shaming them, making them uncomfortable about sex, and making them less likely to talk to a trusted adult in the future about sex/intimacy?

- People with developmental disabilities are at a higher risk for sexual assault than the general population. How can we give them the language they need to advocate for themselves?

- How do we help kids access sex education and anatomy curricula? 

- If you work with adolescents, they may mention relationships and intimacy with you. How do you respond in a way that isn't shaming?

- How do we identify red flags for sex and intimacy safety concerns, coercion, and assault?

- Pragmatics is part of our scope, and relationships, intimacy, and sex are all steeped in pragmatic nuance. How do we help our students navigate those murky waters? Do we?

- Our neurodivergent clients may be experience tricky hormonal or sexual developmental changes that impact behavior. It can be difficult to tease out the root cause. It's helpful to know about sexual development here too.  

- How do we open a dialogue with our clients that allows them to feel comfortable discussing intimate subjects?

  • - How do we give people with communication disorders the language they need to advocate for their sexual wants/needs in general?

  • - How do we navigate consent when a person has difficulty verbalizing?

  • - How do we help clients navigate the power dynamics of an intimate interpersonal relationship nonverbally or with communication difficulties?

  • - How do we address AAC use in a way that doesn't gatekeep romance, intimacy, and sex? In a way that allows for express consent?

  • - Voice and speech are attractors. How do we help our clients when they use an AAC device, have difficulty initiating speech, or want their voice to sound "sexier"?

  • - Online dating, sexting, and online written communication to sex workers, like OnlyFans performers, is a thing. Do we help our clients find ways to create this written communication? If they are interested in this type of communication, how do we help them navigate those waters?

  • - How do we help ourselves be nonjudgmental and supportive when our clients bring up a sexual topic that is different from our own experiences/interests/desires/concepts of morality?

  • - How do we help our clients when they bring up trauma in general, but more specifically sexual trauma, sexual abuse or assault, etc. How do we help ourselves as possible trauma survivors when we get in to difficult discussions?

  • - How do different diagnoses often impact sex and communication? (Stroke, aphasia, TBI, etc.)

  • - Swallowing disorders and feeding tubes affect sexuality. 

  • - Head and neck cancer, xerostomia, breathing changes, can all affect kissing and sexuality. 

  • - Medical trauma, medical treatments, and medications each have impact on sexuality, desire, and pleasure. When our clients have multiple comorbidities, can we help our clients navigate that? Can we help our clients navigate those conversations with their partners and medical providers?
