Sexual Self-Efficacy as Political Power: Through the Lens of Teaching in a Disability Culture
Description: In this country, the taboo against acknowledging one's awareness of their "erotic" may be universal. For individuals with intellectual disabilities, however, it has become an almost insurmountable obstacle to conceiving they are entitled to not only sexual pleasure and intimate connection but to self-advocacy and a place in the public forum. This workshop aims to illuminate how a short course moved students and teachers alike to claim the integral connection between sexual self-efficacy and political self advocacy.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: explain the overlap of sexual self-efficacy and self-advocacy opposing ableism, racism, classism and other colonizations of bodies; demonstrate at least four skills needed to work with individuals and populations whose sexual and gender expression have been forbidden.
