Sexual and Emotional Relationships

It’s never easy for a parent of a child with an intellectual disability to face the issue of their child’s sexuality. The many aspects to be considered, as well as the parent’s own doubts, tend to become mixed up with the adult child’s entirely legitimate desire for freedom. Over the course of three meetings we will address several topics related to this theme. The different experiences of the group’s participants will lead us to further lines of thought.

The discussions will be led by Annabelle Caron, coordinator of the Centre de santé des femmes de Montréal (Montréal Women’s Health Centre). Madame Caron was a speaker last November during the day-long seminar, organized by AQIS, on countering sexual abuse and violence.
