Webinar: Getting and Giving Consent — For People with Autism
Getting and Giving Consent: For People with Autism
Presented by: Katherine McLaughlin, M.Ed., AASECT Certified Sexuality Educator
How do we know that someone wants to do something with us? How do we make sure we are clear about what we want? Whether it is being in a person’s company or being sexual with another person, it takes both people to communicate clearly and to listen to the response. In this workshop, Katherine McLaughlin will explore what consent means, how to give consent, how to get consent, and ways to manage rejection when we ask for consent.
