Ask the Expert with Katie Pedgrift-Teaching Social-Sexual Education to People with Developmental Disabilities: A Teaching Tool for Providers
Presented by Dr. Katie Pedgrift, Licensed Clinical Psychologist at North Bay Regional Center and Creator of Relationships Decoded
Through funding from the Mental Health Services Act and in partnership with the Department of Developmental Services, North Bay Regional Center has developed an education program that is designed to teach people with developmental disabilities how to build healthy and meaningful relationships while also giving them information about sexual abuse and coercion. This course will detail how the program uses evidence-based teaching practices with the overall objective to reduce risk factors associated with sexual abuse and increase protective factors associated with prosocial behavior. The program will be free and accessible to interested providers beginning in July of 2020.
Participants will be able to ask specific questions before and during the interactive session.
