Sexual education starts with the development of the concept of sexuality in children and takes its final form during adolescence. Sexual education connected to culture, tradition, religion, law, economy, etc. also differs depending on the values and leads to the development of different understanding of sexuality.
Today, the physical integrity of people with disabilities is violated due to their mental disability and they are exposed to many abuses. Increasing news about sexual abuse of people with disabilities both in our country and in Europe proves that there is insufficient support in the field of sexual education. Mentally disabled people are silently able to accept a proposal for sexual intercourse or sexual convergence without knowing that they can be sexually exploited due to lack of judgment and evaluation. All of these leave disabled individuals defenseless and vulnerable. Through this training, youth workers will present a variety of approaches to improve the attitudes and behaviors of individuals with intellectual disabilities that can discuss sexuality, help them to be more comfortable and confident, and learn good practices in increasing individual capacities. In this respect, the main objective of the project is to increase the competence of youth workers in the field of sexual education of the disabled.
