Law Enforcement and Social Service Agencies struggle to balance the safety of the community with the sexual needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. People with disabilities are particularly vulnerable to inappropriate sexual activity as victims and suspects and many unique factors weigh into this equation. Dr. Beverly Frantz, Ed.D., will address these challenges, highlighting the concerns that must be addressed for the safety and welfare of individuals and the community when sex and sexuality intersect with the criminal justice system. This webinar will raise your awareness about inherent biases that adversely affect sexual choice for people with disabilities and offer an opportunity to think about the impact of these issues on people with disabilities while providing you with important, practical information.
