Preparing for “The Talk”: Ways to Get Ready to Talk About Sexuality, Relationships, and Identity
April 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The landscape of dating, relationships, and sexuality changes rapidly — and for those of us providing support or guidance in these areas, knowing where to begin can be daunting. Join Dr. Crehan, a licensed clinical psychologist and autism researcher, to build your comfort with discussing sexuality and relationship topics and to hear about current research. She will identify comfort zones for dating, relationships, and sexuality to promote positive, self-directed outcomes for autistic individuals. She will also use a positive framework to think about goals for attendee’s learning and share resources for additional learning.
Presented by Eileen Crehan, Ph.D.

Her research lab at Tufts University focuses on improving access to care using methods developed in collaboration with autistic individuals.
