MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13
2:45 – 3:45 PM
HAWTHORNE What I Need to Know to Make Healthy Sexual & Social Choices
                 Acknowledging that one’s personal comfort level with their own sexuality is important in
                 working with others, especially those with intellectual and/or mental health challenges, and is
                 really the first step towards being an appropriate provider of services to this population of
                 individuals. No one would expect someone to go outside their own comfort or capabilities so it
                 is imperative to be honest & open about what you can & cannot do…and what you believe to be
                 true or not in this area of healthy sexuality and individuals with challenges.
                 Presenter: Barbara J. Thomas, Director of the Thomas Educational Consulting Services,
