Training Peer Educator-Counselors in Sexuality and Disability.
Bullard, David G.; And Others
In October 1976, under a grant from NIMH to the Human Sexuality Program, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco, the Sex and Disability Training Project began training physically disabled and nondisabled persons as sociosexual educator-counselors for persons with disabilities, their intimates and families, and health care providers. The year-long training (1,000 hours/20 hours per week) included didactic and supervised field placement experience. Evaluational data, including those obtained from field placement supervisors, indicated that the 28 professionals and paraprofessionals completing the training over the three years of the project were effectively utilized to deliver a variety of services in both habilitation and rehabilitation settings.
