Keep Safe Training
15 November 2018
Participants and trainers (Ro Rossiter, Tizard Centre, Stephen Barry and Victoria Jones, Be Safe Service Bristol) at the recent Keep Safe training in London. Keep Safe, an intervention for males aged 12-25 with learning disabilities who have displayed problematic or harmful sexual behaviours, was developed and feasibility trialled through a Tizard based project.
Thanks to Claire Bates and Choice Support for welcoming us. Amazingly, one of their receptionists – also in photo – was one of the characters in the well-known, and still used, sex and relationships video “My Choice, My Own Choice”.
There are a few places left on the next Keep Safe training 22/23 November 2018 in Glasgow organised by NOTA Scotland- see https://www.cycj.org.uk/event/nota-scotland-keep-safe-intervention-for-young-people-with-learning-disabilities-who-display-harmful-sexual-behaviours-and-their-parents-carers/
