SoSAFE! User Training – April 2020
April 3, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
SoSAFE! provides teachers, counsellors and other professionals with simple visual tools to enhance the training of social, socio-sexual and social safety skills. The explicit, rule based format allows the learner to respond to situations, including intimate relationships, without having to make discretionary decisions, in response to their feelings or ‘early warning signs’.
Social safety training is essential for people with moderate to severe intellectual disability and/or autism spectrum disorder because of their vulnerability to physical and sexual abuse. The SoSAFE! program is a set of visual and conceptual tools specifically designed to meet this need.
The SoSAFE! program uses a standardised framework of concepts, symbols and visual lesson materials to teach the type and degree of communicative and physical intimacy appropriate with different groups of people in an individual’s life. The program also teaches strategies for moving into intimate relationships in a safe and measured manner.
People 1st Programme is licenced to deliver SoSAFE! Training.
