Positive Approaches Journal: Volume 10 Now Available

Positive Approaches Journal - Volume 10 - Issue 1 - May 2021The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) and the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) are pleased to announce that the latest edition of the Positive Approaches Journal is now available. Positive Approaches Volume 10, Issue 1 focuses on sexuality and social connectedness. 

Factors like high rates of abuse, neglect, sexual assault, domestic violence, coupled with the need to develop healthy relationships impress the importance to educate and support individuals in the areas of healthy relationships and sexuality. The articles in this second edition of Sexuality and Social Connectedness aim to further explore gender roles, definitions, and education and their impact on those with disabilities. By enhancing our understanding of these areas through appropriate supports and education, we hope we can help to build a community with meaningful and healthy connections, foster healthy sexuality, and continue to move towards best practices for the individuals we support and serve.
