Nice to Meet Me | 2020

nice to meet me Aspergers

The group-based education program for people with Asperger’s Syndrome based on Isebelle Hénault’s The Sociosexual Education Program.

NEXT COURSE STARTS 6 AUGUST 2020

People with Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) have the same sexual interests, issues and diversity as occur in the general population. However, adolescents and adults with AS are different in terms of the ability to ‘read’ and understand the subtle and complex thoughts and emotions of another person and to effectively communicate their own inner thoughts and feeling

Nice to meet is designed for people living with AS to improve the quality of their life and their intimate relationships.

The program focuses on:

  • Identifying and understanding one’s emotions and the emotions of others
  • Identifying values with respect to love, friendship and sexuality
  • Understanding and applying the concept of consent
  • Appropriate behaviours for private and public places
  • Understanding of various aspects of sexual relations
  • Improving communication skills

The program includes five two hour group sessions, plus two individual sessions by appointment.
