Sexuality and Disability
Developing and maintaining a healthy sense of self-esteem can be challenging for individuals with disabilities. This is because people with disabilities may be faced with a unique range of challenges associated with having a disability, such as negative messages, low expectations, reduced opportunities and outright discrimination. In an attempt to bridge the knowledge gap and offer an applicable intervention, Drs. Hagiliassis and Gulbenkoglu, have created a group training package to improve self-esteem for adults with disabilities.
