Asking the right questions: Parent and professional perspectives on sexuality

Written Material
Download

This article describes how parents frequently experience discussions with professionals about the sexuality of their adult children as a battle over control that they will eventually lose. Parents often feel that if they disagree with the practices of adult service systems, their son or daughter may well be excluded. The authors suggest that parents have a legitimate perspective which needs to be appreciated within the context of an inevitable power struggle with the service sector, and is a perspective which needs to be considered more seriously.
