2019 SCI Conference “Connections: Sexuality & Relationships After Spinal Cord Injury

Session 5 – Family Life a panel discussion
Hear stories and real-world advice from people with SCI about having children biologically or through adoption, parenting, and fulfilling other important family roles after SCI.

Join us to learn more about intimacy, sex, dating, long-term relationships, parenting and family life.

Spinal cord injury is life-changing. Much of the focus of rehabilitation care is on the medical and functional aspects of life with SCI, with less attention paid to the profound effects that SCI has on the dynamics of one’s relationships.

This conference is hosted by the Northern New Jersey Spinal Cord Injury System (NNJSCIS), a collaborative effort of Kessler Foundation (http://kesslerfoundation.org), Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation (https://www.kessler-rehab.com), and University Hospital (http://www.uhnj.org). NNJSCIS is supported by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR grant number 90SI5026). NIDILRR is a Center within the Administration for Community Living (ACL), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
