Abstract

This article describes the process of sexual counseling with a developmentally disabled couple, illustrating principles and techniques that were unique to this couple's concern. The author asserts that this aspect of a marital relationship should not be denied a couple simply because they are handicapped. Her intent is to help nurses understand some of the issues involved in sexual counseling with developmentally disabled persons, and to motivate nurses to help those who may express concerns.
