Communication in Dating and Relationships after Spinal Cord Injury
The SCI Forum "Communication in Dating and Relationships after Spinal Cord Injury" is now available as streaming video. This forum took place on February 9, 2010 at the University of Washington Medical Center. Does a spinal cord injury change the importance or nature of communication in a relationship? Most people you meet may know little or nothing about SCI. Does it make you wonder whether you can meet new people, get out and date, and have long term relationships? How can you put people at ease so they can feel comfortable asking all those questions they are probably thinking about, and how can you be at ease answering them? When and how do you start talking about the physical side of SCI, such as bowel, bladder and sexual function? In this forum video, our "expert" panel of single, dating and married individuals with SCI share their experiences with post-injury dating and relationships.
