Beyond a Safe Space: Creating True Affirming Care for LGBTQIA2P+ Young People
March 15, 2019
In-person location: St George, UT
This will be a workshop dedicated to learning the intricacies that go into LGBTQIA2P+ clinical practice. This workshop will combine lecture, experiential, and collaborative work surrounding the need to address trauma in LGBTQ+ communities. It will shed the umbrella of LGBTQIA2P+ in order to look at specific traumas of the individual communities as individual subcultures. Starting with a short overview and refreshment of terminology, the course will create a path of understanding and exploring dialogue, struggles and celebrations in LGBTQIA2P+ communities. Participants will engage in dialogue, experiential work, and collaborative efforts in order to best serve their young clients in regards to sexuality and gender.
