Upcoming Queering Therapy Workshops
Understanding sexual and gender diversity adds strength to your practice. When we explore diversity we also explore the unspoken social scripts and mores about sex and gender. In this workshop you will be introduced to issues faced by sexual and gender diverse clients and best-practice examples of working with these population groups. You will also explore how to make your practice diverse-friendly.
This one-day workshop brings together recent research and literature on gender and sexual diversity from a multi-disciplinary perspective. It introduces participants to key concepts, issues with coming out, recent research on homophobia and mental health issues faced by non-heterosexual identified individuals. Participants will also explore the application of practice standards to enhance their practice (and practices) to become more diverse-friendly.
At the conclusion of this workshop participants will:
- Understand sexual and gender diversity;
- Articulate the impact of heteronormativity on the mental and physical health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ people;
- Identify the stages of coming out;
- Locate the self in diverse-friendly practice; and
- Generate a diverse-friendly practice plan
