A Deeper Dive into Working with the Rainbow Communities – 6 CE-Credits

November 15 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm MST

This is an in-person workshop. The exact location will be released two weeks before the event. 

Abstract

An ever-evolving group of communities, the 2SLGBTQ+ individuals, couples and families have become more of our therapeutic and political focus over the years. There is more research now than ever before about this group of people and their needs, and yet there is much that is not yet known about them. We as therapists will encounter people who identify themselves as belonging to some part or parts of the queer communities and so need to educate ourselves on how best to serve them. This presentation, which continues on from the Lunch and Learn that was presented on February 22nd, will be a deeper look into working with these communities.

Learning Objectives

  • To review who comes under the Rainbow of these communities.
  • To underpin your work with these communities with the impact of their history of discrimination and abuse.
  • To understand these communities’ unique issues and how you can incorporate these into your practice.
  • To evaluate your potential biases and develop changes to make more space for these communities.

Intended Audience

This presentation is for mental health professionals who wish to have a deeper understanding of who the 2SLGBTQ+ communities are and their unique issues so that their services can be more meaningful and accessible to these clients.
