The programme will combine presentations, experiential and collaborative work, where the focus will be on peering beneath the umbrella of the “LGBTQ+ label”, looking instead at specific traumas and complexities, specifically for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer communities as individual subcultures.
The expectation of this unique workshop is to create a safe space where all stigma is left at the door. An environment where the unsaid can be expressed without judgement and lead to a healthy conversation driven by the understanding that many of us, regardless of culture, gender, or nationality may have experienced relational trauma issues.
This will enable professionals to leave better prepared to ethically and empathetically engage with their clients needs.
We will also provide an information area where professionals can exchange and obtain knowledge about one another in order to facilitate a seamless continuum of care with new data as to where and how to signpost and refer their clients.
