The focus of this session is on developing a thorough understanding of language, pronouns, and concepts related to gender and sexual diversity in order to create an affirming and safe space for clients from the first interaction. Participants explore the impact of multiple oppressed identities, our own privilege and bias, as well as develop skills for supporting clients through decisions about coming out and medical interventions. Listen to this session ready to engage around complex, fluid, and sometimes paradoxical aspects of identity and sexuality.
Contact hours available until 10/16/19.
