Sexuality and Gender Awareness

The event:

How do I work with clients who identify as LGBTQ+? What difficulties might members of the LGBTQ+ community have faced? What’s the key information I need to know about working with these groups?

If these are questions you ask yourself this workshop is for you. An opportunity to top up your training on an important and underdiscussed topic.

After decades of laws and stigmas that prevented people from being their true selves’ people are now able to embrace their true identities. However, there is still a lot of confusion and stigma in society and within the therapy room about people and their differences. It’s now more important than ever for professionals to keep up to date with changing trends, terminology and general knowledge. This CPD workshop will be ideal for Counsellors, Therapists, professionals and business owners looking to expand their knowledge on this complex and important topic.
