Go deeper into your work.
This Salon will support your work as a therapist through discussion and case feedback that highlights an affirmative and comprehensive consideration of gender roles and norms, race, culture, and class, as pieces of the puzzle we call identity.

Implications go beyond queer clients to broader understanding of family systems, relationships, and personal identity and development.

What will you learn?

Deepening ways of being and working  with LGBTQ clients and family systems, utilizing your theoretical orientation with an affirmative approach.

Developing changes in the socio-political landscape, the equality movement, and the shifting landscape of affirmative therapy.

Resources, referrals, and networking with quality therapists.
