At the Crossroads:
Helping Patients Explore Race, Gender, & Sexuality
Individuals who experience oppression in multiple areas of their lives are seeking providers who understand the ways that systems and individual biases affect daily life. This workshop enhances our knowledge and awareness of various ways that multiply marginalized people can experience being in the world. This understanding increases our ability to see our clients in context, and allows us to come alongside them in healing and building resilience.
Workshop Level: Beginner to Intermediate
Identify at least three (3) gender identities and three (3) other identities an LGBTQ+ person can hold that increase marginalization.
Analyze the ways that race, religion, sexuality, ability, size, gender identity, citizenship status, etc. can affect daily life due to systematic oppression and individual prejudice.
Evaluate research related to the impact of prejudice, discrimination, and/or oppression on clients.
Analyze at least one culturally relevant healing practice or strategy to offer clients using an affirming, anti-oppression framework.
