Who Should Attend: Anyone wishing to become more aware of issues faced by persons referred to as “sexual
minorities”. This heterogeneous population also includes persons with gender identity differences.
Course Description: In this seminar, we examine the effects of language, culture, and power dynamics on the developing
personhood of those who carry the labels represented in LGBTQ/SOGIE. We will also examine our own biases, values and
thinking, conditioned by our own upbringing, acculturation, and knowledge. Our focus will be on ways to become more truly
welcoming and affirming to all persons who differ from us and learn from them how to be helpful as a part of a healing
community of support. There will be an emphasis on affirming service for people who are transgender.
How to Apply: See registration form below.
*A $35.00 fee will be charged for professional continuing education credits.*
