Getting started and the four pillars

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 LGBTQ+ communities.

It’s now more important than ever for professionals to keep up to date with changing trends, terminology, general knowledge and things to consider when offering counselling and psychotherapy to LGBTQ+ clients.

This CPD workshop will be ideal for counsellors, therapists and mental health professionals looking to expand their knowledge on this complex and important topic.

What’s included?

  • Detailed explanation on different sexuality and gender identities.
  • A discussion on sexuality around the world.
  • Exploration of Toms 'Four pillars of LGBTQIA+ Therapy', discussing four key things for therapists to be aware of when working with LGBTQ+ clients. These are:
    1. The wider context
    2. Shame
    3. Rage
    4. Internalised phobias

This is a two and a half hour online CPD workshop and will include interactive group work, breakout rooms and a short comfort break.

To enable this workshop to be fully accessible there are three pricing options. There is a limit of 14 tickets ensuring the group remains small, allowing participants to feel involved.
