Prejudices That Impact LGBTQ+ People

2022-11-21 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

This webinar is designed for social workers who are providing front line services, mental health care, and performing the controlled act of psychotherapy in Ontario. It utilizes a creative approach and provides tools to help social workers think about the impact of prejudices targeting LGBTQ+ communities when seeking mental health services. The webinar will provide an overview of socially constructed prejudices impacting the lives of clients who identify as members of LGBTQ+ communities with the hope of reducing, preventing and repairing harm in the social work relationship. We particularly emphasize testimonies from members of LGBTQ+ communities at multiple intersections as examples of the dynamics of power, privilege and oppression that can occur when working with clients. The goal is to provide strategies to prevent and repair systemic harm that may happen when working with LGBTQ+ people.
