How can we support neurodivergent LGBTQA+ people in our society?
Come and join us for this online event to find out more.
The overlap between trans and autistic people is more commonly known about, however it is less widely discussed that there are a range of neurodiversity overlaps with the whole LGBTQA+ community and other differences as well, such as being left-handed or having hypermobile joints.
This webinar delivered via Zoom will explore the impacts of living at the intersections of neurodivergent and LGBTQA+ identities and gives delegates a framework for thinking about individuals and their experiences holistically rather than breaking them down into separate silos of identity, or looking for causation narratives.
We are delighted to welcome back Sam Hope (they/them) to deliver this session. Sam is a BACP-accredited therapist, supervisor and EDI trainer, and author of “Person-Centred Counselling for Trans and Gender Diverse People”. Using an interactive and engaging presentation style, Sam will focus on access and inclusion as well as potential mental health impacts and minority stress.
The event will also provide opportunities to discuss the themes being addressed and share experiences of how we work to improve students’ and colleagues’ understanding of the issues raised. So, why not come along and join us for this engaging and enlightening webinar.
