ABOUT THE LECTURE

People can get lost in all the terminology of the LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and others) communities. This can cause therapists to be afraid of “saying the wrong thing” and accidentally offending a client. Through introducing therapists to the Spectrums Model of Sex, Gender, and Sexuality, the presentation will help clinicians learn about the differences between sex, core gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, sexual identity, and sexual behavior. In addition, we will explore how internalized homo/bi/transphobia, misogyny, and racism play out within these realms. This presentation will help clinicians understand the vocabulary, deconstruct and demystify the language and terminology, and gain understanding of the essentialist and socially constructed aspects of identity. They can also ask questions that they may have been afraid to ask!

For many years, Network & Nosh event has been extremely popular and well-attended. We attempt to connect activists, organizers and service providers who work in various disciplines (SUD, mental health, HIV, incarceration/re-entry, community planning, social justice, education, and housing to name a few) with one another to learn about what services are available to our clients and to the community. Everyone who wants to has an opportunity to speak at the podium for a few minutes (usually 3-5 minutes) and then people network – so bring your business cards and brochures. We also have a resource fair set up, so if you have agency/program/event literature you wish to share, reserve a table – or part of one.

And we chat, eat, interact……
