A dynamic and diverse panel of LGBTQ+ allies, practitioners, and members of the community will untangle and explore the complexities of accessing and providing LGBTQ+ affirming care in a lively and exploratory moderated discussion. With the overarching goal of improving attendees’ awareness of the unique experiences the LGBTQ+ community encounters when seeking out medical or behavioral health care, this panel discussion will incorporate panel members’ firsthand experiences as patients, providers, and activists. While sharply focusing on delivery of LGBTQ+ affirmative care, the panel will address how to effectively build trust and safety with LGBTQ+ clients, improve continued client engagement in treatment, and practically apply knowledge of risk factors and health disparities that LGBTQ+ individuals face. Attendees will deepen their knowledge and understanding of the importance of LGBTQ+ affirmative care, and how to lead with inclusivity.
Participants will engage in a virtual experiential workshop that includes a research-based explanation of the neurobiological implications of using expressive therapies. Through hands-on demonstrations of play activities using video and live activities, participants will immediately be able to incorporate these methods into their practice. Presenters will provide information about the neuroscience behind how play and movement can help heal children 'from the bottom up' in regards to brain development.
