Day 1 For Professional and those working in relevant fields.

In recent years there have been some important developments in enhancing equality for people who identify as LGBTQ+. Ireland historically accepted marriage for samesex couples. This is not universal and while legislation and opportunities may have changed, many people still face discrimination or worse. In our role as counsellors we are faced with our clients ever changing landscape. To be in a position to help and support our clients at each stage of their journey is vital.

This workshop will examine issues relating to sexual orientation and gender identity and will focus on areas that professionals can focus on in order to provide affirmative support. We will examine issues and cultural influences our clients may face. We will explore how Adlerian theory and practice can be helpful and look at some ways to promote self-encouragement.

Day 2 Open to everyone

There has been historic recognition of the validity of same -sex relationships. However, there are many ways in which members of society who identify as LGBTQ+ may feel uncertain about being open about their own identity – at home, in the workplace or in wider society. The passing of anti-discriminatory legislation does not stop or prevent discrimination from happening. Living with guilt and shame can be exhausting and lead to physical and mental wellbeing issues.

During this workshop we will look at challenges that people still face and how support can be offered to them as well as their families, friends and colleagues.
