When the Political Becomes Personal: Discussing LGBTQ+ Issues and Politics in Therapy
September 11 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
The LGBTQ Center and the Graduate School’s Diversity & Student Success Program present the first even in our 2017-2018 Graduate Speaker Series: “When the Political Becomes Personal: Discussing LGBTQ+ Issues and Politics in Therapy.” The event will be presented by Kimberly Pentel, M.A., Doctoral Student in Clinical Psychology.
Following the contentious 2016 U.S. presidential election, the nation has engaged in emotion-laden discourse around LGBTQ-related issues and legislation. This talk considers who these events impact mental health practice and reverberate in the private lives of therapy clients, trainees, and supervisors, especially:
- how trainee clinicians and faculty supervisors might navigate diversity-related issues and identities in a clinical and research context
- how faculty and students can be proactive and effective in discussing such topics in general.
Bring your own lunch. Dessert and drinks will be served.
