Cultural Implications for Best Practices Within the LGBTQ+ Community
Are you interested in learning about how art plays a role in understanding sexual identity formation? Do you want to gain more awareness around cultural competencies related to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer plus (LGBTQ+) community? Are you curious about how to navigate the art therapy research process?
This exciting workshop is intended for both novice and experienced art therapists, as well as for allied health professionals who provide psychotherapy services to LGBTQ+ clients. Workshop topics include: a brief history of the LGBTQ+ community and the role of the therapist, the identity of the art therapy researcher, and an exploration of art therapy research with LGBTQ+ identified individuals. Missy will discuss her recent art therapy research with lesbian-identified women as well as introduce core tenets of the Kaleidoscope Art Therapy curriculum. The workshop will include art making and a group research experiential. The goal of this workshop is to add to participants’ existing breadth of knowledge of the LGBTQ+ community in art therapy practice as well as encourage self-awareness through a cultural humility lens.
