About the Workshop
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people of color (POC) experience elevated vulnerability to oppression based on their exposure to racism and cis-heterosexism, which contributes to unique mental health and substance misuse concerns. Using an intersectional framework, this 3-hour webinar led by Dr. Sara Matsuzaka (bio) is designed to provide participants with strategies for culturally sensitive clinical practice with LGBTQ+ POC with mental health and/or substance misuse concerns. Participants will be invited to explore how their own social positioning relates to dynamics of power and oppression within practice—an integral step to building an anti-racist, anti-cisheterosexist, and anti-oppressive practice.
