College of Counselling: DV in LGBTIQ communities -Recording
What’s Important to know about working with DV/FV in the LGBTIQ community
Presented by Anthony Lekkas
with a discussion panel : Don Secomb, Trish Thompson and Kieran O'Loughlan
The College of Counselling will be exploring Power and Control in a series titled: What all counsellors need to know about domestic & family violence
In this interactive presentation, Anthony Lekkas, who is a social worker, counsellor and LGBTIQ family violence specialist, will look at how society shapes the way love and intimacy can happen for LGBTIQ people in intimate relationships, as well as how abuse occurs and its impact for LGBTIQ people. Anthony will look closely at individual client abuse experiences as well as examine how heterosexism and homophobia impact on issues of safety and risk for LGBTIQ people who may want to access support from a therapist. This presentation will emphasise that providing an LGBTIQ inclusive service is critical to understanding the diversity that exists in the lives of LGBTIQ people who access mainstream therapeutic services.
This webinar is for all counsellors who wish to broaden their LGBTIQ lens and understand the nuances, specific needs, do's and don'ts, and challenge myths around Domestic and Family violence.
