    Improving Services for LGBT+ Populations
    anya gwynne | PARN

    Date: April 11, 2019 | 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM EST

    Location:

    Peterborough Lions Community Centre | Sisson Room
    347 Burnham St.
    Peterborough, ON K9H 1T5

    Course Description:

    This course provides information for service providers to feel more confident, competent and comfortable providing services to people with diverse gender identities and expressions or whose sexual orientation may be different than the majority. Stigma and marginalization impact an individual’s health and well-being in many ways and affects whether that person will access services when they are in need of them. We want to help agencies to become more accessible, places of welcome for the communities we serve. We will use case studies and give concrete, evidence-based examples of ways to improve frontline service, documentation and policies. There will also be a focus on best practice services for trans and non-binary folks.

    Did you know that LGBT2-SIQA people are more highly represented as substance users? In this workshop, we will discuss factors that contribute to this, including how this group has been targeted by alcohol and tobacco companies as a demographic.

    Have you taken a course like this with anya before? In this session, we will be taking a more in-depth look at the issues with enhanced learning in a multidisciplinary setting.
