Q-Con: The Road Less Travelled
September 15, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
About this event
This is a two-hour workshop where participants will be introduced to Identity Based Trauma (IBT) as it relates to the LGBTI+ community. The facilitator Anne Marie Toole, supported by a second psychologist and staff from LGBTI+ community groups, will talk us through the mechanics of IBT -, how it originates, what it feels like and how do we make sense of its relation to self-esteem, social anxiety and our attachment styles and relationship patterns.
The workshop will explore the social and cultural structures that inform IBT and the internalisation of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. She will also help participants to become more aware of when trauma is activated, guide the group though understanding how the nervous system works and explore how to reconnect with our determined organic and authentic selves .
