About this event:
Understandably, disability and difference evoke complicated things for all of us, some of it visible, some of it hidden. As Brian Watermeyer says: “we all struggle with the cultural phenomenon of disability… This shouldn’t surprise us and is no cause for shame.”
Unique from many diversity groups, we can all become disabled at any point in our lives. For this very reason, I invite you to join me on this very short excursion into disability. In order to provide more affirming therapy and support to all our disabled clients, we need a non-judgemental space where we as therapists can explore and learn and grow. I would like to offer you this space. This training offers you the opportunity to both grow personally in your relationship to disability and difference, as well as in our professional lives improving the support we offer disabled clients and their families.
At the end of the talk there will be an opportunity to ask questions as well as links to resources for further reading and development.
