Queer Talks Part Nine
Queer Talks with Parents with Lindsay Camp, LMFT
Discussing queer topics with parents can be challenging for multiple different reasons including parents being unaccepting and/or not having sufficient queer knowledge such as gender, orientation, and sex to name just a few. It's imperative parents and families understand the importance of queer youth having a safe and supportive household. In this session, Lindsay Camp, LMFT of Austin Teen Therapy, and Ryan Dillon, LPC of The Open Book Chat will discuss common issues that have come up in their time working with queer youth and their families.
At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:
- Have greater knowledge of common parental issues when discussing queer topics
- Understand statistics and language around unsupportive households to provide to parents
- How to discuss the use of microaggressions and their harm
