Queer Talks Part Two

Immigrant Experience X Queerness with Melody Li, LMFT


Overview:

Immigrants of Color and children of immigrants of Color are constantly straddling multi-cultures. Navigating White spaces facing challenges such as language barriers, microaggressions, and prejudice is stressful enough. To that, add the queerness layer and everything from identity development to relationships become that much more complex. This webinar will both celebrate the strengths of queer immigrants of Color, and hold space for their pains. Participants will learn how colonization and colonized mental health care harms queer immigrants of Color, and discuss ways to reduce harm. You will learn to begin to view intersectional oppression from historical, intergenerational, and systemic lenses. Together, let’s learn ways to support queer immigrants of Color, their families, and communities. 

Objectives for CEUs:

​At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  1. Identify minority stresses unique to queer immigrants of Color and queer children of immigrants of Color.
  2. Explain the difference between historical, intergenerational, and systemic intersectional trauma.
  3. Develop ways to advocate for queer immigrants of Color, their families, and communities.


Meet The Speaker

Melody Li (she/ 她) is a queer colony-born immigrant, therapist of Color, and mental health justice activist. Her mission is to disrupt, deconstruct, and decolonize the mental health field.

With "Embracing Diversity" as the mission, she co-founded Austin Counseling Collective, a boldly inclusive community where she practices.

 

Melody also co-leads the Austin Therapists of Color community, and offers professional care focusing on decolonizing mental health care and healing racial trauma.
