This event is part of a monthly continuing education series run by the Art Therapy Institute.
Join Meg Hamilton, MA, LPC and Cassie Hamrick, MAAT, LPCA for an art-based workshop focused on providing mental health services for LGBTQIA+ communities in the Triangle. Discussion will include an introduction to diversity in gender and sexuality, an overview of gender affirming approaches to care, and a summary of the local landscape of care for LGBTQIA+ communities. Participants will leave with a better understanding of LGBTQIA+ dynamics and needs, as well as resources for providing affirming support.
ATI is an NBCC provider, and continuing education credits are available for mental health professionals for a small fee. All ticket fees are used to pay for NBCC membership dues, presenter fees, art materials, and ATI mental health programming for local underserved and uninsured populations.
