The workshop will explore the importance of understanding intersectionality both for ourselves, and when working with our clients. By the end of it, participants will have explored why Intersectional perspectives are important, will have had time to process some of the feelings around this using image making as a medium for self-reflection.

Dance/Movement - Sissy Lykou
The workshop reframes therapy thinking concerning acceptance and unconditional positive regard in terms of what it can contribute to real world politics. And the opposite is also true: we will see how society’s struggles over inclusion and exclusion illuminate all aspects of work in the helping professions.
