"Small world, isn't it?" Multiple Relationships in Small Communities & Subcultures

When:  May 10, 2019 from 03:00 PM to 04:30 PM (ET)
Therapists who identify as LGBTQ, religious or ethnic minorities, or as members of other subcultures, and those working in small communities like the military or schools, may experience conflict between serving community members,and participating in community themselves. This workshop will present a new conversation about considerations for ethically managing multiple relationships while providing culturally-competent therapy in small communities and subcultures.

Our Presenter for this Webinar is: Dr. Sheila Addison
Raised by a feminist single mother in the Midwest, Dr. Sheila Addison, LMFT was taught early on that women deserve equal opportunities. In her training as a Marriage and Family Therapist, Dr. Addison expanded her perspective on social justice to include intersections of gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, weight, and more. She earned her Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Syracuse University where she developed and co-taught one of the first academic courses covering LGBT issues in family therapy. Currently, she heads Margin to Center Consulting which encompasses her private practice and supervision, and cultural competency trainings for mental health professionals. She provides diversity and inclusion support, including the Ally Skills Workshop, to corporate, academic, and community clients. She resides in Oakland, California where her private practice, focused on couples and relationships, is also located. In 2018 she was named "Best Psychotherapist in the East Bay" by the East Bay Express.
