Recognizing The Inner Voice: Breaking The LGBTQIA+ Conversation Barrier

The month of June is Pride Month and throughout the world the LGBTQIA+ communities come together to celebrate sexual and gender diversity, and to raise awareness of the ongoing pursuit for equality. NephU and PsychU will be joining the community awareness efforts. During this webinar, our speakers begin by sharing perspectives of coming out, identifying fears of self-disclosure, and using affirmative language to improve personal and professional interactions with LGBTQIA+ individuals.
