Resources for LGBTQIA+ Communities & Allies
It’s June and that means it’s Pride Month!
So, Jess Fletcher, one of our teachers here at Arizona Trauma Institute, has compiled many resources to support your growth and understanding of the LGBTQIA+ Community.
- Discuss trauma genesis and review the impact that the trauma of, microaggressions, discrimination, and systemic heterosexism, and cissexism have on the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of LGBTQIA+ individuals.
- Look at how unintended bias affects the LGBTQIA community as well as examine how medical and mental healthcare have historically been significant sources of trauma.
- Enhance your awareness of privilege and gain tools to monitor heteronormativity and cisnormativity.
