MindOUT Webinar - Affirmation in Action: A Conversation about LGBTIQ+Affirmative Practice

Affirmative Practice is a term we hear about increasingly in our work with diverse populations.

In this webinar, Chris Pye facilitates a conversation about what this means in relation to LGBTIQ+ populations, what the literature says and how this can manifest in our daily practice.
