LBQ women's kinship, family formation and parent - Recording
LBQ women form and find chosen families in innovative ways that reimagine family. This often helps them overcome marginalisation through entering the mainstream parenting community but can also create challenges for them as ground breakers. Ruth will discuss her personal, clinical and research-based insights into this dichotomy and how-to best support LBQ kinship as a health professional.
The focus of this webinar will be on LBQ women, including some LBQ women who also have trans and/or intersex lived experiences
For PACFA Registrants, the webinar counts as 2 hours of Category A CPD (Continuing Professional Development)
