SACAP The Practice Dialogue | Supporting clients and their family members when someone "comes out"
LGBTQ people, in their own resilient ways, often find their way to needed information, resources, answers to burning questions, and community. After LGBTQ people ‘come out’ to their family members, there are often many questions that surface and family members find themselves in places of isolation.

International visiting scholar, Rahim Thawer, intends to alleviate the burden of educating others that LGBTQ people often face and reduce the isolation family members often contend with by answering common questions family members ask when someone ‘comes out’.

Join our final webinar of The Practice Dialogue Workshop Series with Rahim Thawer and SACAP’s Social Work and Community Development Faculty for an informative and interactive conversation around common questions family members may ask. RSVP here to join us on 12 May 2022 from 18:00.

May 12, 2022 06:00 PM in Johannesburg
