    Workshop Description:  Queer youth and their families often face unique relational and social challenges.  Conventional understandings of identity and family, as well as traditional clinical approaches, can perpetuate challenges and lead to hope-less, dead-end conversations that fail to bring forward and leverage the courageous acts of resistance to oppressive conditions that often surround these youth and families.

    This experiential workshop will offer participants an opportunity to learn more about the needs and concerns of queer youth and their families.  Professional and cultural discourses that influence our ideas about gender and sexuality will be discussed, and the intersection of class, race, and ethnicity with gender and sexuality will also be considered

    We will examine queer issues through the use of experiential activities, critical readings of pop culture representations of queer youth and their families, and an examination of therapy transcripts.  Resources for a socially just practice with queer youth and their families will be introduced.

    Workshop Description: Through the lens of cultural studies methodologies, Julie will take an alternative look at pop culture’s influence on youth.  By making space for young clients to talk about their relationship with pop culture, Julie will demonstrate conversational practices that afford youth opportunities to engage in meaningful and critical ways with pop culture. The presentation will take a both/and look at pop culture, viewing it as a potential site for productive meaning making and identity development as well as a source of negative influence and reinforcement of limiting identity conclusions and consumer consumption.

    Presented for the MAMFT Sessions on Saturdays.

Let’s Start a Conversation

Believe me—I can talk a lot of dense theory and carry on about a lot of big effing ideas— but that’s not what you’re here for, and this isn’t about me, it’s about you and your life. It’s my job to *get* you and respond to you on your terms, in your terms.
