Workshops and Education

  • Do you work in a physiotherapy or medical practice and don't really know how to best deal sensitively with patients who are outside gender and/or sexual norms without running the risk of asking too personal questions?
  • You are a social welfare agency, an institution, a group or organization and you have contact with gender or sexually diverse users of your services, or those who are not yet fully aware of their sexuality and/or identity? Do you have questions on how to make your services more accessible to these groups?
  • In both cases, recent studies have shown that sexually diverse and, in particular, trans persons are less likely to seek medical help and social support. The reasons for this is on the one hand in the discrimination experienced in those settings and on the other hand simply in the ignorance of service providers. Homo- and bisexuals, as well as trans people quickly become "experts" of their group and inappropriate questions are being asked which  have little to do with the desired care/help. This contributes to insecurity on both sides, which, as the studies have shown, often leads to the fact that needed help needed is not being received.
  • In order to prevent this and to guarantee adequate services for these groups, I offer interactive workshops and seminars for those who would like to deal in more detail with the topic of gender and sexuality. In an understandable and practical way, strategies are conveyed that will make your offer more inclusive, sensitive and inviting for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and inter people.
