Having Those Difficult Discussions About Relationships
November 15, 2023, 7-8:30pm ET

Parents/caregivers and families are undoubtedly concerned about their children’s safety and exposure to all types of relationships. If you are wondering how to navigate conversations around bodies, sex, intimacy, online safety, and relationships with your 13+ tween, teen, and young adult LGBTQIA+ loved one, we invite you to attend our virtual workshop. This is a mindful and important way to build your relationship and provide them with some life skills. We want to ensure that you can feel free to ask, share, and learn in a safe, non-judgemental space so we ask that you attend the workshop without your child and that you’re in a location where you have privacy.

This event has been completed and is no longer open for registration. Read below for more information about Dr. Ellerkamp’s next workshop.

Understanding Your LGBTQIA+ Child’s Nonbinary Identity
December 13, 2023, 7-8:30pm ET

Do you have a clear understanding of what nonbinary is? Does your child or loved one identify as nonbinary? You may have asked them but still have so many questions and want to be in a space with like-minded people who also have questions you aren’t even aware of or are willing to ask your loved one.

Shifting outside of binary concepts, you will learn the differences between binary and nonbinary and understand how your loved ones’ lives are impacted by their identity and how you can support them.
