Lee Beckstead, a Utah-based psychologist well known for his work on the intersection between sexual orientation and religion, will co-facilitate a workshop on Saturday, March 16. The title of the workshop is “Building Bridges to Increase Efficacy: An Ethics Workshop on Respecting Religious and Sexual/Gender Orientation Differences.”

For information about the workshop, visit the LGBTQ-Affirmative Psychotherapist Guild of Utah. “Early Bird” registration is $110, but members of the Guild and students and non-clinical service providers in non-professional organizations can attend for a fraction of that fee ($70 and $40, respectively).

“A key component for this workshop is to promote a deeper level of understanding that moves our community beyond the fragmentation that exists when we are embroiled in stereotypes and misunderstandings,” writes Beckstead. “The workshop is being organized – and will be facilitated – with a special commitment to compassionate dialogue. We are invested in an authentic desire to explore the dynamic potentials for alliances and common-ground understanding that can contribute to a vibrant community. Furthermore, we hope that clinical biases, blind spots, and limitations can be ameliorated through a comprehensive and collective approach.”
