Boundaries & Self Care for Queer Caregivers
December 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Boundaries & Self Care for Queer Caregivers is a therapeutic group for LGBTQIA+ people who struggle to care for themselves while finding it easy to care for others.
This group conceives of “caregivers” as related to a broad range of experiences, including health professionals, social workers, sex workers, activists, organizers, advocates, empaths, healers, parents, and individuals who identify as struggling with people-pleasing or codependent relationship patterns.
Together, we will build a community of support for each other as we learn to better support ourselves.
Meetings will combine mutual witnessing and peer support alongside concrete exercises, activities, and take home resources to help put boundary and self-care practices into action.
Guiding political frameworks will consider disability justice, self preservation under capitalism, and ways that emotional labor often serves as a survival mechanism for marginalized communities.
