Workshop 3: Accompanying LGBTQ students in Catholic schools

You’re invited to the last session of a three-part workshop for anyone interested in accompanying LGBTQ students in Catholic schools. The workshop brings together professors from counseling, sociology, theology, and education. We’ll ask questions like: How can we care for the emotional, mental, bodily, and spiritual health of our students? What are the risks faced by LGBTQ+ youth? What are the different approaches to wellness recommended by counselors and other mental health professionals?

Workshop 1: Wellness – Wednesday, March 20, 4:00-5:30pm
Workshop 2: Identity Development – Wednesday, April 10, 4:00-5:00
Workshop 3: Accompaniment – Wednesday, April 24, 4:00-5:30
All sessions in the Jardine Room in the Lombardo Student Center.

Free and open to all JCU community members, Catholic school parents, teachers, staff, coaches, and adults. Registration required: register at
