Imposter Syndrome Workshop by LEARNEST

Do you struggle with feelings of inadequacy? This workshop is specially designed to look at Imposter Syndrome through a queer lens.

Imposter syndrome is a phenomenon where you feel that your achievements or position are undeserved, or succumb to persistent anxiety and self-doubt despite apparent success and ability. It can drive people to overworking, perfectionism and chronic stress.

But what if we could befriend our imposter syndrome?

And what if it can teach us something about our internalised oppression?

This workshop helps us understand imposter syndrome, confront its messages and develop a positive relationship with some aspects of its effects while loosening its grip on our lives.

During this 90 minute online session, you will come together with other members of the LGBTQ+ community and explore strategies and techniques to support your wellbeing and challenge negative self-talk during this difficult time.

  • These sessions are only open to individuals who identify as LGBTQ+.
  • We use captions for our online events, if you have any additional adjustments please let us know when you book and we will do our best to accommodate.

Hosted by SAM HOPE – non-binary & bisexual activist, trainer and therapist. Sam has experience working with LGBTIQA+ individuals in a number of capacities for many years. Through Sam’s work, they have gained a rooted appreciation of oppression and minority stress and built links to many communities across the world.
