MindOut Training: Boundaries in Safe Working

A virtual training session by MindOut, in collaboration with the LGBT Partnership, for those working/volunteering in the LGBT VCSE sector.

Those of us working and volunteering in our communities often face dilemmas and difficult situations with our professional and personal boundaries. How do we manage to work safely within our small and close-knit communities and in the context of enduring minority stress? This workshop will offer a confidential, creative and supportive space to explore the issues, share good practice and learn from each other.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify the professional and personal boundary challenges specific to our work.
  • Identify key conditions for working safely within LGBTQ communities.
  • Develop personal objectives to ensure we maintain positive boundaries for ourselves and our clients.
  • Participants will need pens and paper to complete the exercises given.

 

The Trainer

Darren Flint (he/she/they) joined MindOut five years ago and comes from a background in community activism. They currently lead MindOut’s busy counselling service as Counselling Coordinator. Alongside this they offer their own private practice specialising in younger trans*/non-binary clients, and neurodiversity. Darren has been delivering training programmes internally and for external clients for a number of years. They have particular expertise in issues including suicide prevention, self-care, professional boundaries and other topics of interest to front-line workers. Training participants provided the feedback that they appreciate Darren’s clear, careful style of delivery.

These sessions are open to anyone working or volunteering in the LGBT VCSE sector. If for any reason you have to cancel please let us know in advance so we can offer the space to another person. Please email [email protected] for more information.
