Description:

Gender equity is vital while gender equality is a misconception. Differentiating gender equity from gender equality is important in developing future psychologists and psychometricians who are gender empathic and not radically gender sensitive. Certain groups had been battling for gender equality which is usually an outcry against male dominance disregarding that the equality they strive for can be done in the context of freedom from bias or favoritism. The workshop will engage the participants in facilitated situational simulations to address multiple aspects including: social accountability, client and therapist safety, communication challenges, policy development, innovation and research aimed towards gender equity.

Description:

The sexual behavior of Filipino youth is getting hotter and wilder. Many of them are engaging in risky sexual activities at an early age without thinking about the possible negative consequences of their behavior. This is a major contributing factor to the drastic increase of new HIV infections in the country. In order to achieve a change among youth’s sexual behavior, an important step is to improve their knowledge concerning their sexual health. Therefore, young advocates must be empowered and equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to help their peers/other young people reduce their risky sexual behavior and promote good decision making. Likewise, this workshop is geared towards enhancement of participants’ knowledge, skills, and attitudes in providing sexual health and HIV information to promote positive behavioral change. More than this, they will be introduced to basic counseling skills necessary to implement the key practices of HIV Counseling including risk assessment, disclosure, and harm reduction.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) psychology has recently emerged as a field in psychology. This field in psychology has tried to capture the unique lived experiences and struggles of the LGBT community. Moreover, a number of studies have focused on the mental health and well-being of LGBT persons. Factors such as prejudice and discrimination, social stigma, microaggression, and minority stress have been identified as contributory factors to LGBT mental health and well-being. In this vein, the goal of this workshop is to enhance the critical lens of psychology students in identifying and dealing with these factors, and to learn practical ways to create safe spaces and provide support for the LGBT community.
