Queer & Trans POC: Stories from the Intersections

A training with Phoenix Jackson, LMFT 

Provided by Family Paths (CEU Provider #62239 thru CAMFT CEPA) in conjunction with Chabot-Las Positas Community College District and Alameda County through Title IV-E Funding. This training is geared towards clinicians working with children, youth and families involved with CFS or probation in Alameda County.  This workshop is available to you free of charge.


Training Description:  

Together, facilitator and participants will explore the ways in which QTPOC (Queer Trans People Of Color) experience multiple forms of oppression that, too often, are not addressed effectively within the therapeutic context. Combining personal stories, educational theory and professional experience, workshop facilitator will help participants move beyond dominant mental health paradigms toward a more holistic, culturally relevant, integrated approach. 

The Trainer: 

Phoenix Jackson, LMFT earned an M.A. in Somatic Psychotherapy at John F. Kennedy University in Pleasant Hill and was awarded Outstanding Student of the Year. Having served as a trainer in emergency preparedness, diversity & inclusion, and as a rape crisis counselor, Phoenix is proud to serve people struggling with the effects of sexual or racially-based trauma, LGBTQ folks, people with non-binary gender, as well as people navigating multiple intersections of oppression. Phoenix motivates from core principles of gratitude, kindness, and mercy in private practice at
