Sexual and gender minorities exhibit higher health-risk behaviors when compared to their dominant culture peers. Although the exact cause of such behaviors is not completely understood, literature is pointing to the effects that shame can have on concepts of self-worth, existential purpose, and connection to others. This workshop-style-presentation focuses on recognizing shame and its affect on sexual and gender minorities, understanding the connection between judgment and shame, and learning how to address issues of shame within the family system.
