Webinar: Understanding the role of resilience in gender and sexual minority communities

While it is well documented that Gender and Sexual Minority individuals have faced lifelong stigma, discrimination, and other experiences that may lead to adverse psycho-social outcomes, an emerging program of research suggests resilience can be a buffer against the impact of these stressors. This webinar will highlight how public health approaches to health and well-being have historically been rooted in a deficits based model and the recent shift in focus to examine strengths-based perspectives in GSM communities, especially in older HIV+ gay men.

Join this free, 60-minute webinar where we will discuss:

  • using a resiliency based approach to health disparities

  • strengths of the gender and sexual minority community in coping with stigma and discrimination
