Lucie Fielding, PhD, MA, LMHCA (She/They) | Click here for information about Lucie Fielding

What would happen if we thought of our work as an opportunity to help clients imagine the radical and transformative possibilities of their being and their relationships, as opposed to merely "resolving problems?"

Lucie Fielding
Debunking the Safety Myth: A New Framework for Healing Amidst Uncertainty
Dr. Lucie Fielding, PhD, MA, LMHCA (she/they) | Click here for information about Lucie Fielding

Psychotherapists often presume that most forms of deep healing can take place only after we support a client in establishing a sense of safety. However, insisting on establishing a sense of safety can be countertherapeutic and invalidating for clients who are members of marginalized groups who may never feel safe in a profoundly unsafe world. In place of the safety axiom, this workshop will offer a new framework that will allow you to support clients in queer ambivalence, ambiguity, and uncertainty to support growth and change.
