Peer-Led and Professional-Led: Sharing Asexual/Aromantic Identity with Group Participants
Stella Jendrzejewski, M.A., Ed.M. & Sunanda Jalote, M.A., Ed.M.
As co-facilitators of a support group for those who identify on the asexual and/or aromantic spectrum, our workshop will discuss what it is like to run a group wherein the facilitators and participants share marginalized identities. We will examine the impact of utilizing our own identities in the group, demonstrating how integral such disclosure has been to the continued strength and success of an affirming and exploratory space for participants. Our presentation will be followed by a group discussion and debriefing session.
