The University of Divinity is proud to present a transformative Professional Development module, “Providing Safety and Support for LGBTQA People of Faith: Towards Better Pastoral Care”.

This professional development module, expertly delivered by the leading advocate and trainer Jac Tomlins, tackles the crucial concept of ‘minority stress’ and the imperative of building structural resilience. Professional development certificates are available on request.

Our previous participants rave about this workshop:

  • “Thoughtful, delivered with great care, very relevant”
  • “I found all content to be delivered in a very caring and compassionate way”
  • “Very well written, explored, and explained. No ambiguity at all.”

Delve deep into the ideologies that fuel change and suppression practices, understanding their detrimental effects. Importantly, participants will be encouraged to introspect, adapting their practices to ensure inclusivity and support within their faith traditions and work environments.
