Transforming Family Connections: Making Peace With Your Parents

"Beautifully crafted and courageous...Life-changing."
Presented by Carol-Ann Allen LMFT

For many of us, coming out has meant getting out. We've had to leave family behind and find our way to a more welcoming place. The LGBTQI spaces we call "our community" have been made possible by a decades-long mass migration of individuals leaving home in search of home.

If family estrangement is part of your story, or the story of someone you love, don't miss this special encore talk by Melbourne psychotherapist Carol-Ann Allen about the potential we each have to heal the painful legacy of family disconnection.

Making Peace With Your Parents was a highlight at Midsumma 2016: "Brave, inspiring, gentle, thought-provoking."; "So impressive."; "Beautifully crafted and courageous."; "A tour de force."; "An amazing experience.". Carol-Ann's inspiring talk at Midsumma last year, Courageous Conversations, re-energised many stuck relationships: "The message of her talks is vital and refreshing."; "Life-changing."

If you missed Making Peace With Your Parents in 2016, here's your second chance.
If you know someone who might benefit from this talk, bring them. Seating is limited, so book early.

Carol-Ann Allen LMFT has over 20 years experience working in the LGBTQI community as a psychotherapist, relationship counsellor and family therapist. Her private practice, Melbourne Psychotherapy Services, is located in St Kilda.

This encore presentation is a free community event sponsored by queerspace as part of the Transforming Family Connections program at Midsumma 2018.

Free event but booking required.
